Parties Make Their Point on the Environment

Question period in Canada's Parliament resumed on Monday but quickly descended into an all out Point-a-thon as the parties engaged in a spirited debate over who was the most concerned about the environment.

Environment Minister John Baird made a strong case through sheer intensity, while Stephen Harper preferred to stickwith his bread and butter - pointing heavenward to his personal source of inspiration in all matters spiritual and political.

Meanwhile, NDP leader Jack Layton took a more understated approach that left many MP's, including Stephane Dion, wondering if he was talking about his party's environmental platform or indicating where the NDP sat in the current polls.
