COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN CBC NEWS

 

“Green platform has some big fiscal holes, hidden costs Math errors and missing details cloud party’s claim of transparency”

 

You know, there’s green and there’s Green. They are not the same thing.

The Green Party can have no idea of the immense costs their platform would bring.

Costs in dollar terms and in other terms, such as sound business and trade and development.

“green” in the sense of caring about nature is a good quality, and I very much share it.

But “Green” as in these kinds of massive, unknown, unproved schemes – almost resembling projects from the old USSR where they moved whole rivers and levelled mountains – is dangerous religious fanaticism.

I would just like to add that I very much like and admire Elizabeth May for a number of things.

But it is possible to have likable and admirable qualities and to still be dead wrong about some matters.

I rather like some of the Pope’s qualities, but I wouldn’t want him running a country.
