Rachel Notley Has Staged A Masterwork Of Political Imagery

Sean Mallen | Posted 11.26.2016 | Canada Alberta
Sean Mallen

Rachel Notley's challenge has been to reassure the fiercely skeptical Alberta business elites that were horrified to wake up last May to discover the NDP had risen to power. With the economy already hammered by plummeting oil prices, they feared that the New Democrats would inflict further damage through a climate change plan that would drive up costs and cripple the oil sands. But business leaders in the Alberta can read the financial press as well as the rest of us and now seem to be buying Rachel Notley's view that they better try to be part of the solution.

Nick Fillmore | Posted 06.01.2016 | Canada Politics
Nick Fillmore

During a flight from Montreal to Halifax, I missed a chance to carry out an act of "shaming" against a person who I think has abused his position of authority in Canada.

Could This Be Payback Time For Big Polluters?

Andrew Gage | Posted 01.20.2015 | Canada British Columbia

Society as a whole saw jobs created, collected tax dollars and bore at least some of the blame, for the harm caused by both tobacco and asbestos. And yet this did not absolve the manufacturers of responsibility for the damage caused by their product. So yes, we are all responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, but fossil fuel companies are much more responsible.
