What Do You See?

...when you click on this link. Nothing, right? That's because our new Tory government has quietly snuffed the The Government of Canada Climate Change website, which served as a resource for teachers wishing to cover the various issues related to Global Warming in class.
This is apparently part of a greater purge of information related to Global Warming from official government websites.

H/T to DeSmogBlog, my new favorite blog.

I know Liberals want the feds to do everything, apparently including providing websites to teach our children, so I can see why they're upset.

Personally, I hope the environment is a HUGE election issue next time 'round, since at least three Lib leadership candidates have admitted we can't meet the Kyoto targets and the Libs' environmental record is being seen for what it is - pathetic and worse than that of Bush and the US!

We Tories are dreaming of a strong Green leader like May and more people voting on the environment, since they sure won't be voting Lib - and that can only help us Tories. M-A-J-O-R-I-T-Y

Gee whiz, the way some of the Tories talk it's a wonder all these problems weren't solved long ago.
Oh right, they need a MAJORITY to be effective.
Well I for one will be more than happy to see the reduction in sites in the near future since the whole country has had an epiphany and has seen the light and is therefore in no need of information from the big hairsprayed head.
I might have gotten a wee bit carried away there, but will expect a suitably godlike smackdown in the near future.
Happy Pride!
