Green Conservative Gets The NIMBYs
They're coming to build wind-mills in David Frum's back-yard, and suddenly he's agin' it. This is the Conservative who's been trumpeting his green credentials, and in particular his support for alternative energy and a carbon tax, for years now. Of course during the last federal election he went 100% silent on the issue, only to pop up afterwards--with Harper safely in office again and the issue back on the furthest back of the back-burners--to start promoting it again! I guess he expects other people to "substitute away from oil". Out there in Prince Edward County they're sticking with the old ways.
