The Shoe Is On The Other Foot

OTTAWA — While it has aggressively slammed environmental groups for using foreign dollars to finance a small portion of their budgets, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government is being tight-lipped about revelations that climate change skeptics in Canada are getting money from an American think-tank with corporate funding.

Another good piece from PostMedia's Mike De Souza, who's up for a National Newspaper award this year for his coverage of the AGW Denialist movement in Canada.  I just wish Mike had more competition.  It always surprises me how much coverage climate change issues get in the U.S. and U.K. press as opposed to Canada.  That's what happens, though, when the national government and too many of the nation's people are content to see themselves in the role of hewers of wood and bearers of bitumen.
