Po­lit­i­cal lead­ers try­ing to chase two op­po­sites

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Opinion -


My fa­ther once sat my teenager-self down. He cut to the chase, solemnly pro­claim­ing, “He who runs af­ter two hares will catch nei­ther.”

That’s all he said but I got it. I needed to de­cide what was more im­por­tant: school or fun.

My fa­ther is long gone now but his old proverb ap­plies to this day. Not­ley and Trudeau, you are re­peat­ing a clas­sic mis­take, si­mul­ta­ne­ously run­ning af­ter one thing and its op­po­site.

You need to take your fin­gers out of too many pies and de­cide which is your mas­ter, cli­mate change or fos­sil fu­els.

I fear you both risk los­ing it all for your­selves and for us all. Ca­role Lavallee
