Re: May tells the truth on cli­mate change, Lor­rie Gold­stein col­umn, Jan. 3.

El­iz­abeth May may be the only Cana­dian fed­eral leader telling the truth on cli­mate change is­sues. How­ever, her pro­posed poli­cies are more than scary and would, if she ever got the chance to im­ple­ment them, de­stroy Canada’s econ­omy and any hope for a pos­i­tive fu­ture. When are the left­ies and eco-wing nuts like May go­ing to re­al­ize that Canada is a coun­try that ex­pe­ri­ences win­ter (fairly of­ten!) with cold tem­per­a­tures, which makes us ex­tremely de­pen­dent on fos­sil fu­els to sur­vive? What PM Trudeau and his in­com­pe­tent gov­ern­ment are do­ing to dam­age Al­berta’s oil­patch is be­yond com­pre­hen­sion. For Canada to flour­ish and have any kind of a pos­i­tive fu­ture re­quires pipe­lines to be con­structed as soon as pos­si­ble. How­ever, un­for­tu­nately I don’t be­lieve that Trudeau and Mckenna have any in­ten­tions of do­ing any­thing to as­sist our fos­sil fuel in­dus­try. Their bot­tom line is to de­stroy any hope of fu­ture oil­sands de­vel­op­ment by mak­ing it so dif­fi­cult with red tape and re­stric­tions that it en­sures that there is very lit­tle hope for pri­vate com­pa­nies to gain ap­proval for the con­struc­tion of pipe­lines. A change of gov­ern­ment to some com­mon sense is re­quired!

LIND­SAY HEP­BURN Cana­di­ans will get to set the pri­or­i­ties in this year’s fed­eral elec­tion.
