The vapid Liberal leader wannabe Christy Clark found out from PM Stephen Harper that no, means no on the decision to not allow the development of the Prosperity Mine project over environmental concerns.
Clark is running for leader on the lame theme of ”Family First” which contradicts her vow earlier this month to use her first meeting with Harper if she became premier to demand a reversal on the decision to stop this mine:
“This isn’t the final decision as far as I am concerned,” “is the common sense of it, the ridiculousness of this decision, the common sense of changing it. I think [Ottawa] does want to change it. At the political level, they see how dumb this decision is, so I think there’s an appetite to change it. … They also have a federal election coming up, so I think they are sensitive to that as well.” (see here)
I hi-lited “political level” above not only because of the total disregard for the environment she shows but it made me wonder who exactly has she been talking to in Ottawa about this “dumb decision”.
Check out Harper’s response made to reporters on Monday while he was in BC:
“These kinds of decisions are made on the basis of facts – not just economic facts, but also environmental facts in this case, and proponents will have to address that. This is not a matter of political bargaining.”
Back to you Christy… (see here)
