Aaron Wherry of Macleans dutifully publishes (see blog here) Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff’s defense of poor TD Bank CEO Ed Clark for his verbal blast directed at the Conservative government and personal attacks on the PM during a speech in Florida. (see story here)
Iffy and Wherry don’t bother to include a few details such as Clark advises Iffy and that he got the nickname Red Ed from former Liberal energy minister Marc Lalonde. Clark just happened to work for Lalonde and created the Alberta-killing NEP .
He was the also the one behind the recent sponsorship of reports from the Pembina Institute and the David Suzuki Foundation on a climate-change study. Their reports recommends that Canada cut its greenhouse emissions by limiting growth in Alberta and Saskatchewan.
