Kitchener-Waterloo Conservative MP Peter Braid is why you never blindly support someone just because they represent your political party:
In what is being considered a first by a member of the federal Conservatives, Kitchener-Waterloo MP Peter Braid stated publicly on CBC News Network’s Power and Politics that recent extreme weather and climate change are connected.
“We are seeing the effects, the impacts of climate change,” Braid told host Evan Solomon on Monday. “With climate change comes extreme weather events. We saw that through the floods in southern Alberta, we’re now seeing that with the ice storms in Kitchener-Waterloo and Toronto, with the extreme cold across the country.”
Solomon later asked Braid to confirm he was saying that extreme weather and climate change are related, to which Braid replied, “Absolutely, I’m confirming I said that.” (see here)
Braid is the reason why we see things like the moronic light bulb ban (see here) come out of this Conservative government.
If I was in this riding, I would be doing everything that I could to ensure Braid is defeated in the next nomination race.
