Tom Mulcair in Saskatchewan

Well, Tom Mulcair was in Saskatchewan on June 23. He delivered a sound message, including that the environment and the economy aren't separate issues (something this blog has noted before).  

Mulcair also clarified his position on oil sands development.

“We are in favour of development of the oilsands as long as it’s sustainable development that includes basic principles such as polluters pay.”
The media, in their thoughtless, knee-jerk attempts to portray this as a national-unity busting, East vs West, cynical political move as opposed to a long held environmental conviction will probably largely ignore this qualification. It figures.
