The more Dion does this, the better it will be for his campaign:
At a rally in Napanee, Ont., Mr. Dion said that some people have called the plan complicated. “It’s very simple. I will give you the Liberal plan in six words, you will see: Cut income taxes, shift to pollution.” He then challenged Conservative leader Stephen Harper to explain his environmental plan in six words. “Okay, okay 10 words. Thirty words? No, no I will help him. In two words: No plan.”
As I have said before, I like the Liberal TV Ads on the Green Shift, and I like this approach of explaining it in the simplest terms as possible. Far from “running away” from the policy as Harper claimed he would do, Dion has been bringing it up on a rather consistent basis. This new “keep it simple” approach will help him greatly in selling the plan to Canadians in his stump speeches and reminding them that Harper does not have any credible plan of his own. Harper has more or less admitted this by advocating policies that will not only increase GHG but sap the nation’s finances further – A “Brown-Grey Shift”.
By the way, while Harper and his Conservatives may not have anything directly to do with this -another oil spill in Alberta that has killed over 500 birds; mostly ducks and swallows – it’s a rather tragic symbol in my opinion of how the Conservatives view the environment – which is a rather dim one.
