Don't pout, darling, it's the truth
Rona Ambrose, looking more like she's pouting for a photographer than considering greenhouse gases.

Apparently I'm not the only one questioning Rona Ambrose's ability to perform her job. The NDP tabled a motion before the commons demanding that she resign.
The motion won't pass; the Liberals have said they'll abstain from the vote. They apparently agree that she's incompetent but the Conservatives threatened to turn a passing vote into a Fall election - and the Liberals probably don't want to spur an election just yet in case Canadians still think that (not withstanding Ms. Ambrose's astounding lack of qualification for her job) the Torys are more competent than the Liberals on balance.
All I know is that SOMEBODY should PLEASE get Canada some kind of environmental plan. Surely someone up in Ottawa can manage that? Especially since a new report from NRTEE (National Roundtable on the Environment and the Economy) says that Canada could reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 60 per cent by 2050 using existing technology and without hurting the economy.
