Maxime Bernier for Prime Minister!

Not quite yet though! Actually, I support Stephen Harper as Prime Minister right now but down the road a while who knows?
Maxime Bernier former Industry and Foreign Affairs Minister now backbencher is someone I could support whenever PM Harper decides he wants retire. His stance on the economy and free enterprise is something I totally agree with. Now he is expressing his doubt in the global warming IPCC so called science. He's a skeptic! Thank you Maxime!

Finally someone on the government side with the cajones to speak out.
Norman Spector's piece in today's Globe posts excerpts from his letter to La Presse

“Environmental groups in Copenhagen criticized our government for blocking an agreement … and again when Jim Prentice announced our targets at the end of January ... But with each passing week we see the wisdom of the government’s moderate position … since December, a debate has broken out in the media over the science of warming, a debate that had been stifled due to political correctness … the numerous errors by the IPCC add to alternative theories of warming that have been put forward over the years.

We now recognize that it’s possible to be a “skeptic,” or at least to keep an open mind about nearly all critical aspects of the warming theory. For example, while no one questions whether there has been warming, there is no consensus among scientists as to its degree.

Moreover, we realize that during the period of greatest concern about warming – the last decade – temperatures have stopped increasing! Meanwhile, the quantity of CO2 in the atmosphere, said to be the cause of warming according to the official theory, is still increasing. Some very serious scientists believe that we are under-estimating the influence of the sun and other factors that have nothing to do with carbon emissions.

Mojib Latif, a German researcher associated with the IPCC who essentially supports the warming theory, said last fall that temperatures may decline for two decades before warming resumes. No model predicted this. But the same models claim to predict the number of degrees of warming by the end of the century. And that’s only one of the “certainties” about which there is no consensus.

What is certain is that it would be irresponsible to spend billions of dollars and to impose unnecessarily stringent regulations to solve a problem whose gravity we still are not certain about. The alarmism that has characterized this debate is no longer appropriate. Canada is wise to be cautious.”

I wish PM Harper and Minister Prentice would make a statement like this. I know there are more out there in the CPC caucus who doubt the man made global warming . I only hope more will come out now express their doubts.

BTW. Maxime Bernier has a very good blog. I suggest you go visit it if you haven't already.

Update: the unedited letter. CBC


  1. Maxime Bernier could wake on water and I would not support another quebecer as PM. quebec anything is the reason Canada is in the screwed up political situation of the day.

    Rob C

  2. Yes Rob C.... I agree... but is that Quebec's fault or more the average Canadians approach to politics of "I'm not interested until it effects me" or the "Bitch about it after the fact" or "I'm sorry" appolagetic approach most Canadians have.

    Quebec isn't the problem... it's the rest of us for putting up with the drama queen in our midst

  3. Holly Moelly! I was thinking Peter McKay would do well but, wow Max has really got my attention. Being from Quebec is a bonus.

  4. I think Bernier is a terrible idea.

    All the baggage and all

    I would like to see someone like Jason Kenney
    or Rob Moore.

  5. Mr Ed.. My theory is . The people of quebec have been on the free ride for so long that they vote for whoever will continue to supply that ride (the bloc) with the tired old dead threat of separation. If "the people" of quebec gave a damn about Canada as a nation the bloc would not exist. That is why I would like to see a referendum as to if Canadians want quebec to remain in Confederation.

  6. I am proud of MAX today for breaking the silence. I am very impressed!!!!!



This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
