In the Ed Board discussion the other day for Ottawa West-Nepean, John Baird claimed that the Conservatives had always opposed cap & trade. That sounded fishy, and the Ottawa Citizen did a fact check, revealing a flip-flop on John Baird's part. Here's the Conservative throne speech in 2008: "We will work with the provincial governments and our partners to develop and implement a North America-wide cap and trade system for greenhouse gases" Jim Prentice in 2009: "It has been our stated intent, from the outset, to eventually move to a hard cap and trade is our view that a key objective should be a common cap and trade system" Ottawa West-Nepean families deserve an MP and government that will work for the environment and clean air for families to breathe, not John Baird's flip-flops.
