Summary

Some say the environment will be this century's health-care conundrum. Canadians are waking up from our Liberal hegemony mirage and finding out that we're not the progressive country they told us we were. And now, a country that stayed out of Iraq and embraced equal marriage has a neo-conservative PM-and a Liberal emissions record that's worse than that of George W. Bush.
