There used to be a time when Conservative governments cared about the environment says Liberal MP Marc Miller.
“They don’t anymore,” said Miller on Nation to Nation Thursday.
“They just care about a shrinking base.”
Which is why the Conservatives are feeding into the base – heading into a fall election – when they say Bill C-69 will kill pipelines he added.
“So absolutely false,” responded Conservative MP Cathy McLeod, “that we do not care about the environment but what we don’t want put in place is a process that does nothing for environment but increases red tape across the country.”
It was rare show of combativeness for Miller, a regular on Nation to Nation, who usually sticks to party lines on any topic.
