What's wrong with the Canadian Environmental Movement? Why don't Canadian environmental organisations protest about the huge impact of successive government's policies to promote mass immigration to Canada? The six million more people imported to Canada since 1991 would account for four times as much GHG emissions as the Alberta tar sands project. Overpopulation is the number one issue that multiplies every other impact. Why is this message of the original promoter of Earth Day forgotten today?

I just saw Canadian Liberal Opposition Leader Stephan Dion in an interview extol his vision of carbon taxes that would shift the burden from income to those activities that were hurting the environment. He didn’t mention activities like being an MP who would vote for merely a freeze in the expansion of the tar sands developments in Alberta or in his words a plan to make it “green”.
