Mr. Speaker, the environment minister may be proud of his green thumb but it is his iron fist that Canadians are worried about.
After his ridiculous statements about the special tax on sport utility vehicles, the minister is now worried about emissions from cows and pigs. That is right. Just when we thought the junk science on global warming could not get any more weird, it just has. Now the ranchers and farmers who raise our tasty four-legged friends are the new environmental villains.
This brings a completely new dimension to the Liberal gas tax proposal. Will the minister introduce an anti-flatulence tax, a dollar for every animal that passes wind?
If the minister is concerned about the global warming myth, I have some advice. Tell his Liberal caucus not to exhale.
