Remember sustainable development?
Under the Harper government™, sustainable development of the environment has all but gone the way of the dodo…
And now, the Harper government™ has removed the long-term goal of “sustainable development” from its plans for the environment, opting instead to focus solely on using and abusing the environment for the short-term goal of “economic prosperity”.
With #shuffle13, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Prosperity and Sustainable Growth [which had included previous Environment Ministers] has been re-branded as the Cabinet Committee on Economic Prosperity and newly-minted Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq is ^not among its members.
Actions, however, speak louder than words.
