The Liz May way to stop the oil sands


“You won’t recognize Canada when I’m through with it,” former prime minister Stephen Harper supposedly said somewhere, sometime. Despite its questionable authenticity, the left used the quote to great effect during their decade-long assassination of Harper’s character. Reading Jason Unrau’s first-hand account of what Elizabeth May did to the Mackenzie Gas Pipeline project, and is now doing to any and all Canadian oil sands pipeline projects, makes one wonder if anyone will recognize Canada when May and her fellow eco-warriors are through with our energy industry.
