C-288 could have been a good manoeuvre had it contained any significant content which would have compelled a significant action or expense by the Cons on the environment.  But it was a typical cake-and-eat-it-to expedition: the liberals wanted to force the Cons’ hand without taking any of the responsibility for the consequent action.  This is classic parlour play.  How about some real use of the minority government to achieve some real results and not just crass electioneering?  Perhaps it is true, priorities are hard to identify when all you want is the big chair.
