Liberals, Oil Surveys, and Right Wales

“Is the Trudeau government attuned to the threats to marine species in the Gulf of St. Lawrence from seismic surveys and drilling,” asks Michael Harris in this week’s iPolitics article, “How the federal government is doing wrong by North Atlantic right wales.”

“Or Is it all political and bureaucratic razzle-dazzle while the beat from the Harper era goes on?

“Are Canadians getting a new car or just a paint-job?”

Harris asks what motivates the Trudeau administration to continue to abide the influence of offshore petroleum boards in approval processes for oil and gas exploration. What an important question!
