Activists of the world unite

My column today is likely to annoy environmentalists and community activists but what the hey. I happen to believe every word of it and would be happy to expound in greater detail if you like.

Take Rob Moir, the NBP candidate in the federal election. Somehow I am on his email distribution list and I have received 4-5 emails on the ‘issues’. All of them have been negative slams with no alternatives offered beyond platitudes. I know that kind of stuff is designed to whip up the NDP base and I am sure it will – but if Moir really wanted to get elected wouldn’t he adopt a solutions-oriented more mainstreet approach?

He doesn’t like refineries, nuclear power plants, forestry operations, etc. but what does he like? He should start sending around emails with his five point plan for resuscitating the NB economy.
