Blogging Tory (and the owner of the ugliest fucking blog in Christendom) "NB Tory Lady" gets all moist over the supercalifragadeliciousness of Glorious Leader Stephen Harper:
Bridging an impasse: the Harper Government does the impossible
Wow! Doing the "impossible." Normally, I'm suitably impressed with people who do stuff that's just really, really difficult. But the "impossible?" I can certainly understand the reason for NB's prolonged Harpergasm. But let's read on.
Voice of the Association Group has their say, read it as written below.
Um ... OK, no idea who these "Voice of the Association Group" folks are but, apparently, we're supposed to be impressed that they're weighing in on this. And what exactly do they have to say?
In a masterful stroke of bridging an impasse in public policy, the Harper government has done what was once thought impossible.
Yeah, yeah, we get it, did the "impossible," whatever, can we move on already? What exactly happened here? Oh ...
According to a report in today’s Globe and Mail, “A committee of seemingly competing interests is reworking part of the Harper government's green plan after conflicting complaints from industry and environmentalists. The panel of environmental groups, industry lobbyists and federal and provincial officials must report to cabinet by mid-September on ways to improve the Conservatives' air-quality plan.” ...
So here you have, sitting down at the table together, uber-environmentalists and the big polluters that Stéphane Dion wants to tax out of business. How’s that for building consensus?
Well, that's pretty damned special, NB, and my hat is off to Dear Leader Stephen and ... and ... and ... uh ... you know, while we're here, do you mind if we read that G&M piece a bit more carefully. Maybe the bits you left out, NB? I know you won't mind. So ... what do we have here?
Stakeholder group reworks Tory air-quality plan
Um ... OK ... they're "reworking" the Tory plan? What exactly does that mean? Let's keep reading:
A committee of seemingly competing interests is reworking part of the Harper government's green plan after conflicting complaints from industry and environmentalists.
The panel of environmental groups, industry lobbyists and federal and provincial officials must report to cabinet by mid-September on ways to improve the Conservatives' air-quality plan.
Its recommendations are likely to be seriously weighed by the Tories as they prepare to publish regulations on air quality and greenhouse-gas emissions.
Yeah, read that already, but one gets the feeling there's a bit more to this story. Ah ... here we go:
“We all want an alternative to what the federal government originally proposed. I think there's a consensus that there (are) some real, fundamental flaws in it.
“So we all know that we can only come up with that alternative if we all keep working together.”
The committee was struck after widespread discontent with the federal regulatory framework for air emissions announced by the Conservatives in April 2007.
Oh. In other words, these disparate groups and organizations agreed to work together because they realized they all shared a common philosophy -- that the CPoC's plan sucked dick. Yes, that's quite the accomplishment there, NB -- being so universally reviled that even natural enemies agree that they might as well work together to oppose you. Gosh, but you must be so proud.
P.S. And while we're at it, what's with this "Voice of the Association Group" that NB Tory Lady seems to keep whinging on about? Let's see:

Just when you think they can't get any more hacktacular ...
AFTERSNERK: Commenter Bert is also super-duper excited and can't stand to be left out of the celebration:
Is there anything this guy (PM Harper)doesn,t do asks the teacher to her class.OH OH i have one thing he doesn,t do Jimmy says exitededly.Tell the class what it is little Jimmy Canuck says the teacher.He doesn,t let Canadians down like the Liberals do.Well Jimmy thats great and you get an A+ for being right.If only the rest of Canada would be so bright and see what is happening,instead of holding on to the hate.
Whereupon Bert was given a gold star, and they all had cake and Kool-Aid and took a nap.
