"We recognize that we need to do more on the environment" - Prime Minister Stephen Harper
Stephen Harper has finally come to the realization that his government has underestimated the importance of the environment to Canadians. So in today's not-unexpected cabinet shuffle, he removed Rona Ambrose as environment minister. John Baird, a more experienced cabinet minister, is her replacement.
Ambrose has been deservedly maligned for her cavalier attitude toward the Kyota accord and for her lack of performance in implementing the new government's clean air act. She may have been inexperienced in the environment portfolio, but that does not excuse her ridiculing attempts to slow climate change.
South Calgary's (the riding in which the Zombies live) very own Jason Kenney has been appointed secretary of state for multiculturalism and Canadian identity. You all remember Jason Kenney? He's the intellectual ninja who stated during the same sex marriage debates that gay people should be allowed to legally marry, but only to heterosexuals.
Bring on the clowns.
