  • Alberta oilsands ironies

    Peter Lougheed and David Suzuki are not two names you would normally expect to find in the same sentence, let alone on the same side of an issue. But when it comes to the Alberta oilsands, these bedfellows aren't so strange when you consider what's at stake.

    The former Alberta premier loves his province. The environmentalist loves his planet. Their common ground is a slab of Alberta the size of Florida, and they both want to put the brakes on the out-of-control development of the oilsands, Canada's fastest growing source of greenhouse gas emissions.


Now that former cabinet minister Theresa Oswald has entered the NDP leadership race, do you believe the "gang of five" rebel ministers were right to publicly criticize Premier Greg Selinger's leadership?
