"Hocus pocus, boogah boogah economics"
Obviously, Jack Layton is in agreement with this assessment:
"Well, we certainly would have never made any such comparison," he said. "I think it's very unfortunate and certainly not something that we consider to be wise or appropriate."
I agree. Anyone who would compare something like the Kyoto accord to appeasement lacks common sense and good judgment.
Via Aaron Wheery comes this gem from Jack:
"Mr. Speaker, enough is enough. We have been hearing those kinds of comments from the Prime Minister for 16 years since he began promising to clean up the air for Canadians and instead we have worse pollution than ever. He makes Neville Chamberlain look like a stalwart in standing up to a crisis. Smog is sending people to emergency wards at unprecedented levels. The prairies are drying up. We have forest fires like we have never had before. All we get are promises of plans to be brought forward some day. Will he bring forward a plan, yes or no?"
