Reevely: If Ontario won't try to stop climate change, we need to do a lot more to get ready for it

Premier Doug Ford’s signal achievement in his first 100 days leading Ontario has been to kill the province’s climate-change policy and replace it with promises.

He flew back from his western tour, having appeared with Premier Scott Moe and Alberta conservative leader Jason Kenney to rail against the evils of carbon taxes, to take a short Thanksgiving break and then rally once again in his Etobicoke riding Tuesday night, celebrating his three months in office.

In the meantime, the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published yet another of its grab-us-by-the-lapels-and-scream reports, and an economist won a Nobel for a lifetime of work on climate-change policy. By its actions, the Progressive Conservative government asserts that they’re ninnies.
