A new report out shows that Canada is in the leading contributor to global deforestation. Adding yet another bruise to the country’s already battered environmental record.
The report says that over the last 13 years, the world has taken down over 100 million acres of virgin trees, or roughly eight percent. And of that eight percent, Canada led the way causing over 20 percent of it.
These are disturbing figures. Disturbing to the point that government should get involved. But will they? Of course not. Because to the Conservatives, helping the environment doesn’t help them get re-elected. All of those “green” people are gonna vote for the left anyways.
