It’s not every day you look to Sun Media for criticism of the new federal government, or even back-handed support for Kyoto. And yet…
Thanks to Paul Wells for pointing to this column in the Sun where Greg Weston reveals some shady play on the truth by Environment Minister Rona Ambrose. A report today by Alan Findlay reveals even more factual sleight of hand.
A little snip:
“Sun Media has learned that costing figures cited by Ambrose during testimony to the environment and sustainable-development committee don’t match estimates offered by the purported source.”
Testimony to a committee? That sounds an awful lot like the kind of activity that should, by law, involve some dedication to the truth. Someone should check on that.
