Yes, that is an absolute hyperbole. Did it get your attention? Yesterday the Canadian House of Commons passed the disastrous bill c-38 that rolls back much of Canada’s environmental protection legislation. Opposition parties mounted a desperate attempt to make amendments or at least split off some of the more contentious issues so there could be a proper debate. In the end the Conservative government of Canada made absolutely no concessions.
Bill C-38 now moves to the Conservative dominated senate* where it is expected to pass without issue.
- Fun fact: the Canadian senate (often referred to as the chamber of sober second thought) is an unelected body. Members are appointed by the Prime Minister and serve until they reach the age of 75
