Rex Murphy: The PM has changed his look. But it’s a policy change that’s needed

The No. 1 priority now is not global warming. It is national cohesion. To repair the rift within Confederation, the Liberals must nullify what has been the central component of their public policy to date

The No. 1 priority for Canada now is not global warming. It is national cohesion. To repair the rift within Confederation, the Liberals have to remove, nullify what has been the central component of their public policy to date. They have to change the songbook, lay down the hymnals to climate change.

As Lincoln put it, a house divided against itself cannot stand. As an even more revered authority has noted, no man can serve two masters. And in the Canadian context, a national government cannot serve both Paris and Calgary. On one point are the environmentalists and myself in full concord. You cannot advance the energy industry in any way, and simultaneously maintain you are foremost a champion of climate change. The romance with an issue beyond Canada’s capacity to have any realistic impact on has had the direct cost of driving large parts of Canada’s West into ruminations of separation.
