It isn't very environmentally friendly is it........
After all, if we didn't have all those pesky cars, we wouldn't need the oil in the first place!!
I think an expedited closure of the Ontario auto industry should be part of the Leap Manifesto too. (just kidding of course).
If you read the Manifesto carefully, they suggest all these oil patch jobs can be replaced with new jobs in social work, health care and the arts (I'm not kidding here - it actually says that).
Again, the Leap Manifesto will sink the NDP into political irrelevance. Jack Layton must be spinning in his grave. You don't build a meaningful political party based on ideological dogma. You need to have things in your platform that entice people, and then gradually
introduce change. The manifesto is the opposite of this.
BTW - Never trust any political document with the word "manifesto" in it. It's not a wise thing to do...........
