Canada's new minority Parliament got down to work Friday with Andrew Scheer staking out the Conservatives' ground as the only party that will unabashedly support the energy sector and never relent on its opposition to carbon taxes.

Responding to the Liberal throne speech that opened the new session of Parliament on Thursday, the Conservative leader proposed an amendment that would, among other things, commit the government to scrapping the carbon tax and stopping what Scheer called "the attack on the western Canadian economy."

All the other parties in the House of Commons support the tax and advocate bolder action to tackle climate change making it virtually impossible for the Conservatives to find support for the amendment.
