The Conservative Party of Canada and its provincial allies, including the B.C. Liberals, refuse to acknowledge the gravity of the climate crisis.

They're ready to march straight into the abyss by promoting more fossil-fuel production and more fossil-fuel exports.

The Liberal Party of Canada professes to accept the reality of climate change. But in government, it continues approving fossil-fuel projects, ensuring that the country won't meet its international obligations under the Paris Agreement.

Both major parties are aided by mainstream media reporters, columnists, and editors, who are willfully blind to the magnitude of the problem. And it can be argued that many of them, like Todd, are committing "malpractice" by failing to focus sufficient attention on the climate.
