Rex Murphy points to pathetic size of Canada's forest fires compared to Brazil's Amazon - 2019-08-27
"Many Canadians, particularly this government, think that a few thousand hectares in Northern BC is sufficient in the shadow of smouldering giants like Brazil or the USA," touted Murphy. "The glories of the 2016 Fort MacMurray Fire have long disappeared like Justin Trudeau's shirt at a crowded beach. The embers of productivity are being put out post haste and the only one being burned in all of this are the little people like our corporations."
Murphy illustrated the threats of the "green economy" and pined for the return of a smoke-filled Canada when the country was a lead exporter of forest fires.
