Damage done

It's great to see a healthy movement afoot on Twitter to push the Libs to vote for the NDP's Climate Change Accountability Act on Wednesday rather than dragging their heels as they've previously done with Bill C-311.

But it's worth noting that thanks in large part to the Libs' previous delay tactics, the toughest work on the bill is yet to come. After all, the Cons have never been shy about rejecting the will of elected officials when it comes to avoiding action to fight climate change. And now that they hold a plurality in the Senate, it's anybody's guess as to whether there's any prospect of the bill finding its way into law even if it clears tomorrow's key vote in the House of Commons.
