Harper Government Quietly Deals With Arctic Climate Change So As To Not Upset Their 'Denier' Supporters

Conservative MP Daryl Kramp introduced a motion in the House of Commons on October 5th to rename the Northwest Passage the “Canadian Northwest Passage.” There was immediate support from all four caucuses but little or no MSM coverage.

Firstly the motion was not introduced by the 'government' but by one of their MP's. That lowered the story on the radar screen for the main stream media. The motion is intended to try and strengthen Canada's position in the upcoming international dispute over use and administration of the opening Arctic seaway. Both the USA and Russia are disputing Canada's claim of sovereignty in the Arctic.

Secondly, the Conservatives have a large number of supporters who, because of their economic ideology, are hard core climate change 'deniers'. The challenge for the Harper government is to deal with the effects of climate change in the Arctic while at the same time, remaining quiet so as to not upset their own supporters.

The Conservatives are demonstrating a high degree of Cognitive Dissonance on the issue of Arctic Climate Change - it is happening, but they are afraid of acknowledging the reality of it.

Want proof that they are afraid of acknowledging Climate Change? Check this out ... Daryl Kramp issued a news release concerning his motion dated October 5th. BUT it was immediately deleted from his website ... you won't find it now!!
