The problem of regulators becoming captive of the regulated is not a new concept.  Kevin Taft, former Alberta Liberal leader, wrote about it in his book Oil’s Deep State.

Elizabeth May May 15, 2017 At a moment in politics when it seems positive firsts are few and far between, the news that the BC Green Party — the BC cousin of the federal Greens — will be forming its first-ever caucus in North America and in my home province was a rare blast of ...

The morning after 13 days- 3 all nighters… And the Paris Agreement is accepted. The COP21 decision is agreed. What does it all mean? I have been working on climate for the last 29 years.
