Getting things rebranded for all of us

A screen shot of the website of the ruling party of Canada.
The "flip flop" background behind Dion is a nice touch.
But the best part is their headline : "Replacing Liberal Talk with Real Action on Climate Change".
How very true. One of the 'things Steve got done' this month was to eliminate the Climate Change Policy Directorate at Environment Canada after rebranding their initiatives as his own. The CCPD are the experts "responsible for implementing new policy, co-ordinating climate-change efforts among different government departments, and analyzing their potential impact."
CJOB : "The memo came just as the prime minister embarked on a national tour to announce a series of green initiatives that were largely prepared by the division now being dismantled."
Hey, thanks for the great green talking points for Steve's road trip, guys, but I reckon your work is all done now.
"The (policy) work now is being done by a very small handful of people under the direct supervision of (the Privy Council Office) and Prime Minister's Office."

Looks like the Tories got an "A" in the Frank Lunts class "How to Beat Your Opponents by Becoming Them - Verbally, Not Actually ".

Luntz now believes in global warming apparently. Maybe he'd like to donate some of the money he made holding up any action on combatting it to some envionmental cause.

I'm sure Sandra will certainly be more than capable of handling the issues in this portfolio on her coffee break.

I think the term apparently is an important qualifier.

A--after the entrance of Ms Penn into the race in Saanich/Isles I've done my mea culpa.
