FP:  The B.C. election’s strangest twist is that it’s pitting greens against greens. Weaver, for example, has taken shots at the B.C. NDP for being latecomers to the climate change debate, while “I’ve been involved at the very highest levels internationally of climate policy for my entire career.”
The B.C. NDP and the Alberta NDP don’t see eye to eye, either. While Horgan wants to kill the Trans Mountain expansion, the Alberta NDP needs it badly to demonstrate its climate change plan, including a carbon tax that is weighing heavily on the province’s depressed economy, is worth the pain because it will lead to pipeline approvals. Alberta Premier Rachel Notley is so mad she’s barred her staff from participating in the B.C. election.
