A while ago I blogged on the embarrassment of an environmental package unveiled by Harper's conservative government.
In the piece, I mentioned how easy it was to please the mass public through simple, but popular environmental projects. From what I've read of late, the government has finally got the idea. A few hundred million here, a few hundred million there, bang, the public is happy, the media is happy, and your environmental image has shot through the roof.
I may still not like Harper for a few terrible stances - namely the Lebanon conflict and the Emerson defection, but at least he hasn't done anything to really irritate me in the last few months.
