“It’s like something out of George Orwell’s 1984.” – Lorrie Goldstein
“Canada’s Competition Bureau, an arm’s length agency funded by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s government to the tune of almost $50 million annually, investigated three organizations accused of denying mainstream climate science for over a year,”writes Lorrie Goldstein in the Toronto Sun.
The three groups in question, Friends of Science, the International Climate Science Coalition, and the Heartland Institute, were accused of “making false and misleading claims about climate change, including that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide, and that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.”
The bureau ended its 14-month probe in June without filing charges, but will re-open its investigation should it receive relevant new information from the public.
“As someone who has written extensively on climate change for a decade, my view is that all of this is madness,” says Goldstein. “We are entering into dangerous territory, a fundamental attack on free speech.”
“If we’re going to use agencies of the federal government to investigate and even prosecute ‘climate deniers’, for making ‘false and misleading claims’ then let’s damn well do the same for “climate alarmists”, who do the same thing all the time.”
“I read and hear politicians making “false and misleading claims” about climate change almost daily.”
I say “Amen” to Mr. Goldstein.
