Canadians are concerned about climate change

HOWEVER, in the world of politics, denial of the effectiveness of climate change solutions by those who are in elected positions seems to have morphed. An article in the Globe and Mail by Merran Smith and Dan Woynillowicz discusses the new methodology of climate change denial in the political arena.

Denial is not an option, and authentic political leaders understand that. What is needed is a congruence of words and actions in democratic countries, including Canada.
