For the second time this month, Environment Minister Rona Ambrose has cancelled an appearance at a parliamentary committee on global warming, leaving critics to suggest the government is in disarray on the issue.
Ambrose was to appear before the House of Commons environment committee today to discuss an opposition bill that would force Ottawa to meet its commitments under the Kyoto protocol.
Bob Klager, a spokesman for Ambrose, blamed the last-minute cancellation on a scheduling conflict but wouldn't say what commitment had taken precedence...
"I would think that Mrs. Ambrose would not want to be questioned in any format where the audience is well informed and people get a chance to ask more than one question," said Bennett.
This would be funny, if it wasn't so sad. Clearly, accountability and competence is on full display.
