"Ya, we are really excited that the NDP has suggested this, it is something we were hoping would happen. The Clean Air Act is really a good piece of legislation, that has strong substance to it...
It is going to committee, where all the opposition will have a say and I think that's great to see because I have always believed that on the environment, this should be beyond politics, beyond partisanship, so we are really excited.
Exciting isn't it? Unfortunately Ambrose's facial experience and insincerity didn't quite match the rhetoric, she looked like someone stole her lunch. I guess you have to conclude that Ambrose really couldn't have said anything else, she must try to spin this as some victory. The Conservatives were hoping Layton would threaten to bring down the government, okay I buy that. We welcome a collaboration that allows the opposition control, sure. The alternative answer- our legislation has been a massive flop, soundly rejected by all sides and thus we are now in damage control, so we accommodated the communists to dampen the horrible optics. "Excited" sounds better.
Ambrose then went on to pontificate about Canada's reputation, and how the Conservative initiative was demonstrating to the world how serious we are on emissions. If you pick up a seashell, not only can you hear the ocean, you can faintly hear the other side of the ocean and the accompanying laughter. Ambrose almost appeared delusional in her perspective. The overriding theme of this interview, "not ready for primetime". Calling Elizabeth May.
