Canada election: Charities warned against climate change ads


19 August 2019

Canada's Arctic is warming faster than southern Canada

Canada's election watchdog has warned environmentalists that saying climate change is real could break the law.

The issue arose because one party running in October's election denies climate change is a threat.

That has led Elections Canada to warn groups that running paid advertisements about climate change could be considered partisan activity.

Advocates called the guidance "ludicrous" and say it will dampen urgent climate discussions.

3. So they have a law that specifically protects the liars

and penalizes anyone who looks into it.

Guess all that "moving to Canada" stuff is nonsense.

4. Maybe Bernier splitting off was a conservative party ploy to jettison

white supremacists for the election.
