As Donna Laframboise noted a few days ago, Canada’s aging, self-appointed, guru of greenism, David Suzuki has landed himself in hot water with some despicable and idiotic remarks he had made to a French newspaper on Canada Day (July 1).
The National Post has a weekly feature that provides imaginary snippets from the “diary” of a notable newsmaker. This week, Suzuki is the much deserved target of Tristin Hopper’s imagination. Here are some excerpts:
I was pulling the Prius out of my Quadra Island acreage when, about three kilometres down the road, I noticed a new home under construction. Sustainable local wood, roof-mounted solar panels, rainwater cisterns, but still, what the hell? If we keep building these space-hogging Johnny-come-latelies, this virgin wilderness will be a Calcutta marketplace. I mean, why don’t we just open a few mini-malls and an international airport while we’re at it? Now, admittedly, I have played my own role in the overpopulation atrocity. I do have five kids, yes, but I made sure to offset them by … um, well, let’s not get into that now.
In the bustle of daily life, it is tragedy that the plight of the world’s beetles goes unnoticed. One, the Salt Creek tiger beetle, is one of the rarest insects in North America. Another species, the American Burying Beetle, is at risk of being wiped out by pipeline developments along the Eastern Seaboard. But is it time to panic? Absolutely. […]
It’s typical of that unshaven immigrant-trader Jason Kenney to demonize my interview with a French magazine in which I said “Canada is full.” Well, with all due respect Minister, kiss my well-toned ass. Even a Tory could tell this place is packed to the gunwales. Vancouver, once a peaceful collection of First Nations fishing settlements, is now an obscene glass-and-concrete scar visible all the way from space. […]
In the immortal words of the esteemed cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead, “you’re all f—– and you deserve it.” Didn’t I tell you about the risk of flash floods and petroleum disasters in my weekly, soft-spoken environmental newsmagazine? […]
[…] For decades, I have struggled to get rural areas and working-class residents on board with green causes, but I think we’ve finally found common ground. Maybe it’s finally time to start promoting my ideas for controlling vehicle emissions by liberalizing euthanasia.
And, as a bonus for today … SunNewsNetwork‘s Ezra Levant was, I believe, the first to bring this latest Suzuki stupidity to light circa July 2 – in conjunction with a story on Obama’s recent declaration in S. Africa to the effect that if the world continues on its current path “the planet will boil over”. Yes, he really did say this!
Ezra Levant challenges David Suzuki’s hypocritical call for population control and Obama’s lecturing of Africans
I wouldn’t be surprised to learn at some point in the distant future that Suzuki and Obama are citing Stephen Emmott’s “hamuscript” as the source of their inanities and hypocritical exhortations!
