David Suzuki noticed a press conference outside the small airport. Federal Tourism Minister Randy Boissonnault was there to announce almost $1.2 million in federal funding to bolster tourism in BC, so Suzuki walked over to listen. What the 86-year-old environmentalist heard didn’t sit well with him. …When a staffer opened the microphone to questions, Suzuki stepped up. “All this bullshit about how you’re trying to encourage the coming together to this beautiful land, what are we doing about this land?” he asked. “We’re not doing the right things to ensure tourism into the future. …What are they going to have to come here in BC if we’re not dealing with the major issues that confront us? The loss of biodiversity, old-growth forests being cut down and climate change from the use of fossil fuel.” [to access the full story a National Observer subscription may be required]
