Because "Leadership" apparently means scoring 8/50 on the Environment

In addition to showing the obvious hostility of the Conservatives to any sort of real environmental legislation or protection, the article raises the interesting point of how although voters have claimed environment is a top priority for them, the environment has played very little role in the campaign, with education being the big headline grabber. At this point even the Green Party themselves are getting more attention from voters not because of their environmental policy, but because of the stand they are taking against public funding of Catholic schools. Interesting to see what the profile of environment will be in the next federal election.

Silly me, here I was thinking leadership meant having a foreign country shout "Death to Canada". Maybe that means that Canada's back or something about our place on the world stage.
