Aged Canadian environmentalist David Suzuki said that Canada’s former Prime Minister Stephen Harper should be imprisoned for his “willful blindness” regarding man-made global warming, in an interview with Rolling Stone published Tuesday.
“It’s a huge thing! We’ve had 10 years of a government that was so oppressive regarding environmental issues. We had to really carefully control what we said and had to worry about literally being called ‘enemies of Canada,” Suzuki told Rolling Stone about Canada’s former conservative prime minister.
But, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Now that Suzuki recognizes current Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as a fellow liberal environmentalist — he’s more than willing to deem the anti-global warming Harper an enemy of the state.
“I really believe that people like the former Prime Minister of Canada should be thrown in jail for willful blindness,” Suzuki said about Harper’s viewpoints, adding, “If you’re the CEO of a company and you deliberately avoid or ignore information relevant to the functioning of that company, you can be thrown in jail … ”
This is not the first time Suzuki has suggested tossing Harper in the hoosegow.
