The Liberal Party’s Iain Rankin, the Progressive Conservative Party’s Tim Houston, and the NDP’s Gary Burrill fielded questions from Halifax’s business community over the course of 90 minutes on August 4.
… Houston and Burrill both attacked Rankin for the Liberal government’s handling of environmental protection.
Burrill said it “defies credibility” that Rankin presents himself as an environmental champion after his government gutted its own biodiversity protection bill.
Houston, meanwhile, told Rankin “you can’t really call yourself an environmentalist and do what you did at Owl’s Head,” referring to the Liberal government’s decision to sell the crown land to a developer.
