Conservative think tank wants Harper to gut endangered species laws

Can be summarized as "because f*ck endangered species, that's why". Of course they misrepresent science in the process

Hot off the heels of calling for a rollback of “unnecessary” child labour laws, the right-wing Frontier Centre for Public Policy is now turning its attention to Canada’s endangered species laws ahead of the federal election — calling “for root and branch reform.”

”We are told that many millions of acres must be set aside for conservation purposes, and economic activity stilled,” writes Frontier Centre research fellow Elizabeth Nickson. “This has happened across Canada’s sparsely populated rural areas, especially where resource, industrial or business activity takes place.”
