Crowley: Liberals ignored science-based evidence, too

The point he makes is true, and should not be forgotten. But he sets up a straw man in order to suggest that those protesting the Harper Government are short-sighted and one-sided. And that is not true.

But the outrage that is attached in opposition circles to this alleged misbehaviour is out of all proportion to the crime. Politicians will never stop being politicians. Moreover the outrage implies that the Tories are uniquely guilty of this offence and that a change of government would somehow usher in an era of enlightened policymaking sagely guided by disinterested scientific experts.
