This all sounds a bit like Revenge
Paul Manly said the NDP’s proposal to retrofit all homes in Canada by 2050 so they are more energy-efficient isn’t ambitious enough—the Greens would do it over five to 10 years.
He accused the NDP of “abandoning” its principles by voting to support Canada’s deployment to war in Libya in 2011, and for backing a trade deal with South Korea that includes an investor-state provision that many on the left oppose. He also slammed NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh for expressing support for the $40-billion LNG Canada terminal in B.C., a facility that will be fuelled by the Coastal GasLink pipeline opposed by Indigenous nations, and will export natural gas that is extracted by the controversial “fracking” process.
“This was a wedge issue for us in the election,” said Manly. “The NDP, depending on where they are, are either supporting oilsands expansion or fracked gas.”
