In trying to promote the City’s greenhouse gas roundtable I’ve been talking to people. One of these people pointed me to the blog of Paul McRae husband of City of Ottawa Environment Committee Chair Councillor Maria McRae.
Admittedly the views expressed there are several years old and represent the views of Paul McRae, not necessarily Maria McRae.
Still, one would like to think that the elected official in charge of environmental issues for the City of Ottawa would be opposed to such a position.
Further, it raises questions in one’s mind: if Councillor McRae did believe global warming was a hoax, would she allow that view to influence her management of climate change initiatives under her authority? Could there be any connection between her potentially holding such a view and the difficulty that the public has had in engaging her on constructive solutions?
