Councillor McRae, who is my councillor, has been very recalcitrant on dealing with greenhouse gas emissions in the city and as Chair of the Environment Committee she’s got real responsibilities to do something about it…

I’m really concerned about this…it matters to me, it matters to my kids, it matters to my grandchildren…

I think she needs to publicly disavow what her husband has been saying on the blog…and state clearly where she stands on greenhouse gas emissions and climate change, and if she can’t do that, I think she should resign.
