Fry’s cooked

Hard to believe it was only a week ago that Hedy Fry went on talk radio and ably discredited the first adjective of Dion’s slogan that his carbon tax is as “simple as it is powerful” (the second adjective having been declared moot by Dion himself).

Coming off this stunning performance, the Liberal MP now has something else to worry about.

The irony is that given Michael Byers’ impressive resume as a scholar and talented commentator on subjects including climate change, Fry would be better served consulting her opponent on the finer points of Dion’s carbon tax, and why it won’t work, than asking the communications people in Dion’s office.
