The Wildrose applauded the cancellation of the Swan Hills Synfuels funding agreement, calling it wasteful corporate welfare and urging the Conservatives axe the entire program. Shayne Saskiw called the funding for carbon capture projects “an absolute fiasco.”

“In a time of running deficits, to give out $2 billion in corporate subsidies to pump C02 into the ground with experimental technology is an absolutely dismal decision of this government,” he said.

But Redford dismissed the criticism, pointing out Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith has said publicly she doesn’t believe in climate change.

Smells of anotehr hoax to capture more USA tax dollars.
