Thanks to Larry at Sandwalk, I caught this clip from the Bill Maher show in which panelists were discussing climate change and evolution.
The woman in the discussion is Kim Campbell, former Prime Minister of Canada. Some caveats, though: she wasn’t elected Prime Minister but assumed the role when she took over as leader of the Progressive Conservative Party following the departure of Brian Mulroney. Not long afterward, the PC party was decimated in a federal election and was left with only two seats in parliament. In part, this precipitated the rise of the current Conservative Party of Canada which currently has a minority government under Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
I *should* be proud of Ms. Campbell and of Canadian politics in general that a former *conservative* Prime Minister is so articulate and informed on the issues of climate change and evolution. But mostly it makes me sad that the current conservative side of Canadian political discourse seems closer to Republicans in the USA than to the previous Progressive Conservatives in Canada.
