Federal Environment Minister Jim Prentice has announced he is leaving politics to join the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.
It's a funny thing about the environment, it gets to you when you learn about it and spend time in it. Mr. Prentice would have read things and spoken to scientists and people. Walked in the forest, and stood by lake and stream. And then turned down proposed mines.
Or maybe the other members of his party got up his nose a little much.
Of course, none of this would have pleased the pasty Minion of the Tailings Pond at 24 Sussex.
