Open letter to Resources Minister Scott Kent:

This is insane!

I am absolutely appalled that our government is ignoring the science of climate change. Concerns are mounting about the problems of fossil fuels, with things like the recent oil spill in English Bay, and you have now displayed irresponsible leadership by allowing for fracking in the southeast Yukon.

Who has bought and informed you? Is it the Canadian Energy Resource Institute, which is funded by the Harper government, the Alberta government and an oil industry lobby group? We have no way of knowing, since the changes your government did to the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act back in 2012.

I was in the legislature when your government degraded the law. I stood up for future generations and I was kicked out.

Do you not care for our children?! I know this is personal, but climate change is personal and it is about time you woke up or resign.

At the very least, call a territorial election.
