In a press release, the Liberal leader uses the phrase "climate chnage denier" again. Being a Holocaust denier is illegal, and for a good reason: the Holocaust was real, and denying it provides the under-pinning for anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism. Climate change is real, too, but, despite whaty Dion says, the jury is still out on whether it's completely man-made and if the Kyoto Accords offer an efficient and effective solution. People like Dion want to stifle that debate and fling mud, rather than use Parliament constructively.

For Release: Immediate
More Proof Prime Minister Harper is a Climate Change Denier
Ottawa - Prime Minister Stephen Harper's history is one of leading a
crusade against the Kyoto Accord.
The Liberal Opposition today released another salvo in what Prime
Minister Harper called the "Battle of Kyoto," which saw the then-leader of
the Canadian Alliance launch a fundraising campaign against the science
of climate change.
Attached is a copy of a speech Mr. Harper delivered to Conservatives on
November 20, 2002, denouncing the Kyoto Accord.
"As economic policy the Kyoto Accord is a disaster. As environmental
policy it is a fraud," Mr. Harper said in the speech.
Specifically, Mr. Harper expresses concerns about the impact of Kyoto
on the development of the oil sands.
The speech was part of the same campaign in which Mr. Harper issued a
fundraising letter to raise money to "block the job-killing,
economy-destroying Kyoto Accord."
