As he battled cancer, Murphy continued to file, writing about Hamas and Christmas and interviewing Pierre Poilievre with his usual panache

From his Wikipedia:

"Murphy won a Progressive Conservative nomination in 1975. However, he abandoned it due to lack of funds. Instead, Murphy went to work as special assistant to PC leader and Premier Frank Moores.[4]

He then switched parties in the 1980s and served two years as chief researcher for the provincial Liberal caucus before running for provincial office twice, as a Liberal."

Sucks to suck.

"Murphy argued that climate change is "a sub-branch of climate politics". He criticized former American Vice President Al Gore's opposition to the Alberta oil sands and in a 2013 column, called the industry "a dazzling and profitable engineering endeavor of which all Canadians should be proud"."

Rex can absolutely get fucked, what a sellout shitbag.

I didn't really understand how much people hate oil until today.

I work in oil and gas and I understand that it's detrimental to the future of our children and grand children. I don't hate oil specifically, I hate pollution and industries that purposefully drive humanity to the brink of extinction for profit.

Oil is literally the biggest polluter on the planet, you basically just said "I don't hate murders specifically, I hate killings and people that purposefully kill others"

And I would work in solar or wind if my province wasn't actively in the pocket of energy companies and purposefully dissuading renewable projects.

I feel that, a lot of the provinces worry more about money now than our future.
