I am not following closely, but the basic news I get is that the government is stripping away environmental protections and making it easier for foreign nations to buy up our resources. And shutting down environmental monitoring / research that would help show how this is a bad thing.
So, explain it to me like I am five... he is Canadian too, and he has family here, won't they also lose when they live in a polluted and impoverished ecosystem? What is in it for him and his cronies? Who wins from doing this? Is there a shadowy cabal of super rich elites that will somehow benefit from the Canadian environment being degraded and our resources sold off?
