Re: “Planet’s future off the radar,” April 12

  The reprinted editorial from Burnaby Now asks us to remember the last election when something called “climate change actually came up as a topic of interest?”

  The latest Nanos poll shows only six per cent of Canadians say they are concerned about environment, but that only 3.4 per cent of Canadians intend to vote Green.

  It is indeed odd that the environment is not a hot topic in the campaign right now that Fukushima is on a scale of real danger equal to Chernobyl.

  The German utilities companies have just announced a planned nuclear phase-out, and the German Greens now enjoy more power since a recent election in which they outlined their nuclear phase-out plans for Germany.

  As long as Elizabeth May and the Canadian Greens ignore the lessons of Fukushima, continue talking about so-called climate change when the real pressing danger facing the the whole planet is clearly the nuclear emergency, they will remain in single-digit territory.

  What are the Canadian federal political parties’ plans for a nuclear phase-out and a nuclear-free Canada?

  That is the real environmental issue that is missing in this campaign.
