David McGuinty apparently believes that Conservative MPs from Alberta are insufficiently broad in the exercise of perspective.
?They are national legislators with a national responsibility, but they come across as very, very small-p provincial individuals who are jealously guarding one industrial sector, picking the fossil fuel business and the oilsands business specifically, as one that they?re going to fight to the death for,? said David McGuinty.
McGuinty?s frustrations boiled over after a Tuesday meeting of the Commons natural resources committee looking into energy sector innovation, dismissing the Tories as ?shills? for the energy sector who lack national vision.??They really should go back to Alberta and run either for municipal council in a city that?s deeply affected by the oilsands business or go run for the Alberta legislature,? he said.
