Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says remarks by environmentalist David Suzuki equating the oil industry to slavery are absurd. Suzuki was responding to Wall's position that Canada needs to consider the economy when talking about reducing greenhouse gas emissions. He said in an interview that people in the southern Unites States argued in the 19th century that to eliminate slavery would destroy their economy. Wall says that's not fair. (Wall says people want politicians to take action on climate change, but to remember that the economy and jobs also need to be considered.)
