The NDP used to be the champion of environmental issues. Environmentalists have even flocked to the party in past years. In B.C. however, Gordon Campbell's new Carbon Tax policy is signalling a sign of things to come for Jack Layton's federal Dippers. Environmentalists are now flocking to the side of BC's government on this issue. At the same time, they're appalled by the Dipper stance on the issue.
This will echo well for Stephane Dion on the campaign trail.
