More NDP Hypocrisy on Environment

Now it's well know that David Miller has his eyes on Howie Hampton's job, though I think he really wants to take Jack's. And that he LOVEs big city government and paying unions as much as possible in jobs for life without any performance measurement or sanctions.
Now his latest adventure outside of the terms of reference of city government is his Green City Plan.
Now how David Do-Good is going to separate our gases from Mississauga's gases, I don't know. But frankly, his plan sounds like Jack Layton's bid to make Toronto a Nuclear Free Zone. Anyway, I digress.

You know the NDP, doncha? Well, Davie is one and they are demanding stringent targets to reduce greenhouse gases and for them to take effect immediately to see results by 2012.

Given the NDP's strident demands for immediate action by the CPC Federal Government, shouldn't the largest NDP-run jurisdiction in Canada demand for itself what they demand from the Feds?

Well, no.
"The report doesn't list specific environmental targets, but Mayor David Miller on Thursday said he wanted to slash the city's greenhouse gas emissions by 30 per cent by 2020 and a whopping 80 per cent by 2050."
By which times, I expect David will be (a) well out of office for the first target and (b) dead for the second and likely not held accountable for making Toronto a ghost town.
