Conservative environmentalism? It’s real — and in Canada, it gets results

mcKay(h/t amirlach) At the Manning Networking Conference, Monte Solberg tells me that, contrary to the beliefs of liberals — and even some conservatives — the environment is a conservative issue.

Solberg says that Harper’s Conservative government has accomplished more on environmental issues than the Liberals did during their long time in power.

He also points to conservation groups like Ducks Unlimited. They may not get the same fawning media attention Greenpeace enjoys, but they actually perform the less glamourous work of preserving Canada’s wildlife and green space.

Solberg also explains how icons like Teddy Roosevelt and Russell Kirk shaped ecological thinking on the Right going back many generations:
