I read an article a while back & got the impression that the Environment Minister isn't comfortable uttering the words 'climate change'.
Which is strange, because she's from the Arctic. I wonder if it's because the government is not keen on certain kinds of science.
My pal Finley does well working on the oil pipes in Alberta. He welds. The western cities are booming. I hear stories of towns awash in lonesome men with cash. He does it for his family.
I turn on my car and drive to buy things.
I go by Finley's house and wonder 'will he come back before winter?' That makes me think of Four Strong Winds.
When I listen to it, I can hear the bleakness. It gives me shivers. The tear ducts burn. It's like seeing the world from the air. Finley working on the pipes a wayyyy over there.
