Is there a 3rd choice?

Can we have someone other than an American celebrity to advocate for the planet. I would like to see a debate between Robyn Allan and the Premier.

Even if I were willing to share the "correct" answer to the question, wouldn't it pretty much amount to "mansplaining"?

How about this guy

I suspect you might be fine with him. He has a lot of history speaking on this.

I suspect that this won't be the last Hollywood celebrity to visit this city which has just lost 2400 structures to tell them how they are ruining the planet. I am sure glad to see them come from LA, city renowned for its pure air quality.

Yes indeed he would be a good advocate. However I purposefully suggested Robyn because then it means there can be no mansplaining complaints clouding the real debate.

How about Melina Laboucan-Massimo?

While I disagree with Premier Notley about the tar sands, she certainly isn't the worst politician in Alberta, and it strikes me that Fonda has supported far worse Democrats. I'm very much against the tar stands, but we also have to explain and advocate for the creating of sustainable green jobs for workers in resource-based areas. (This is also true in regions where the military is a major employer).

It strikes me that there is a lot of wind energy on the Prairies?

Did you know that quinoa is produced there - shouldn't it and other higher-value crops be promoted?

Not to overlook restoring the southern VIA route.
