Rona comes out swinging.

Today in question period Environment Minister Rona Ambrose was firing back at the opposition, who had tried to pass a motion calling for her to resign, by daring them to force an election over climate change.

“I say, ‘Bring it on,’” Ambrose said Thursday in the House of Commons, responding to a question from the Bloc Quebecois. “Our government, in four months, is miles better than the 13-year Liberal record and the non-record of the Bloc.”

“This government has never rejected Kyoto. We have never pulled out of Kyoto. We are working within the Kyoto protocol,” she said before the House rose for its summer break. “What we are doing is putting a reasonable, achievable, affordable domestic plan in place that will ensure that the mess that the Liberals made out of Kyoto over the last 13 years will be addressed and we will make a success out of our made-in-Canada plan.”

I sure am going to miss this stuff as Parliament takes a break for the summer. While I may not be happy about the forced political detox, I think there will be more than a few Liberals who are very much looking forward to having some time off away the daily grind in Ottawa and their poor performance so far.

I hope they enjoy the summer because when they get back in the fall, I think things are only going to get worse for the LPC.
