Edward Schreyer, former Governor General of Canada and current NDP candidate in Manitoba, speaks candidly about the energy crisis and his return to politics with GPM's David Room.

"This is a matter of imminent emergency and necessity, to get on with the job of putting in place wind turbines, hydroelectric turbines and biodiesel plants... ethanol too, for that matter. And all this we have to do increasingly, and we have to get on with it... we have spun our tires these past 8 years now with the Kyoto protocol. The government of Canada has apparently got some kind of self satisfation out of saying it signed on... I keep asking after a thousand and one press releases, what has actually eventuated in the building of anything- and the answer is virtually nothing. In fact we've gone from bad to worse with natural gas consumption, and depletion therefore, of natural gas and oil."
