Alison Redford, the Premier of Alberta, has just returned from her Washington visit where she lobbied US politicians and administrators to approve the Keystone Pipeline. She also wrote a column for USA Today under the caption: Keystone is responsible oil sands development. In her column she stated:
“I’m proud to say Alberta applauds and shares the President’s strong desire to address climate change and we’re already taking action.”
She used “proud” in connection with Alberta’s record. Go to the on line version of her comments and see if proud is a word you would have used.
