OTTAWA — Alberta Premier Alison Redford says the federal government should follow her province’s lead of introducing a carbon price on greenhouse gas emissions for large industrial emitters — as long as it improves environmental outcomes and is not a publicity stunt.
In an interview Monday with Postmedia News, Redford also said the Obama administration’s looming decision over the Keystone XL oilsands pipeline will have long-term implications on the Canada-U.S. relationship.
She also scolded federal NDP leader Tom Mulcair for spreading what she said are “mistruths” and betraying Canada’s long-term economic interests during his visit last week to the United States.

Politics and the English Language
"I mis-spoke."What the hell does that mean? I didn't know what I was talking about? I thought it was right but it wasn't? I just made it up and didn't care if it was right or not? I knew it wasn't right but said it anyway?
Here's a suggestion; let's encourage the use of "accurate" and "inaccurate."
For example: "Premier Redford was unable to say which statement of Mr. Mulcair's was inaccurate or how it was inaccurate."
