In a story first published on July 1st by Parisian paper "L'Express," environmental icon David Suzuki took aim at the government.
He accused the Harper Conservatives sacrificing environmental protection for the sake of saving money, and says that global warming is Canada's biggest threat.
Suzuki also took an opportunity to slam Canada's immigration system and laws, saying that a ballooning demographic and increasing immigration are causing an unsustainable strain on the demand for the country's natural resources.
Federal Immigration Minister Jason Kenney took to Twitter Wednesday night to fight back against Suzuki's extreme anti-immigration views, saying he was disappointed with his toxic and irresponsible comments.
