First it was Bill Nye the Science Guy campaigning for Justin Trudeau, now we have Al Gore campaigning for Kathleen Wynne and her Ontario Liberals in Toronto.
If there was any doubt that this was a campaign event and not a government of Ontario event just look at Gore’ tweet.

As if that were not enough, Wynne tweeted in a similar way and linked to her campaign style Facebook page called Wynne Fans. Doesn’t sound like a Government of Ontario site does it?
Ontario is a #climatechange leader & we simply can’t afford to go backwards. I’m about to sit down with @algore to talk about Ontario’s plan to fight climate change & the dishonesty of those who say we can cut emissions without pricing pollution. Watch now https://t.co/Uj5pMCgpav

So what are we to make of this?
Is this the new normal that American fake scientist folks like Al Gore and Bill Nye come north to campaign for their favourite left wing politicians? We have laws against foreign interference in our elections and it should stop what are blatant campaign events described as government events.
Like Nye, Gore is not a scientist though he tried to pass himself off as “sciencey” in his movie An Inconvenient Truth. Remember that movie won an Oscar, not a scientific award. In fact the film had so many errors that a British judge ruled that it could only be shown to school children if the errors were exposed and an alternative view presented.
No alternative view for Gore who famously has made a fortune off of climate change initiatives while flying around the world, using a full motorcade when he lands and living in energy sucking homes while lecturing the little guy.
