Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault drew a dubious link between his nation’s oil and gas sector and wildfires during his visit to China, sparking even more outrage among those who already opposed his visiting the communist country.

During his visit to Communist China last week to partake in climate conferences, Guilbeault was quoted by The Canadian Press as having attacked the Canadian energy sector and linking it to wildfires.

Guilbeault said that he was “disappointed” that Suncor CEO Rich Kruger – Suncor is a Calgary based company which provides natural resources for all of Canada – held that the company should focus primarily on producing oil rather than lowering carbon emissions particularly when “tens of thousands of Canadians” were forced to flee from wildfires in July.
