Canadian MP Claims ‘Climate Emergencies’ Are Not ‘Gender Neutral’

Canadian MP Laurl Collins

During a recent environment committee meeting Liberal MP Laurel Collin became “wildly emotional” and claimed that “climate emergencies” are not “gender-neutral

The leftist pro-abortion MP of Victoria, British Columbia went on a rant during a May 23 Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development meeting. She appeared to have been triggered by a comment about “climate hysteria” by one of the meetings witnesses.

Slamming the term “climate hysteria” Collins tearfully insisted that “climate emergencies are not gender neutral” while repeatedly admitting she is “wildly emotional.”

LifeSite News reports: In the meeting, Collins started by saying, (16:16 min mark), “I guess I want to start off by addressing one of the comments that was made by the witnesses around climate hysterics … Hysteria, it refers to something that is wildly emotional. It comes from the Greek word, womb of the womb. It is used in ancient Greek to refer to things associated with women.”

“And I think I hope you’ll forgive me if I get emotional. Climate emergencies are not gender neutral. The degradation of ecosystems disproportionately impacts women and girls …This is the existential crisis of our time.”

Not done yet, Collins then said that “climate change” is the “existential crisis of our time,” saying “we’re asking for high ambition is climate hysteria that makes me wildly emotional, absolutely.”

“When I think about my womb, you know the two children that I bore from that womb and what future we are leaving them, I am wildly emotional,” she said.

Collins, who just noted that she bore two children, then said, “it’s not surprising to hear this from someone who has written articles that are pro-life.”

She said that Canadians need to “think about the intersection of gender and the climate crisis,” adding that the “people around this table and the people listening will refrain from using language like climate hysteria.”

Reaction to Collins’ outburst came swiftly on social media, with some pointing out that her comments didn’t make any sense at all.

Well-known Canadian anti-woke psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson took a shot at Collins’ rant.

“A hysteric complains hysterically about an imaginary complication of an imaginary problem: Canadians: this is the @liberal_partyunder @JustinTrudeau,” Peterson wrote on X today.

Others pointed out that gender has nothing to do with the weather.

“Man, last time I checked a tornado ain’t checking a gender before wiping it out,” commented X user Julio Murillo in reply to a video clip of Collins’ rant.

X user RightBlend said about Collins’s comments, “This is a word salad that applies 0 logic but appeals to emotional triggers.”

Another X user, Based and Biased, said about Collins’s rant, “Maybe we should ban climate emergencies.”

When it comes to so-called man caused “climate change,” which leftists have been preaching about for years, the reality is the other side of the debate has a lot of evidence to counter the left’s narrative that man alone is allegedly causing a shift in Earth’s weather patterns.

A June 2017 peer-reviewed study by two scientists and a veteran statistician confirmed that most of the recent global warming data have been “fabricated by climate scientists to make it look more frightening.”

As noted by LifeSiteNews, pro-life and family advocates have been continually warning about the climate activism movement’s alignment with pro-abortion and population control advocates and lobby groups.
