Interview with Hon. Richard Brown

I’ve known Hon. Richard Brown since he was a city councillor in Charlottetown in the 1990s; later on our work lives overlapped when he was working as a systems engineer in the public service and I was working with government on its website.  Today he’s both the Member of the Legislative Assembly for my district in downtown Charlottetown and the Minister of Environment, Energy and Forestry.

As part of my climate change blogging project, I sat down with Minister Brown yesterday at his office in the Jones Building for a conversation about climate change and renewable energy on Prince Edward Island.

You can watch the video of the interview, Energy and Climate Change on Prince Edward Island: Hon. Richard Brown; it’s long, and we ramble around a lot, but watch the whole thing and you’ll get a good handle on the current government’s take on climate change, renewable energy options for PEI, and how the Island is planning to work within the Atlantic region on longer-term energy projects.

Me, too. A hard-hitting interview with Wayne Easter about his “going rogue” on the issue of gun control would be good material.

Or, as any good journalist is aware, both sides of a story provides balance. Need inspiration? How about moving up a few more levels and talk to the local PC’s? I would especially look forward to the sit-down interview in front of the fireplace with Opposition Leader Olive Crane.

We already have lots of journalists that throw lazy softballs at the current government. Give us something we can “sink our teeth” into.
