So in a state of procrastination, I came across this article [thestar.com] by James Travers entitled "Harper trying to market alternative universe" about the Conservatives' Clean Air Act. Somewhere in there, Travers called Rona Ambrose Harper's minister of pollution.

There is a long tradition in leftist literature to disentangle ministry names from their doublespeak, such as calling the minister of defense the minister of war, but it's a rare sight to find such a literary device in a mainstream newspaper such as the Star. The title of the article is also quite striking.

I mean, the Star is almost as Liberal as the Toronto Sun is Conservative, but that's still quite impressive to see this from a newspaper that pretends to objectivity, unlike the Sun.
