Walmart to go 100 percent renewable … in Canada:

As the world's biggest, union-bustingest retailer, gigantic sack of Chinese lead paint chips Walmart has the opportunity to push more money at sustainability than pretty much anybody else on the planet. Which is why the company, like IKEA before it , is committing to getting 100 percent of its power from renewable sources! But only in Canada . It's like they're trying to rub it in, those Canadians. Their debt load is manageable, their healthcare's still free, and hey, even their most bloated big-box retailer is a paragon of sustainable progressivism! Next thing you know they'll be taunting us from the ramparts of the giant border wall they'll have to put up to keep out all the American climate refugees. At least they still have to deal with Stephen Harper.
