LONDON, Ont. _ American politician Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says the U.S. has spent decades lost on a dark path that Canadians are in danger of following.
But he told an audience in London, Ont., Wednesday there’s hope for both countries if they end their reliance on information and energy from the large corporations threatening to take power from government.
Kennedy spoke at the University of Western Ontario three days after far-right pundit Ann Coulter spoke there as well.
He drew applause when he said “Ann Coulter really represents the darkest side of American character.”
Kennedy said Coulter and others in the far right don’t understand that without government, the country would be run by “unrestrained corporate power.”
That corporate power, he said, has made a mess of the economy and environment by converting natural resource into cash as quickly as possible. (London Free Press)
