Geez... you folks are screwed!

Trudeau’s foolish fake carbon-credit fixation is a betrayal of struggling Canadians | Financial Post

The federal Liberal government is determined to impose on the provinces an escalating national carbon tax that will slow growth, undermine competitiveness and degrade our standard of living, all for no discernible impact on global temperatures.

It won't have any discernible impact on global temperatures or CO2 emissions, but it will make progressives puff out their chests and feel good about themselves. And in the end, isn't that really the main point of almost all progressive policies?

global serfdom I think is the end game
a carbon tax would be the tool they need to enforce it
and a tool to make us pay for it too

IMHO
that certainly describes the useful idiots that support it, but to the leaders like al gore
its all about money and power and technological dictatorship
and having an army of useful idiots

J.S.T.

That's all it is folks. A new service tax that is worn by government to avoid looking like they're raising your taxes. The rebate checks have already started in Alberta which seems awfully close to the way they started with the GST.

Coincidence? I think not.

Gullible Canadians? Absolutely.

You're being played like a fiddle.

Thank you for pointing out the obvious.

And it was never meant to have an impact on the climate. They just wanted the money. Canada already owed BILLIONS because they weren't able to keep up with Kyoto.

I suggest a tax on Elizabeth May. She emits the most hot air and is Canada's biggest gasbag.

I cannot think of any other country where having one MP (or congressman, or other representative) from a single party, or sitting as an independent, let that person participate in a national election debate. Or get the amount of press she gets, for that matter.

Politically speaking, she's a non-event, and, from what I've seen, a whack-job. So I ignore her, consider who/what she represents and where she lives.

"Not content with that impending disaster, it now admits it will take action that can only be described as extremely foolish and ill advised ó the transfer of billions of dollars to foreigners for useless scraps of paper, euphemistically called international credits."

I've always thought Elizabeth May looked a bit like Martin Short's character...Jiminy Glick.

Justin Trudeau is a total nonentity, a complete airhead, a chip of the old blockhead Maggie.. a siv for any new age detritus that comes down the sewer.. passed through without even the pretense of a filter.

Being that the Liberal government seems utterly unable to do anything other than at a snail's pace, chances are that by the time they are ready to impose any of their carbon taxes, election time will have rolled around and we can kick the bums out of office. If by some chance, they actually impose them before then, we can put a new government in office and they will simply revoke the tax.

If Alberta has one of the better economies and 60% of the residents get a full rebate then what are the ratios for the other Provinces??

Wanna bet that apart from Parliamentary debates, Canadians will accept this without so much as a whimper?

It's funny, but Canadian ladies will get on a bus, drive out of the country and protest Trump, but will meekly sit back when the carbon tax starts ramping up. Others (not US citizens) will start online petitions demanding Trump's resignation or impeachment, tweet up a storm, whine on Facebook, and even email US Congressmen and Senators complaining about Trump.

Oh, a carbon tax? That Trudeau is so smart. He's saving the whales and stuff!

Canada has no lack of dip**** women, Murph - some of them even found their way into the PMs cabinet.
