P.S. I come from Quebec and know what real winter is. My daughter was a newborn when that famous "call out the army" snowfall happened and we have a picture of me holding her in my arms in front of the snowbank running across our yard that was a foot over my 6'-4" head. Yes, Lastman over-reacted and made a fool of himself but that was a real, honest-to-goodhess snowfall of Canadian proportions.

I see on CP24 that you got your wish for snow, albeit just a little...Enjoy!
I hesitate to wish you more of the white shit! my daughter lives in Mississauga!
I hope she switched to snow tires.........

We are a skiiing family, although I have personally pretty much given it up, due to injury. My kids are happy, happy. They've been skiing on the man-made stuff and it just ain't the same.

Why is there no news about a power outage at the same time and all the people burning gunpowder just to stay warm and well fed.

Yup.

Caledon is (small but) nice but it is a private club. The quality skiiing around here is laughable by Western or even Quebec standards. You use whatever slope you can but in this part of the world, almost every one of them is down the sides of the Niagara escarpment somewhere.

I know the area pretty well Having camped in Tottenham park every June for twelve+ years,
I had a sister that had a small house in Bolton, and a nephew, her son, had a big one in nearby Pallgrave

. I've seen plenty of golf clubs in the area but never noticed any ski lifts.
I see you got some cold weather in T.O. this morning, maybe you'll get the snow you want and it won't melt right away.....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Poor MHz is more muddled than usual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


Apparently he does not understand that one cannot put snow "UP" once it has fallen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


Nor do some Cdns understand that Toronto Mayor Latsman had to call in the army to use their vehicles to haul ambulances and fire trucks through snow clogged roads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Toronto snow clearing facilities are geared to doing SOME snow clearing- but they traditionally ASSUME that much of it WILL MELT in the near future!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


The Toronto weather pattern is CLEAR- bitter cold with snow on Saturday and PLUS 4 Celsius on Tuesday with potential rain in forecast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Toronto COUNTS on snow melt throughout the winter to reduce the amount of snow clearing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Three big storms back to back with NO snow melting means bring in the army!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Aint that SIMPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

Carbon tax will plunge Canada into recession: Ford


No no all studies show that it won't trigger a recession, more money should be thrown into alternative industries to put more people to work to pull us through. Lol

True enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cdns are DISGUSTED by what passes for action on climate by LIE-beral standards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It has become painfully CLEAR in every jurisdiction that has a carbon tax - that the LIE-beral carbon crap and trade tax SCAM only cleans cash from wallets and leaves the DIRT IN THE AIR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The ONLY REASON LIE-beral Ottawa is not seeing its own version of the French Yellow Vest Movement is because Ottawa is TOO FAR AWAY for most Cdns to get to!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thus far LIE-berals are being sheltered by geography from the consequences of their FAILED PLANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is the part they ignore. I've brought up California who does the same exact thing. There are oil wells all over the city of Los Angeles. For real!

That debate about where oil comes from is a non starter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


When Pierre Trudeau launched his National Energy Policy in the first LIE-beral attack on the Cdn oil patch- Canada was producing about 4 million barrels of oil per day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And we were using about 3.5 million barrels of oil per day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Then- as now- Cdn oil was not shipped east of Kenora!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ontari-owe has 40 percent of the cdn population- and Quebec has 25 percent more- then add in the Maritime provinces- so you had 75- 80 percent of Canada operating on oil from Venezuela!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Once the Newfoundland off shore oil fields came into operation- the amount of Venezuelan oil purchased for eastern Canada dropped- but IT DOES CONTINUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


And BOTH United States and Venezuela have TAR SAND OPERATIONS OF THEIR OWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cdns recognize that LIE-beral climate change policy is utter BULLSH+T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


The LIE-beral carbon crap and trade scam cleans cash from wallets and leaves the dirt in the air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And what do LIE-berals USE that carbon scam gravy for???????????????????


They pay it out to civil service union Hogs so they can maintain or even expand their already HUGE carbon foot print!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here is a riddle that LIE-berals cannot answer:


Which is WORSE for the environment:


A waitress who burns 50 litres of gas per month driving her car to work because she does not feel safe late at night on public transit after her shift ends thanks to LIE-beral hug a thug judges?????????????


Or the over paid civil service union Hog who burns 2000 litres of gas in a WEEK fueling and running his big ass motor cruiser that is so large his teen age kids can SURF on the waves the boat throws up??????????????????


Which is TRULY MORE HARMFUL??????????????????????????????

Third largest producer. Not sure about the tar sands. There are oil rigs all over LA but they cover them up and paint them colorfully to hide their hypocrisy.

Western oil is shipped all the way to Montreal and it is Oilsand oil Syncrude oil to be exact through Line 9 to their refinery in Montreal. Line 9 was first built for PET for the NEP and Petro Can. reversed when PET got pissed with the West and imported from the ME "cheaper oil" and then reversed again in the last couple of years for Syncrude.

It's about zero, actually and our fuel arrives by supertanker from Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Iran, U.K. (not kidding) and anywhere else that can float a boat but NOT from Western Canada. Our natural gas comes mostly from there but not our petroleum.

As I have said- that whole "where does the oil come from" debate is a NON STARTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!


When you are part of a GLOBAL NETWORK then WHO CAN SAY exactly WHERE the gas in your tank came from on any given day!!!!!


It all depends on sales levels as the trucks loaded with gas head from the few refineries to where gas sales rates are highest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And the not so secret FACT that LIE-berals want to hide is that NOBODY CARES where the oil comes from because oil is such an INTEGRAL PART of life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Oil from Alberta IS ALREADY BEING SHIPPED to refineries in Louisiana !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!


It SOUNDS like a stupid idea- ship oil from Alberta all the way to Louisiana/Gulf coast to HUGE refineries there and then ship most of it BACK NORTH to Nevada or Idaho or Alberta.........................and why not refine it closer to the market where it will be sold????????



Apparently it is that whole "economies of scale" thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The bigger the refinery, the lower the operating cost!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Even allowing for the cost of pipelines!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


Is there such a thing as "ethical oil"???????????????????????????????????


SURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


Ethical oil is produced in Canada !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Canada has the tightest anti pollution regulations going!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Canada DOES NOT have the political troubles dogging Saudi Arabia or Iran or Iraq!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !


And we do not have the madly corrupt socialism of Venezuela!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And we do not have the desire to bully and intimidate the world using oil and natural gas revenue to buy weapons as Russia does!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cdn oil IS THE CLEANEST OUT THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!


And oh yes- I know some dizzy doorknobs like Cliffy while whine "what about Cdn native protestors"????????????????????????


And I say: "yes??????????



What about them???????????????????????????????


If a modest MINORITY of Cdn natives pulled their SH+T in Venezuela they would be deliberately STARVED OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The Venezuelan army is not getting paid and they STEAL the food they are supposed to be handing out to starving peasants!!!!!!!!!!!!


If Cdn protestors pulled their sh+t in Russdia, Putin would have them SHOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Same deal in Saudia Arabia or Iran- black mailing loudmouth protesters GET SHOT in most countries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But in Canada a few loudmouth malcontents are allowed to hold up national projects, defy the majority votes in their own tribal groups, contribute to the bankruptcy of Alberta by shutting down major components of its economy and yet they still get taken seriously by Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-berals as they scramble to BUY VOTES at any price so they can cling to power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is what I'm talking about you don't know how much Western oil is shipped your way Irving is the only refinery that doesn't get western oil thanks to Quebec. Which ironically claims no oil will be shipped through their province when Line 9 has been shipping both in and out of the province since the late 70's

Guess where Quebec gets its oil

Quebec refinerys have been using Canada West oil but charging for Brent to the consumer

That little terminal in Sarnia is an Enbridge facility full of Western oil for refining in Ont.

Hey Moose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Isnt it comforting to know that Our idiot Boy Justin has ONLY the power to WOUND the Alberta oil patch BUT CANNOT SHUT IT FULLY OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Much of Canada and a big chunk of United States would savagely attack LIE-berals if the oil plug was pulled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


it is just too bad that LIE-berals are making such a COLOSSAL Mess before they get shoved off the political stage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And how is it that LIE-berals think they can get away with condemning Cdns who drive a car to work- and then hop into their SUV and go roaring off to their recreational property and relax by zooming around on their skidoos or seadoos?????????????????????

Oh petros!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You aint paying attention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!



Our LIE-beral govt wants us all to buy energy efficient windows that wear out regularly and need regular replacement at considerable COST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!




And LIE-berals DO NOT want us paying under the table for the costly glass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is for this reason that Wynne-bag LIE-berals offered up tax breaks for people who were upgrading home insulation and windows!!!!!!!


If you shop around and deal carefully you can get your windows mostly free of taxes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Which is WHY LIE-berals decided to offer that tax break- the ONLY WAY to get the tax break is NOT to pay cash under the table- but instead to go ahead and pay FULL PRICE INCLUDING HST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And of course this leaves a PAPER TRAIL so LIE-berals can track people who are working under the table and avoiding income tax, workman`s compensation bills, unemployment insurance deductions and health levy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals define a "green job' as one where ALL TAXES ARE paid to govt satisfaction and the workers are willing to SELL their votes to LIE-berals in exchange for subsidies, regular work and better wages!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Some clever guy- might have been Herbert Malthus- observed AND PROVED that once taxes rose beyond a certain point- the amount of tax money available actually DECREASES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!


For the very simple reason that when taxes are low- then there is little incentive to CHEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But when taxes are High then there is PROFIT IN CHEATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


Stupid LIE-berals dont care about this crap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And who cheats???????????????????????????

Anybody who thinks the odds of getting caught are LESS COSTLY than CHEATING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And how much cheating is there??????????????????????????


Govt believes that OVER EIGHTY PERCENT OF ALL HOME IMPROVEMENTS ARE DONE UNDER THE TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


My lady pal bought a chesterfield a few years back from a Toronto supplier and it was made UNDER THE TABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Workers at a unionized construction company that I have contact with ROUTINELY WORK SATURDAYS FOR CASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Italy is a world leader in under the table deals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!


Twenty years ago National Geographic magazine claimed that over EIGHTY PERCENT of the entire Italian economy operates beyond the reach or regulation of the tax man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is for this reason that Italian govt HAS BANNED CASH PURCHASES over a certain size!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


There are other green jobs out there beyond making windows- such as making solar panels and wind generators- which is why LIE-berals screamed so loudly hen Ford canned the LIE-beral carbon crap and trade tax!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals spent a LOT OF MONEY setting up those green jobs and buying the votes and Ford has WRECKED their efforts!!!!!!!!!



LIE-beral subsidies- paid for by carbon crap - were going to BUY THE VOTES of people making mouldy green equipment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And of course it was other LIE-berals and union Hogs who own those grossly costly wind and solar farms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And other union Hogs got paid to build the plants that make the windows and the mouldy green gear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And other union Hogs got paid to INSTALL AND MAINTAIN the mouldy green gear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


GREEN JOBS PAY BETTER since it is all govt work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But Ford has killed that grand green mess by disposing of the carbon crap and trade scam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

None however a pipeline with a capacity of up to 74,000 barrels/day links in West of Hamilton and runs down to Buffalo NY

Main junction for Enbridge to ship Oil South or North East is at Superior Wisconsin Terminal

Federal carbon tax to add 13 per cent to annual Manitoba natural gas bill

Quote:

Manitobans should get ready to pay more for natural gas once the federal carbon tax kicks in April 1.
The average consumer is expected to pay an extra $88 a year for 2019, according to Manitoba Hydro.
That is about a 13 per cent increase. Bigger consumers of natural gas can expect a 15 to 30 per cent increase annually.
The federal carbon tax puts a price of $20 on each tonne of greenhouse gas created by burning fossil fuels. It will increase $10-a-year until it reaches $50 in 2022.
Prices will continue to increase annually over the coming years.
The average consumer is expected to pay an extra $220 a year by 2022.
According to Manitoba Hydro, residents will pay about $823 annually for natural gas by 2022.
You can calculate how much your natural gas bill will be once the carbon tax is included by clicking here .
