POOR Hoid- he is degenerating and will soon be able to compare notes with the leaders of Tinfoil Hat Brigade led by MHz, and Torch light and Gilgamesh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When you have fellow travellers and supporters like that - YOU KNOW your thought process is in disarray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an article condemning the LIE-beral obsession with electric Toy vehicles. With some comments of my own in brackets):
Electric dreams fuel tax nightmares

“I pay a lot of taxes, so I deserve a rebate on my Tesla. I’m just getting some of my money back.”
The woman calling my Newstalk 1010 radio show was furious about the cancellation of tax rebates on electric vehicles in Ontario. She claims to have paid $200,000 in taxes last year.
(Regardless of how much the woman paid in taxes- the FACT of the matter is Ontari-owe is STONY BROKE and cannot afford basic stuff like new public transit or more desperately needed hospital beds- much less electric Toy vehicle rebates for a privileged few!)
It is easy to feel overtaxed in Canada. The Fraser Institute recently calculated the average family pays more in tax than they do for housing, food and clothing combined. That is an outrage. Paying for someone else’s car adds to that burden.
(One thing ALL Ontarians agree on is the taxes are too high! But only civil service union Hogs are looking for “alternative revenue streams” that LET THEM OFF THE TAX HOOK- and quietly seek ways to pick our pockets in unique new ways- such as persuading LIE-berals to buy electric TOYS vehicles- for Hogs!)
And in Ontario for the past decade and a half, Ontarians have seen billions of those tax dollars wasted by the Liberal government.
But the cancellation of the rebates by the PC government is an attempt to stem the bleeding at the taxpayer level.
Supporters of cancelling the rebates argue government should not choose to support one buyer over another based on political favouritism. If the EV market is to grow, let it do so by making the product attractive to customers. So far only 1.4% of automobiles in Ontario are EV cars, and that is with rebates.
(Even AFTER MASSIVE rebates, a Tesla model 3 STILL COST TWICE AS MUCH as a Nissan Qashqai! And the Tesla features- shorter range, NO trailer towing capacity, limited cargo capacity and an awkward and slow refueling system that is ALSO IN NEED OF FURTHER govt subsidies so the chargers can be installed in handy places like your home and your work place!)
(The state of Nevada ALONE - put up nearly $5 billion dollars U.S. to kick start construction of the Tesla factory in that state! Then we need to add in further huge sums from other levels of govt to get local sales under way! And Wynne-bag LIE-berals have spent millions more installing “fast chargers” around the province- most of which either do not work as promised or are out right BROKEN! The fast charger contract is YET ANOTHER LIE-beral scandal! )
The Liberals’ goal was 5% of car sales to be EVs by 2020. Global quoted Industry analyst Dennis DesRosiers saying, “the chances of meeting it aren’t low, they’re zero.”
(ONE thing we do know about electric Toy vehicles is their range is cut DRASTICALLY at temperatures below 10 Celsius- and this fact is making a lot of Cdns nervous! That nasty combination of LIE-berals forcing us to buy the Toys and the reality they wont take us where we want to go in the cold are DEAL KILLERS! What range the electric Toys will really get in Cdn winter weather that is consistently well below freezing is anybodies guess!)
Those who believe rebates are the right thing to do point to the government having bailed out auto companies in the past.
So what? Doing the wrong thing once is no reason to keep doing it. There are solid economic arguments to be made that the auto industry as a whole should be forced to stand on its own four wheels, and that it can if politicians stay out of it.
(Is it not odd that LIE-berals and their civil service union Hog allies are whining LOUDLY that corporations should be paying more taxes- all except for the electric Toy car biz which they want to shower with MORE GRAVY! It is a tribute to how much gravy LIE-berals expect to earn from their electricity price gouging scam that they would support electric Toy vehicles so strongly!)
The entitlement mentality of my radio caller is reflected in the entire EV market. Following the 2018 New York International Auto Show drivingthenation.com gave 10 reasons to buy an EV.
Seven of those reasons came down to the buyer getting favouritism (entitlements) from government. Federal and state tax rebates, hogging the HOV lane, discounts on tolls, preferred parking and rebates from electricity companies.
(In other words its ALL LIE-beral bribery- buying the votes of their ALLIES!)
The seventh was an exemption from emission testing. “If you don’t have emissions, why be tested?” Fair enough. But those sofa-sized batteries cannot be recycled forever and they will take up a lot of space in landfill sites.
(And considering how much of our electrical system is now powered by nuclear- that is NOT as clean as claimed; and by natural gas- which is cleaner than coal but IS STILL a fossil fuel; we can see that electric Toy cars are NOT ZERO EMISSION! And of course Lithium is wildy toxic and there are already LOUD complaints regarding the toxic plumes of dust blowing from sites where Lithium is mined or refined into batteries!)
(And there is also the option of being INCINERATED after a car crash! If a Lithium battery case is cracked- the Lithium will INSTANTLY burst into flames that CANNOT be extinguished by any fire extinguisher currently carried by our Fire Depts!)
Their eighth point was performance — a quieter engine with high torque. Those are customer benefits, not societal benefits, so again, government should not favour it.
(LIE-berals want to tell us HIGHER TORQUE- meaning FASTER ACCELERATION is a good thing- even in Toronto where there are talks under way about REDUCING speed limits to give pedestrians a fighting chance to get across busy streets without being maimed or killed!)
Number nine was that EVs would help reduce America’s dependence on foreign oil. If they just tried a bit harder in the U.S.A., and activists in Canada stopped being so irresponsible, they could get “ethical oil” from Canada.
(The truly easy way to clean up our environment would be to cut back on gravy for Hogs so they would fly in filthy airplanes less often! Airplanes are ROUTINELY being named as the single largest driver of air pollution and global warming! In the 9 months after the 9/11 terror attack- fully 25 percent of the world air fleet was GROUNDED and there was measurable improvement in air quality! But cutting back on Hog gravy will NEVER FLY with vote buying LIE-berals- for them it is easier to destroy our economy and our lives with vote buying SCAMS than it would be to blame Hogs for anything!)
So out of 10 reasons a supporter of EVs could muster, only one was air quality.
The Guardian reports: “Charging an electric car for 100 miles of travel could use about 30kw — roughly the same amount of energy an average U.S. home uses in just over a day.”
Factoring in manufacturing and the battery, The Guardian says experts disagree on whether the EV is as environmentally friendly as supporters claim.
(LIE-berals will immediately jump in and whine “this is why we need more mouldy green energy- while ignoring reality- that winds are calmer at night and the sun aint shining then either - meaning that since the vast majority of electric TOY cars will be charged overnight- they CANNOT use mouldy green LIE-beral power!)
The answer to my caller’s tax issue is not favouritism to her auto choice, it is efficient government. Premier Doug Ford is on the right track so far.
(ALL LIE-beral policy is failing! It is collapsing due to the poisoned nature of LIE-beral ideas and values! They want to BUY the votes of just enough special interest groups so that LIE-berals can cling to power while bankrupting ordinary Cdns to pay for the ENDLESS Hog entitlements! Hogs have decided that since LIE-berals will not pay them the pensions they feel they deserve- then an adequate substitute would be for LIE-berals to supply their privileged supporters with CHEAP electric TOY CARS!)
