Sounds like a lot of "worth" to me.

They create no worth or value. All they do is recycle money that has already been earned and taxed. All that money could be spent elsewhere in the system and the ships would not be missed.

HEY taxslave!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!


By your reasoning here is what we ordinary people NEED TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Go to the recreational properties of civil service union Hogs and burn them down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And sink all the Seadoos and atv`s in the nearest lake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Slash Hog pay and pensions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all- a big chunk of that Hog gravy could be taken away from them and there would still be enough gravy for them to survive on and let them spend OUR CASH "elsewhere in the system"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hogs are just recycling OUR money that has been taxed from us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And what the Hogs charge us is way beyond their value!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And we should dig up and REFOREST ALL THE GOLF COURSES AS WELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all, if you want to take a LAZY man style walk you can do it in the park cheaper than a golf course!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Some honest sorting out of NEEDS versus values is required!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is an article exposing LIE-beral and Muslim hypocrisy! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Free speech is only for those anti-Israel activists deem worthy

By Sue-Ann Levy, Toronto Sun

First posted: Wednesday, August 17, 2016 10:26 PM EDT | Updated: Wednesday, August 17, 2016 10:32 PM EDT

Peel teacher suspended for alleged support of terror groups

TORONTO - A gaggle of anti-Israel activists turned up at Queen’s Park Wednesday to defend the free speech rights of a Mississauga Catholic teacher suspended following her controversial comments at a recent Al-Quds Day rally.

The panel — consisting mostly of retired professors — claimed repeatedly that Nadia Shoufani is “under attack” and being silenced for exercising her right to freedom of expression about the Israeli “terrorists” who are forcing Palestinians to live “under brutal military occupation.”

“We are here to protest a campaign aimed at sanctioning and silencing her for having spoken on behalf of the rights of Palestinians who are living under brutal military occupation,” said Michael Keefer, professor emeritus of English at the University of Guelph, who admitted to never once visiting Israel or the West Bank.

But when I dared suggest their repeated anti-Israel comments were hateful, my right to free speech was attacked, jeered and treated with insults.

Shoufani, an elementary teacher at St. Catherine of Siena separate school, was recently suspended without pay pending an investigation following her keynote appearance July 2 at what Jewish advocacy groups commonly consider an anti-Israel hate rally.

(Oh that`s nice! OUR inclusive and tolerant society now thinks it is right to hire Mulsims to teach at Catholic schools! But would LIE-berals FORCE a Muslim school to hire a Catholic???????????? OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(And here we have the Catholic school being attacked for expecting its teachers to steer clear of events promoting Hate Speech against Jews! With LIE-berals promoting a double standard on hate!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

In her 10-minute speech, posted on YouTube, Shoufani urges attendees — many carrying placards calling for a boycott of Israel and with a Jewish star crossed out — to “resist the occupation” of Palestine and to “support the resistance in any form imaginable.” She also expresses “glory to the martyrs” — one of whom, a member of the Palestine Liberation Front (a known terrorist organization), smashed the head of a four-year-old Israeli girl on beach rocks.

Shoufani did not attend Wednesday’s QP event. We were informed the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association, which is defending her, has told her not to speak publicly.

(It is indicative of the LIE-beral bigotry that has set in that a public sector civil service union would be involved in defending radical statements made by a union Hog member on her own time! There are lots of teachers in the world so why should a Catholic school be forced to accept a radical Muslim who considers Catholic values to be INFERIOR to Muslim values?????????)

Graham MacQueen, a professor emeritus at McMaster University, said Shoufani was correct to call on the rally attendees to resist.

“Does the (Dufferin-Peel Catholic) school board intend to investigate its teachers to see if any of them has publicly supported (Menachem) Begin, (Yitzak) Shamir, (Ariel) Sharon, (Ehud) Barak or any of the well-known terrorists Israelis have elected as prime ministers?” MacQueen asked.

(There is claSsic LIE-beral bigotry! Israelis HAVE NOT SWORN TO DRIVE MUSLIMS INTO THE SEA! Israelis seek only SOME WAY to exist without constant war- and Muslims WILL NOT LET THEM! Cdn LIE-beral hypocrisy and shameless buying of Muslim votes is so strong that LIE-berals have been sending aid to terror group Hamas!!!!)

When I asked whether espousing hate (and their efforts to enable that hate) was the kind of example we want teachers in our school system to set, Keefer called me “disgraceful” for accusing the panel of being disseminators of hatred and that I was both “insulting” and “grotesquely false.”

When I asked them if they comment equally about the atrocities of ISIS in the Mideast and elsewhere, Keefer told me I have the “perfect right to defend the indefensible” but that I don’t have an “unlimited right to be insulting and disseminate falsehoods.”

When I repeatedly asked the panel whether they consider Shoufani a good role model for students, MacQueen said my statement about Shoufani being a disseminator of hatred is “defamatory” (not that I said that).

B’nai Brith CEO Michael Mostyn said it’s “quite ironic” that the individuals who were preaching freedom of speech to defend Shoufani tried to “shut down” a reporter who asked them hard-hitting questions.

Whether Shoufani actually gives her “vile opinions” in the classroom is not relevant since in the age of social media, any student can “pull up her YouTube video” or her Facebook page and listen or see her “espouse her support for terrorism,” he said.

(In other words IT IS LIKELY Shoufani has been spouting off in class-and shutting down dissenting students!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Jordan Kerbal, deputy director of communications for the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA), said by referring the issue to the College of Teachers, the Dufferin-Peel Catholic school board has recognized that what Shoufani said is “deeply troubling and concerning” and there should be no place for this kind of language in a classroom.

(Exactly!!! We have fired teachers for being Holocaust deniers so why not also go after racist Muslim teachers as well??????)

Calling on people to support the resistance in “any form possible” (implying violence) is “deplorable” and “very worrying,” he added.

(And then the HYPOCRITES stand silent while Hamas and others plot attacks on Israel- but they shout loudly when Israel defends itself from those attacks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Cdn Catholic schools were not created as platforms for spreading Muslim and LIE-beral BIGOTRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Richmond may be next city to declare climate emergency

Quote:

Climate emergency declarations have been passed in Halifax, London, L.A. and Vancouver.
Now, the City of Richmond may be following suit.
Coun. Michael Wolfe will present a motion at Monday's council meeting to have the city declare a climate emergency. He said it's an urgent task in Richmond, which will be one of the first to experience the long-term effects of rising sea levels.
"We're getting to a far more extreme scenario with droughts, wildfires, weather extremes," said Wolfe.
"The shifting of where water is coming down is going to be very impactful for a city like Richmond, where we're at sea level and we're right next to the ocean."

He said Richmond's elevation — or lack thereof — makes it vulnerable to climate catastrophes like tsunamis, liquefaction, flooding and saltwater intrusion into farmland.
Wolfe said that while he has support, he doesn't expect the motion to pass unanimously because some councillors feel the city is doing enough right now.
"There's been incremental movement but not, in my mind, to the level that it needs to be. We have inherited the problems from our previous generations, and I think there are obvious hints that things are not normal anymore and things have definitely tipped," he said.

If the motion is passed, it will direct city staff to find out how Richmond can achieve net-zero waste and food self-sufficiency.
"Also, to have a whole city goal of going net zero in carbon emissions," Wolfe said.
"That's a lofty goal, but if there's any incremental movement towards that we can do, then I think that's the right direction when you're faced with a climate emergency."
Wolfe said climate change is an issue close to his heart, and while Richmond has taken some steps to combat the issue, he wants to see things moving faster.

An astronaut??????????????????????????????????


HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Really Ron- that is weirdly unique!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


But IT DOES NOT ADDRESS THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


That if you walk like a LIE-beral....................


Talk like a LIE-beral.........................


Slag any view that does not support LIE-berals.........................


And REEK of selfish LIE-beral entitlements................................


And bathe regularly in great gobs of gravy showered on you by LIE-berals............................



THEN YOU ARE A LIE-BERAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Lack of a paid up party membership card DOES NOT DISQUALIFY YOU FROM WEARING THE LIE-BERAL LABEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


An is it not an INSULT to our intelligence that every time the weather turns sour and Toronto public transit grinds to a halt- Metrolinx pours oil on troubled waters- using the same old TIRED EXCUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Metrolinx whines- "there is lots of snow blocking our switches- as idf they had never seen snow before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Metrolinx whines- its has gotten very cold and our equipments cannot handle it because it is all OLD"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the equipments is ONLY ONE YEAR OLDER than it was last year when they offered up the SAME EXCUSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And WHY is the equipment so old and frail?????????????????????


Because Metrolinx prefers to spend OUR CASH on gravy for Hogs instead of keeping public transit in reliable order!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is the price we pay for letting LIE-berals BUY civil service union Hog votes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


That unholy alliance of Hogs and LIE-berals is driving UP the price of everything and letting quality and reliability GO TO HELL!!!!!!!!!!!



Here is another article on the outrageous behaviour of Metrolinx and the efforts of LIE-beral transport minister Del Duca to bury the problem-along with some comments of my own in brackets):

Metrolinx stumbles from crisis to crisis. First posted: Tuesday, August 02, 2016 10:39 PM EDT | Updated: Tuesday, August 02, 2016 10:49 PM EDT

The good news is, or rather was, that Ontario Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca was finally driven by repeated Metrolinx screw-ups to order a review of the province’s disaster-prone regional transportation agency.

The bad news is Metrolinx Chair Rob Prichard got in a snit about it and told the Metrolinx board he got Del Duca to substantially “soften” and limit “the breadth” of that review.

(Great-the Metrolinx HOGS are telling the guys that sign their pay cheques to mind their own business and not snoop into their wild spending habit!)

That letter having gotten out courtesy of the Toronto Sun’s Shawn Jeffords, spokesmen for Del Duca and Prichard now say everything’s proceeding swimmingly with the review which is supposed to be out in the fall.

In other words, instead of kicking down doors and taking names, which is what is clearly needed to right the listing Metrolinx ship, it sounds like this review will be little more than a whitewash of this “arm’s length” government agency as it stumbles from disaster to disaster.

Metrolinx ignored seven — SEVEN! — of its own detailed reports telling it the $27.50 one-way fare it was planning to charge for the Union-to-Pearson Express was too high to attract riders.

Metrolinx charged it anyway and riders stayed away in droves, until it finally lowered the fare to $12.

Then there was Metrolinx’s bizarre, costly and unnecessary promotion of new uniforms for UP staff.

Plus its pointless cross-promotion deals with everything from the Toronto International Film Festival to a Toronto, Buffalo Bills football game, which always seemed to end with Metrolinx staff being showered with goodies.

(I say Del Duca won’t want to admit it but Metrolinx Hogs are simply behaving like LIE-berals! All Hogs think they are ENTITLED-just like little kids in a candy store whose parents have told them they can have anything they want! Because they are SPECIAL! And LIE-beral!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Ontario’s Liberal government created Metrolinx to take the heat off itself on major transit decisions — then overruled it anyway, when, for example, the Liberals decided they needed to back a Scarborough subway, instead of an LRT, to get a Liberal candidate elected in a Scarborough byelection..

(And now that a LIE-beral represents Scarborough, WILL there be a subway? Gosh NO! What is wrong with Ontari-owe citizens that any of them continue to BELIEVE LIE-berals-in SPITE of the roughly THREE HUNDRED BILLION DOLLARS in outstanding pension IOU`s that LIE-berals have offered up but cannot pay for!)

Then auditor general Jim McCarter blasted Metrolinx in 2012 for letting the budget for its “Presto” pass almost triple to $700 million.

(Hey-if EXCESS is good for ORNGE and E-health its certainly good enough for Metrolinx! Or is it? And PRESTO is now proven to be what its critics called it: the most costly and least reliable of several systems available!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

On Tuesday, Metrolinx awarded a $428 million contract to build double-decker Go Trains to Bombardier, even though the company is behind schedule on a $1 billion streetcar order with Toronto and a previous $770 million contract with Metrolinx for LRTs.

(And of course now 59 of the new street cars are being SENT BACK to Bombardier for remedial work on BAD FRAME WELDS!!With an additional 6 more of the new cars needing repairs after being driven into and stranded in rising flood waters during thunder storms!!!!!!)

(And this brings us to the issue of neglected city drainage systems!! Are the storms really getting that much worse or is the entire Toronto sewer system simply getting clogged with sediment and garbage? Or should we assume the drainage system is simply overloaded since most of it was built 100 years ago- with no expansion to deal with the growing city? Maybe global warming is a HANDY LIE-beral EXCUSE for LIE-beral neglect of infrastructure?)

(IN my suburb there is a street where people had flooded basements- full of raw sewage 3 times in 5 years- RIGHT AFTER several new subdivisions were built UP STREAM from the old neighbourhood! And the govt got tired of listening to voters whining and built several rain water retention ponds- and problem solved!!)

Maybe it’s time to put Metrolinx out of its — and our — misery.

(Oh-I would say its WAY PAST TIME! Metrolinx was created to get things done-and NOTHING is being done. The only thing being built is Eglinton LRT-and its being done because of former Toronto mayor Rob Ford-who recognized that the city had money for one thing - they could have either Hog gravy OR they could have money for LRT-BUT NOT BOTH-so Ford cut the gravy!)

(Metrolinx was supposed to make transit choices-and they have been over ruled on Scarborough subway by LIE-berals.)

( They were supposed to ensure transit jobs such as UP line were done on time and on budget-ANOTHER FAIL! )

(And what of the MESS on Queens Quay? Over time and over budget-with a BADLY designed intersection that causes all manner of trouble for drivers!)

But Mertrolinx HAS provided a GRAND series of COSTLY studies on Toronto transit options as requested-but since the city and province are BROKE-nothing will be built. And we don’t need more plans-we need cash money and shovels in the ground and Metrolinx ain’t needed for that! Kick those Hogs out of OUR trough!)

(And in the latest insult to tax payers, Jackass John Tory has hired a “transit czar” to cut red tape and bureaucracy with “laser like focus”!!!!!!!!! Yes the new czar will have an annual salary of over $200 grand per year and a staff of 15 people!!!!

Though what they will be doing all day to actually EARN THEIR GRAVY is a MYSTERY! Jackass John seems to think the major obstacle to building more transit is that other levels of govt are too STINGY to shower him with cash!!!!!!!!

Apparently "declare climate emergency" is a LIE-beral euphemism for "help we are BROKE so send more money from Ottawa or we wont vote for you"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think we should look at and compare the Toronto "climate emergency" and ask if Richmond is not in a similar stupid fix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



For over HALF A CENTURY Toronto has IGNORED its aging sewer and storm water systems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yes- Toronto has WASTED HUGE sums on stupid crap like CLOACA- which used to be displayed at the Toronto Waterfront!!!!!!!!!!!!!


it was a giant 50ft long FULLY FUNCTIONAL mechanical version of a human digestive system!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The "artists" who created it actually fed it restaurant food scraps that CLOACA would digest and then EXCRETE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And the operation of Cloaca was SO REAL that one night when the roof leaked and shorted out some of its electrical operating gear- it developed a BAD CASE OF Diarrhea and actually shit all over the display area!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Modern art is a MESSY BIZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And of course as the city grows and paves over ever larger areas- so to does the rain water run off INCREASE- to the point it is now flooding roads and buildings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Toronto is STONY BROKE so they have declared a "climate emergency" in hope of getting MORE GRAVY from other levels of govt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


But there is one ray of sunshine in this HYPOCRITE emergency!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Cloaca will NOT be rebuilt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


it was just TOO NASTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mega houses and Mega Malls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One reason is because so much LIE-beral policy is based ON DECEIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The carbon crap and trade tax SCAM WILL NOT SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The carbon scam has been proven to ONLY clean cash from wallets and leaves the dirt in the air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Another HUGE FAILING of LIE-beral policy is that it GOES AGAINST human nature and is ENTIRELY FOCUSED on what LIE-berals want without regard to public needs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Cdns see no reason why they should be jammed into little concrete boxes stacked high into the sky just so LIE-berals will NOT have to spend THEIR GRAVY to expand roads and transit options for us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And we LIKE living in a house with a bit of green around us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-berals have offered up NO compelling reasons why we should give up our small dreams just so LIE-berals can save on gravy or buy votes from radicals who hate white people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!


ALL LIE-BERAL POLICY IS FAILING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-beral values are being DROWNED in LIE-beral two faced HYPOCRISY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 winters ago it was November that was cold all the way through, long, long ago it was cold for 3 months straight. The dead of winter is not the danger zone. Late springs and early fall frosts are.
Wash. State is getting 'lake effect' levels of snow. Hills and snow that turns to ice when driven on, that is not a good combination. Power lines like wet snow even less than roads do.

Climate scientists evaporating under Trudeau, not Harper


By David Akin, Parliamentary Bureau Chief

First posted: Monday, August 08, 2016 06:19 PM EDT | Updated: Monday, August 08, 2016 09:37 PM EDT

Muzzled scientists? Trudeau carries on just like Harper

Related Stories

Where’s the bark from Canada’s unmuzzled scientists?

OTTAWA -- The Justin Trudeau government is on pace this year to preside over the biggest-ever recorded cut to the number of federal environment scientists.

Statistics Canada earlier this year forecast the number of scientific and technological personnel at Environment and Climate Change Canada would be reduced this fiscal year by nearly 11% -- or 406 jobs -- compared to 2015-2016. StatsCan started counting federal scientists in 2000.

(Isnt that WONDERFUL? LIE-berals and their civil service union Hog allies LIED relentlessly about Harper and claimed - among other things - that he was a climate DENIER -simply because he FROZE THE WAGES of civil servants as a result of the 2008 economic melt down! LIE-berals pretended that freezing Hog wages somehow equaled approval of pollution!!!!! And now Our idiot Boy is FIRING the scientists! Such remarkable hypocrisy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Officials with Environment Minister Catherine McKenna's office said late Monday that StatsCan's forecast is based on data provided before the 2016 budget and that, as Environment Canada got a spending bump of $120 million this year in the budget, more scientists are likely to be hired.

Environment Canada officials, though, could not say how many or when.

(Oh yes- just the usual LIE-beral bait and switch! Why fire the scientists only to hire them again later? Unless you are planning to offer them CHEAPER WAGES and shorter contract work? And the scientists will swallow it because govt money is the only money available to them!)

Fewer scientists under the Trudeau government works against a narrative that the previous Conservative government was anti-science. A headcount by the Sun shows the Stephen Harper government did not appear to have singled out scientists for cuts and, in fact, at Environment Canada, it worked to preserve scientific jobs.

(AS mentioned- frozen wages does not equal an attack on the environment! And many scientists are now looking at the reality that frozen wages are superior to NO WAGES! Such is the lesson of LIE-beral bait and switch!!!!!!!!!!!)

As the civil service grew in Harper's early years, to so too did the number of scientists, peaking in 2011-2012 with 39,189 scientists employed across all government departments.

(Oh DEAR? Harper actually HIRED SCIENTISTS? The ones Our idiot Boy is NOW FIRING ???? I guess LIE-berals figure they already know everything they need to about the environment?????????)

Then, as the civil service was trimmed after 2011 to help fight the deficit, the number of scientists on the public payroll fell in rough proportion to the overall civil service.

That said, the Conservative axe fell a little lighter among Environment Canada scientists. The headcount there did dip by 6% in 2010-12 but then grew by 9% the next year. And by 2014-15 — another other Harper year — the number of scientists at Environment Canada peaked at an all-time high of 3,830.

(So the head count GROWS even as LIE-berals wail about the Harper war on the environment? Such amazing duplicity by LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!)

The current forecast has just 3,386 science jobs at Environment Canada, which would be nearly 12% fewer than the peak employed two years ago by the Harper government.

(The cynic will assume that LIE-berals do not need or want too many scientists around because it might blow up in their faces!! Having lots of well informed eggheads telling the world that the LIE-beral carbon crap and trade scam is NOT saving the environment is NOT a message LIE-berals want the public to hear!!!!!!)

The carbon crap and trade tax has done a variety of things for Canada!!!!!!!!


The carbon crap has contributed powerfully to inflation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The cost of EVERYTHING has been driven up substantially!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Inflation has been a BOON to LIE-berals all across the land!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


By driving up the price of everything- LIE-berals get MORE GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Would you want 13 percent of a billion dollars???????????????????????


Or 13 percent of TWO billion dollars?????????????????????


No need to think hard about which number will put more gravy in your pocket surely????????????????????????


All that extra inflation gives LIE-berals that absolutely NECESSARY EXCUSE to give civil service union Hogs a pay raise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And that new carbon crap revenue means LIE-berals have a fresh new supply of gravy for the Hogs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all- just because ordinary people are losing good full time jobs and ending up with part time crap is no reason for Hogs to suffer!!!!!!!!!


And just because ordinary people are dealing with frozen wages and reduced wages is NO REASON for key LIE-beral supporters to suffer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As for the old folks on fixed incomes- those selfish greedy Gits should be grateful that LIE-berals allow those sick old souls to hang out in hospital hallways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


After all- doctors get to the people on the gurneys in the hallway eventually!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


Just what do you think you are ENTITLED TO after a lifetime of being taxed into the ground??????????????



Though I suppose it might be embarrassing to have to use a bed pan while laying in a hallway???????????????


Or would be more embarrassing for the people forced to use the hallway to access other parts of the building- while you were using the pan??????????


And WHO CARES if the carbon crap only cleans cash from wallets and leaves the dirt in the air???????????????????


Letting LIE-berals cling to power at any price is far more important than some stupid birds in the sky or slimy fish in the sea!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So the carbon crap and trade tax scam is VERY GOOD FOR CDNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And all those people who are bitching about the carbon tax scam- LIE-berals DISMISS them as UN-Cdn and racist!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carbon taxes have topped up government coffers just when they were running out of excuses to levy more taxes. Tariffs have also proven to be a bonanza for governments on both sborder.
