Nice answer. But nothing in it proves that the mining of non-fossil fuels is even as remotely as destructive as the oil and coal industries.
OK genius. Explain the difference between a subsidy paid for by taxpayers and an incentive paid for by taxpayers. I betting even your dogmatic bafflegab is not up to the task.
Oh poor LIE-berals- they are scurrying about like cockroaches that have suddenly found themselves in the bright light of day. Fed up Cdn voters have examined LIE-beral policy and declared all of it to be utter failure! Even worse- LIE-berals have run out of cash to offer up to persuade some of us to look the other way- as LIE-berals work to make Canada better- FOR THEM! Here is an article illustrating how empty LIE-beral values are. With some comments of my own in brackets):
Doug Ford's tax break won't cut it for poor, Liberals claim

TORONTO — If you’re a minimum wage earner, voting for Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford is going to cost you, the Ontario Liberals claim.
$1,465, to be precise.
Ontario Labour Minister Kevin Flynn quoted a report by the Ontario office of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives in his assertion that minimum wage earners making $15-an-hour would see an annual increase in their take-home pay of $1,950.
Labour Minister Kevin Flynn
Senior economist Sheila Block looked at Ford’s statement that he would freeze the minimum wage at $14 an hour, instead of following through with the Liberal plan to increase it to $15 an hour on Jan. 1, and eliminate income tax for those earning $30,000 a year or less.
Block calculates that Ford’s tax cut would provide only $485 in savings for the average minimum wage earner.
(Sheila Block is the same person who also told us that Ontari-owe LIE-beral debt was reasonable and manageable just so long as interest rates did not rise- or other economic shocks did not appear! And of course interest rates are slowly rising, the big economic engine- housing construction has faltered as LIE-berals panic over rising debt loads, and we are looking at potential federal deficits in the $120 billion dollar range if Our idiot Boy Justin succeeds in getting Trump disgusted enough to scrap NAFTA over LIE-beral immigration madness!)
(And of course Our idiot Boy was elected on a promise to run small $10 billion dollar deficits for a couple of years till Cdn economy recovered- and it has NOT recovered- it has gotten WORSE- and those “small deficits have ballooned into vast flows of red ink that are at least double what he promised with no sign he has any clue how to keep us from drowning in that red ink! LIE-beral friendly economists cannot predict with accuracy what may happen in bond markets as Cdn debt grows, and cannot predict how much prices will rise as a result of LIE-beral mandated wage increases nor can they predict how many people may be laid off as a result of customers shunning biz with higher prices! In short- our economist are guessing- based on their political biases and personal preferences!)
“What his plan would mean is less money for essentials, including food and transit, all those everyday expenses,” Flynn said. “What it is plain conservative old-fashioned ideology.”
(Less money for poor people? Really? Economist Block appears to have made predictions based on ideology. What we CAN be certain of- because LIE-berals have told us- is that there WILL be ongoing price increases for many things -if LIE-berals win another Ontari-owe election! We are in an election year so there will be no TTC fare hike- this year- for political reasons! We have been told that LIE-berals intend to put up the price of electricity steadily for some years to come- with the actual rate of increase to be determined IF they win the election or otherwise! The property tax hike for this years is 2.9 percent while LIE-berals claimed to be aiming at “inflation rate” of 2 percent- while ordinary people make due with raises of about 0.5 percent! LIE-beral math does NOT add up! If LIE-berals win the 2018 election then we can be assured they will LOOT AND PILLAGE in 2019 to pay for all those civil service union Hog votes that put them back in power!)
(IN addition Ontari-owe is “partnered with California on the carbon crap and trade tax scam and California has put up its carbon tax from $10.00 to $18.00 and shall we ask if Wynne-bag is simply waiting till after the June election she is still hoping to win- to follow partner California in jacking up that carbon tax- which will put food prices up another 15-20 percent! One reason for LIE-berals to be breaking their promise on giving us a balanced budget in 2018 is because they have offered \Hogs a 2 percent raise for this year- with no new taxes to pay for it- its an election year and new taxes are bad for LIE-beral public image- but how bad is it to be seen borrowing money to give to greedy Hogs How much wage increase will LIE-berals let us keep if they are re-elected? Your honest answer should be NONE!)
The record shows that Ontario PCs tend to freeze minimum wage when they’re in government, he said.
(Oh gosh- frozen minimum wages? How awful- compared to the tens of thousands of jobs LOST in just the first month after the LIE-beral wage increase! A better wage does not help those who got laid off and it certainly will not help those who will not be hired in future because LIE-beral taxes are a job killer- and a govt mandated wage hike is equal to a new tax on biz- and a job killer!)
Ford could not be reached for comment, but in a tweet, he noted Ontario had the lowest increase in median household income in the country between 2005-15.
“Everyday working people are being left behind in Kathleen Wynne’s Ontario, while her friends have grown rich,” he tweeted.
Ford has yet to deliver his election platform but he has been critical of the way the Ontario Liberals introduced the minimum wage.

(Bait and switch is a beloved LIE-beral policy! They offer up that dandy wage increase and then start doing the “take aways”! A higher wage means more income tax collected by LIE-berals. It means more cash collected in Unemployment Insurance deductions. Means a higher contribution to Canada Pension Plan. And best of all- for LIE-berals- it fuels inflation as biz passes on the new wage costs to customers as higher prices- which gives LIE-berals what THEY WANT- a better excuse to PAY MORE GRAVY TO CIVIL SERVICE UNION HOGS!)
(Yes- LIE-berals keep telling us they only pay out money according to the “inflation rate” and with our economy drowning in red ink and no inflation visible in the private sector- LIE-berals have chosen to CREATE inflation as an excuse and to confuse voters!)
(We have seen a series of HUGE price increases for electricity- as LIE-berals turn our electrical system into a giant slush fund for their Hog allies. Even worse- LIE-berals have slammed shut the books so we cannot see what manner of dirt is hidden in their Hydro files- its OUR MONEY but its NOT our business to know what LIE-berals do with it!)
(We have endured a series of NINE PERCENT water rate increases- 9 percent in each of 5 years and then a series of FOUR PERCENT increases after that as LIE-berals registered on our growing rage! And we should not ask what happened to the LIE-beral inflation target of TWO PERCENT? LIE-berals tell us the water rate increases are needed to pay for repairs and upgrades to the neglected system- but they do NOT want to admit that the system is neglected because ALL the money was spent on Hog gravy for decades and NONE was spent on maintenance! So now we endure both emergency repairs and major floods plus Hog wage greed!)
(And LIE-berals have “helped” us with auto insurance rates as well -so they say! I ask: did YOU get your 15 percent rate reduction? LIE-berals CLAIM you did- in the form of reduced increases for insurance! But LIE-berals do NOT mention the FIFTY PERCENT REDUCTION in benefits for accident victims that came with your mythical 15 percent reduction in auto rates! LIE-berals do not want to admit that Ontari-owe drivers have lower accident rates than other Cdns yet pay THE HIGHEST RATES! Nor do they want to discuss how many Sunshine List pals own stocks in insurance companies- and Lord knows- Hogs NEED more gravy- hence the LIE-beral insurance rates!)
(LIE-berals- who do NOT like to be contradicted- tell us our rates are high because of FRAUD! But fraud is a crime and LIE-berals are IGNORING IT! Why not launch a blitz on the organized crime gangs that are behind the staged accidents and against the doctors aiding the fraudsters collecting benefits for alleged whiplash and other easily faked soft tissue injuries? Are LIE-berals worried that they will find many of the fraud artists to be immigrants let into Canada by shameless LIE-berals BUYING votes at any price?)
(LIE-berals always tell us we are systemic racists if we complain about immigrant crime rates. But LIE-berals do not want to talk about the Russian arrested at his magnificent King City mansion for the second time because all his wonderful luxuries are paid for with FORGED credit cards! LIE-berals do not wish to discuss the biggest ATM bank machine fraud in Cdn history- pulled off with the technical aid of gangs based in Russia! LIE-berals do not wish to discuss the 4 Afghan brothers arrested on car theft charges- over 1500 charges- with convictions on ALL! Do not want to discuss the Sikhs arrested for bribing and bullying gas station attendants into letting them set up credit card readers in stores to gather information to aid forgers in making more fake cards! Do not want to discuss the Sikhs who set up fake unemployment insurance accounts through their house renovation biz and claimed benefits based on LIES! Crime is an equal opportunity employer and there is NO need to single out any race- but LIE-berals long ago figured out their snake oil political sales policies go better with poor immigrants so LIE-berals seek to distract us with this systemic racist crap!)
(There are other matters of concern related to auto insurance rates and mythical LIE-beral benefits. Such as snow plow contracts for clearing our roads- with LIE-beral penny pinching putting drivers in danger. LIE-berals have “relaxed” snow clearing times-meaning our roads are plowed less frequently as LIE-berals wrestled with companies that offered to do the job cheap- but lacked suitable equipment to perform even at the “relaxed” LIE-beral standard!)
(There are also concerns over road paving contracts with inferior paving material used as a cost saving measure- but hey- its good for LIE-berals as the nice fresh paving will last at least till after the next election- and that is good enough for LIE-berals! Too bad about the damage to our cars steering and suspension as we jolt and rattle over those potholes though- its just another hidden cost LIE-berals do not want to discuss!)
(LIE-berals rob Peter to pay Paul- and Peter is private sector and Paul is a public sector union Hog! That “wonderful” LIE-beral wage increase VANISHES once you get the rest of the policy- increased govt costs for EVERYTHING!)
(And worst of all- LIE-berals keep talking about fairness and the need for new revenue tools but if fairness were really their concern then why would they not immediately impose the health levy on civil service union Hogs in Ontari-owe? As it stands now- no Hog pays that health levy- and one employed Cdn in three works for govt! No wonder there is a hole in the health care books!)
