Back in the 1800’s most of the beaver were trapped out in the Caribou region of B.C. , this caused the area to become more arid and contributed to loss of tree cover . Reintroduction of the beaver reversed the drying trend . Without the beaver this drying would be blamed on climate change .
Like the wolves reintroduced from Banff into Yellowstone that turned grassland into bush again, etc…

We won’t need roads where we’re going. At least that’s how Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault wants it.

He wants to end funding for new roads in Canada and ban cars that use gas or diesel, while forcing our heating and energy to become all electric.

Meanwhile, as energy researcher and commentator Parker Gallant tells Brian Lilley this week, we’re throwing billions at battery plants that lack materials and even markets, as buyers shun EVs and push demand for power infrastructure we don’t have. As Gallant explains, all these “net-zero” plans being forced on us by Ottawa look like they could well be ruinously costly — while driving us in the wrong direction. (Recorded Feb. 21, 2024.)

The Saskatchewan government is once again defending its stance on the federal carbon tax, including its decision to remove the tax from home heating.

Last week, Dustin Duncan — the province’s minister responsible for Crown corporations, including SaskEnergy — announced that Saskatchewan will not remit the carbon taxon natural gas used for home heating to Ottawa.

The Saskatchewan Party made the decision to stop collecting the carbon tax from residents of the province after the federal government announced it would be removing the tax on home heating oil, which is used by many families in Atlantic Canada.

Ottawa responded to Saskatchewan’s move by saying residents will no longer receive carbon rebates, even though they’re still paying the tax on other items.

Speaking Monday, Premier Scott Moe again defended the move to stop collecting the tax and said his government has only mirrored the decisions made by the federal government.

“They made a three-year hiatus on the carbon tax for home heating fuel, largely impacting Atlantic Canadians; we did a three-year hiatus on natural gas and electric heat here,” Moe said during a media event in Regina.

The federal minister of energy and natural resources, Jonathan Wilkinson, said Saskatchewan’s move is reckless, as the law to impose a carbon levy was upheld by the Supreme Court of Canada.

“(It’s) irresponsible and almost unheard of in the history of this country,” he said. “Premiers, just like prime ministers, are responsible for passing laws, and they expect their citizens to abide by those laws. If you do not have that expectation, you have anarchy.”

Moe responded to that statement Monday by saying the federal government had made the exact same decision as Saskatchewan.

“We emulated and mirrored the decision that they made in Atlantic Canada, and so I don’t agree with it,” Moe said.

“I don’t agree that the federal government is causing anarchy by making the decision that they did to remove the carbon tax from home heating fuel and largely impacting Atlantic Canada.

“To mirror that decision in the provinces on natural gas and electric heat would be the same result, so if one causes anarchy, I would say the other one does.”

Moe said the tax was driving up costs for everyone.

“It is driving up much of the food inflation and the general inflation that we are seeing in this province; there’s proof of that,” the premier said. “As we removed this portion just from home heating fuel, it was identified that inflation dropped in the province.”

The provincial government eliminated the carbon tax on home heating on Jan. 1 of this year.

Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault is calling the Saskatchewan government’s decision not to pay the federal carbon price “immoral.”
“If Premier Scott Moe decides he wants to start breaking federal laws then measures will be taken. We can’t let that happen. What if tomorrow someone decides they want to break other laws, criminal laws? What would happen then?” Guilbeault said at a press conference in Montreal on Monday. “If your aunt had balls, would she be your uncle?”

I have suspicions but...
Maybe there’s an overlap here?Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre says Canada is broken while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says it isn’t.

A Leger/Postmedia poll released Thursday found it’s no contest — 70% of Canadians surveyed agreed with the statement “it feels like everything is broken in the country right now”, compared to 27% who disagreed.

Even 43% of Liberal voters said it feels like everything’s broken, along with 85% of Conservative voters, 66% of NDP voters and 58% of BQ supporters.

Adding to the Trudeau government’s woes, 59% said they’re angry with “how Canada is being managed by the federal government today”, compared to only 33% who say they’re happy with it.

Im going switch to heating oil just because.
Well, the “free” heat pump would work well for AC part of the year. Could you do it on a small scale as a supplement to your natural gas furnace in order to qualify for the “free” heat pump (?) and still not void your home owners insurance by not having a supplemental heat source beyond the heat pump itself (by still having your natural gas furnace & supply) when you get rid of the heating oil supplemental system?
