Indeed the Americans do love our carbon tax. Thanks to the dummy politicians here in BC, they obviously must think that this is just great for the people of BC. They must be just too stupid to see that they are losing out on millions of taxes every year off the gas that is not being sold here in bimbo land called BC. I swear that some of our politicians have to be some of the biggest dummies in the political world. Canadians are overtaxed, over governed, and are slowly having their freedoms taken away, and there appears to be no worries about this at all with them.

In Kelowna, BC the municipal politicians there are about to apply a $7,000 levy on homeowners who buy new homes or condos on top of the other taxes that people must pay when buying a home. Do they need this $7,000 or is it just another tax grab? Personally, it is just another excuse to steal more money from people who are already paying the highest taxes in the world. Most of our politicians from all three levels of government can only be described as a bunch of, as old Hillary Clinton would say, deplorables. They are not there for we the people but appear to be there for themselves only. Pathetic.








WELL OF COURSE KELOWNA POLITICIANS NEED THAT NEW TAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Surely you did not think that HOG GRAVY GREW ON TREES????????????????????


AND you know LIE-berals CANNOT get elected without BUYING HOG VOTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Thus the extra tax is DESPERATELY NEEDED - FOR LIE-berals and HOGS ONLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


NO OTHERS NEED APPLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And one has to wonder - if such gravy DID grow on trees ...........................


how long before HOGS would corner the market?????????????


Using their GROSS CONFLICT OF INTEREST AT ELECTION TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


By which I mean HOGS SELL THEIR VOTES TO LIE-berals in exchange for GRAVY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


As I have pointed out before - if a corporate CEO offered employees cash in exchange.................................


for votes FOR CONSERVATIVES...................


then LIE-berals and HOGS WOULD GO WILD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


They would be SCREAMING ABOUT CONFLICT OF INTEREST THAT COULD ONLY BE SOLVED BY JAIL TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hypocrite is a fine word synonymous with LIE-beral !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Of course not, Quebec believes they are entitled to the resource revenue of Alberta. Truth is, they are total idiots that fail to realize the system is broken and unsustainable. With Trudeau flat-out refusing to renegotiate the equalization formula for another 5 years, the Liberals and QC is expecting AB and SK to put their economy in debt to fund Quebec's surplus....while at the same time, kneecapping the ability of AB to develop resources and generate revenue and systematically destroying their resource economy.

Not only is it unsustainable, but Albertans have reached the end of their rope. I suspect that dramatic change is imminent in this country, the East better buckle up for a bumpy ride.


Yes sir.


High time that the divorce moves ahead


All Scheer did was finish high school (I think) and be a white guy.

Is Justin a Rhodes scholer?.........Hardly.....lol




WHUT???????????????????


Who said Our idiot Boy was a Rhodes Scholar????????????????????


Or even used the word scholar to describe him??????????????????????


Our idiot Boy IS A HYPOCRITE of the first rank!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And his political career is UNRAVELING AS WE SPEAK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Consider:::::::::::::::::::::::






Here is an article illustrating how little real influence Our idiot Boy and his loser LIE-beals have over native radicals!! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Saskatoon protest springs up, even after Trudeau orders blockades torn down

From The Cdn Press , Published February 22, 2020

More protests in solidarity with Wet'suwet'en hereditary chiefs sprung up on Saturday, a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pivoted to take a sterner tone with Indigenous leaders he blames for halting train service across much of Canada.

(Quite obviously the radicals DO NOT BELIEVE Our idiot Boy!! If he were to take strong action to end the blockades, he would be violating DECADES of LIE-beral policy!! Our idiot Boy would profoundly OFFEND all manner of LIE-beral supporters - who were stupid enough to believe him when he promised to KILL the entire Cdn oil patch; promised “genuine reconciliation’ with native radicals; and promised to cut back on “white privilege” and “systemic racism”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Now matters have COME TO A BOIL!! Our idiot Boy can NO LONGER slide by with sappy virtue signalling platitudes!! IT is time to SHOW AND TELL what LIE-beral values really look like IN ACTION!! And it is time to PRESENT THE BILL for the cost of implementing all those LIE-beral platitudes!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(How tragic for Our idiot Boy that his minority govt CANNOT LONG SURVIVE such a public exposure of costs and failings and GROSS HYPOCRISY!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Crowds of protesters rallied at the Ontario legislature in Toronto, carrying signs that called for RCMP to leave Wet'suwet'en land and for the federal government to respect Indigenous sovereignty. Another rail-line protest sprung up in Saskatoon.

(Even as protestors ramp up their efforts to make Our idiot Boy look even more foolish - CBC News has video of a Wet`suwet`en voice of reason - meaning THERE ARE MANY NATIVES who see the jobs that come with the pipelines as a GENUINE WAY OUT OF POVERTY AND UNEMPLOYMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(Our idiot Boy is caught - the pipelines WILL PROVIDE JOBS for natives as many desire - but cancelling the pipelines will do TERRIBLE DAMAGE to Cdn democracy since it will cripple the concept of majority rule - by allowing an un-elected minority DICTATE to us all!! Even worse - THERE ARE NO OTHER JOBS available to replace the jobs lost by pipeline cancellation!! Not only will many natives be disappointed - there will be HUGE SPIN OFF consequences in the main stream white community as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(The consequences for main stream Canada WILL NOT be confined to Alberta since the builders and maintainers of the pipeline will need to buy all manner of products - from tools to vehicles made in other provinces!! And of course the sale of natural gas and oil to markets outside Canada will bring new tax revenue to Ottawa and make it easier to manage our massive LIE-beral debts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

(If all the benefits on offer are killed off by a radical minority - CDNS KNOW WHO TO BLAME - meaning that IDIOT BOY and his loser LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Local police said they were monitoring the protest along the railway tracks, and a statement from the office of Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe said a train was allowed to pass through the protest area as scheduled.

(Yes- as a result of regular LIE-beral harassment of cops just doing their jobs - cops have become VERY GOOD at “monitoring” but ARE SHY of taking action - unless they get very precise and explicit INSTRUCTIONS from their political masters and the masters are more interested in issuing VAGUE platitudes that are more useful for ass covering than for resolving radical native insurrection that challenges the rule of law and exposes LIE-beral FAILURES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Moe's office said the protest must remain lawful and that transport routes cannot be disrupted by illegal blockades.

Trudeau said Friday the blockades must come down and said injunctions to clear the rail lines must be enforced. He pointed the finger at Indigenous leadership, who he said have not been receptive to his government's attempts at negotiation.

(And why should radicals respond to anything LESS THAN TOTAL LIE-beral surrender?? Blackmail is the radical order of the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

The barricades, including one on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory in eastern Ontario, are in response to a move by the RCMP to clear protesters who had been blocking access to a pipeline worksite on Wet'suwet'en territory in northern British Columbia.

(And of course the blockade was imposed AFTER LIE-berals did a huge new effort to CONSULT AND BRIBE local communities into accepting the pipeline - but blackmailers always COME BACK FOR MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Canada's Prime Minister Trudeau Canada's Prime Minister Trudeau Supporters who gathered near the Ontario blockade said they were disheartened by Trudeau's strong words against the protests — with one saying it was Trudeau's shift in tone that drove her to make the 40-kilometre trek to the rail line.

"I've been meaning to come, but with what he said yesterday, I just said, OK I'm going," said Sarah Dear, who brought small gifts from Mexico she said were symbolic for Indigenous communities there.

"I voted for Trudeau back in 2015 because he promised meaningful reconciliation, and as far as I'm concerned he's broken that promise," she said.

(Radicals believe that reconciliation is a LIE-beral word meaning “total surrender to native demands”!! And in traditional native fashion - there IS NO CENTRAL NATIVE AUTHORITY to keep the rank and file in line!! Thus - as LIE-berals have proved - it is possible to have agreement with the majority of natives and still end up with blockades since traditional native governance has NO dispute resolution mechanism - and radicals refuse to recognize the white authority - this is a formula for POLITICAL CHAOS AND PARALYSIS - because NOBODY is in charge any more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Cory Chalk, who lives on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory but isn't Indigenous, said he, too, felt Trudeau was striking the wrong tone and making the wrong moves.

"He's not talking to the right people still — trying to lay down the hammer is not going to work," he said. "This is a whole generation standing up against a lot of things that have been done wrong."

(Yes- a “whole generation” steeped in LIE-beral BULLSH+T and utterly confused about the reality of their place in the world - and convinced that any attempt to expose them to reality IS SOME SORT OF RACIST PLOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

He said if police tried to dismantle the blockade with force, he thinks they would be met with force back.

( I agree- Mohawks have a long history of armed confrontation with cops!! How- ever western tribes have not been so militant - but that may change!!!!!!!!)

Increased attention is on Canadian police forces now that Trudeau has ordered the enforcement of anti-blockade injunctions.

A Wet'suwet'en hereditary chief said protesters won't tear down the barricades themselves unless, and until, the Mounties get off their traditional territory and Coastal GasLink halts construction on the natural-gas pipeline that crosses their land.

(Yes - “traditional land” is a phrase used by radicals to justify a MASSIVE LAND GRAB - taking Crown Lands BACK from white govt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Chief Woos of the Grizzly House said Indigenous leadership will only begin negotiating with the Canadian government under those same conditions. But Trudeau said injunctions ordering the rail lines be cleared must be obeyed and the law must be enforced.

On Thursday, the RCMP in B.C. sent a letter to the traditional leaders of the Wet'suwet'en Nation, telling them the force intends to move its officers off the access road and station them instead in the nearby town of Houston, but Woos said a letter isn't good enough.

(A letter is not accepted?? That means deliberate insult and more political chaos!!)

Protesters who'd been blockading a CN Rail line in St-Lambert, Que., south of Montreal since Wednesday cleared out Friday night shortly after riot police arrived on scene ready to enforce an injunction to clear the tracks. But the blockade of a critical east-west rail line on Tyendinaga territory remains in place — and more protests are planned for March 20 along the borders of Manitoba.

Ontario Provincial Police have said they don't intend to break up the Tyendinaga protest in the immediate future.

But Trudeau said the inconvenience to Canadians has gone on long enough, given that the blockades have halted rail lines for weeks.

"Let us be clear: all Canadians are paying the price. Some people can't get to work, others have lost their jobs," he told a news conference Friday. "Essential goods … cannot get where they need to go."

(And Our idiot Boy is paralysed by the impending damage that will be done to his minority govt!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Ignoring concerns of energy-producing provinces could break democratic politics, Michael Ignatieff says

Former Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff says it is possible that the debate over climate change “could break democratic politics” in Canada if federal policies simply ignore the considerations of energy-producing provinces in the West.
Speaking at Cambridge University two weeks before Canadian mining company Teck cancelled its plan for an estimated $20 billion oilsands mine in Alberta over political uncertainty and amid social unrest, including railroad blockades, protesting a B.C. natural gas pipeline, Ignatieff said that a functional political system requires a “necessary hypocrisy” to navigate debates like the one that pits Canada’s natural resource economy against climate change priorities.
“If you produce energy, your kids’ jobs depend on it, you depend on it, you have one take on this. A national political system has to adjudicate that,” Ignatieff said at the February 12 event which was to help launch Cambridge University’s new Centre for the Future of Democracy, and was posted this past weekend on the Talking Politics podcast feed.
“If you don’t believe that’s a process you have to go through, if you just think, oh, forget about Alberta and Saskatchewan, forget about the energy-producing provinces because the mortal threat is so great we just read out a whole constituency of our country from consideration, you get away from democracy,” said Ignatieff, who in addition to his brief political career as leader of the federal Liberals in opposition from 2008 and 2011, is also an author, a public intellectual, a professor of international politics and is currently rector and President of Central European University.
“All this stuff is going to get tougher and tougher and tougher for every society but if you don’t believe that it’s in democracy that we adjudicate those conflicts and everyone gets less than they want, we’ll blow the place up.”
Ignatieff said that while many climate activists treat the issue as one that transcends politics, the political system is in fact vital to balancing a country’s conflicting priorities.
“It has to take it slowly and it has to engage in a whole set of hypocrisies, like we can both pump gas and get to carbon neutrality. The levels of hypocrisy about this in Canada in the democratic system are sickening but it is the necessary hypocrisy of a society trying to hold itself together in the middle of the biggest energy transition in the history of the country.” ........More

FCA to end third shift at Windsor Assembly Plant in June, affecting 1,500 workers

WINDSOR, Ont. — Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is cutting the third shift at its Windsor Assembly Plant beginning June 29.
The automaker says it notified Unifor Thursday about the change that will affect about 1,500 employees.
The move keeps the shift operational for an additional three months. Originally scheduled to shut down last September, the shift's closing was given a four-month reprieve in November to last until March 31.
FCA says it made the decision to match volumes with demand as production of the Dodge Grand Caravan is phased out at the end of May.
"The company will make every effort to place indefinitely laid off hourly employees in open full-time positions as they become available based on seniority and will offer retirement packages to eligible employees," spokeswoman LouAnn Gosselin wrote in an email.
Unifor Local 444 president Dave Cassidy held a news conference in Windsor to discuss the impact.
"We worked to prevent this shift loss with the full understanding of the devastating affect that this would have on our membership," he said in a news release.
"Now we will ensure that these workers receive the support that they need in this process as we continue to fight for new product for Windsor Assembly with the goal of preserving and increasing these good paying auto manufacturing jobs."
The decision will lead to significant job loss in the parts supply chain, and inflict damage to both the local and national economy, the national union said in a statement.
"Unifor is very disappointed that FCA was unable to find a solution that would have avoided job losses," said national president Jerry Dias. "There is no question that the economic ramifications will be felt across the region and throughout the country."
He said investment in Canadian automobile production will be a priority during negotiations that get underway this summer with FCA, General Motors and Ford. It will also continue to press various levels of government about the need for a national auto strategy to stabilize and grow the sector...…...More

Gotta wait now until the Sept. 23 confidence vote now, promises to open up the Green infrastructure, but it's gonna cost us big time.


Is tater tot aware that folks shy away from all the greenie initiatives when the economic environment is crappy?... Folks are too busy worrying about feeding their family and heating the house more than paying through the nose for eco strategies to save Gaia (maybe)

Mr Duncan should have implemented his own carbon tax and avoided the whole issue
(we're doing fine with ours here in BC as are the other provinces who had the the energy to do their jobs)


Now you're being disingenuous Hoid. BC started out by making it "revenue neutral" but now it's not and costing BC residents millions of dollars every year. So blame the NDP or whomever, but it's not as 'good' as you claim and FYI your emissions have gone up - not down.

And here we go if anyone believes this is what is going to save Canada and make it boom again, guess again and don't let the pipedream drag you down.

Liberals to unveil ‘ambitious green agenda’ in throne speech, Trudeau says

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says his government will unveil an "ambitious green agenda" in the throne speech scheduled to be delivered later this month.

"We know the world is going towards greater energy efficiency. We know the world is going towards lower carbon We know that the world is moving towards more renewable energy," he said. "This is the way the world is going."

Trudeau made the comments from Ottawa during an exclusive virtual interview with Global News' Sophie Lui on Wednesday.

Earlier that day, the prime minister met online with business leaders in B.C., focusing on green economic recovery efforts as the country continues to grapple with fallout from the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Western Canada has been especially hard-hit by the pandemic as travel restrictions have sent global oil prices tumbling.

Trudeau said green recovery is about "long-term recovery," and that the country needs to be "leading the way" on the shift to renewable energy and addressing the climate crisis.

He said the path forward must include people working in industries that will be affected by such a shift, but that Canada should seize the opportunity that COVID-19 has created.

"We have an opportunity to go green. We have an opportunity to be fairer, to reduce barriers for women's participation, (and) Indigenous participation in the workforce," he said.

"There are so many things that we can look at as an opportunity through this tragedy of COVID to do bigger things."

The green agenda will be presented to Parliament later this month, he added.

"And parliamentarians can decide, because we're in a minority situation, whether this government has the support to move forward on this new agenda that, quite frankly, nobody ran an election on a year ago because we didn't know about COVID," Trudeau said.

"This is a completely different situation."

Trudeau had asked Governor General Julie Payette to prorogue Parliament back on Aug. 18, effectively halting all of its business.

The move came hours after Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland was sworn in as the country's finance minister, following Bill Morneau's sudden resignation.

After the throne speech later this month, opposition parties could trigger a non-confidence vote in the Trudeau government.

If a vote is called, the Liberals, who found themselves 13 seats short of a majority in the 2019 election, would need the support of at least one opposition party to keep power.

The move to prorogue came as the country continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, and amid an ethics probe into the government's now-defunct contract with WE Charity over a volunteer student aid program.

What the pandemic has to do with a green economy is beyond me
