Justin Trudeau is going to bring in a carbon tax. Just like his dad, Pierre Trudeau, did.
His dad called it the National Energy Program, and claimed it was for national sovereignty reasons, or whatever excuse worked with the media of the day.
It’s 2014, so the excuse now is “the environment.”
Trudeau announced his plans for a carbon tax last year in Calgary – at the Petroleum Club no less. It was a shocking announcement – but not a single other media outlet reported it, except a brief mention on the Globe and Mail’s website.
Why would the media ignore Trudeau’s speech calling for a carbon tax – a speech that is available on his website to this day?
