Cap-and-trade is really a carbon tax

In her desperate search for up to $2 billion-a-year more of our money to fund her debt-ridden government, Premier Kathleen Wynne is reportedly going to try and convince us that cap-and-trade isn’t a carbon tax.

Don’t be fooled. Cap-and-trade is a carbon tax by another name.

In fact, it’s far more prone to political corruption, insider manipulation and fraud than a carbon tax.

That’s why the fraudsters at Enron were among its earliest promoters in North America.

    If C&T had no attraction for the powerful rent seekers behind GLLKDW, it would have sunk without a trace and never been heard from again.

    You must be homophobic to disagree with Great Leader.

    It should be mandatory for all members Kathleen Wynne’s caucus to be required to wear Nascar style jackets so taxpayers would know who bought and paid for them.

      I loathe the Ontario Liberals, but cannot that be said for any and all provincial and federal governments in Canada? The USA too?

      • ntt1

        I only mildly dislike the BC liberals, a full on loathing sounds exhausting , this way I am in for the stretch.

      It should be mandatory for all members Kathleen Wynne’s caucus to be hung for crimes against the people.

    Because we all know that cap and trade works so well in Europe. NOT!

  • FactsWillOut

    Their drum-beat to excuse yet more taxes and regulations will not end until this particular incarnation of civilization ends.
    Invest in a still, some brass and lead, some home farming equipment, etc.
    Let. It. Burn.

    Light and heavy industry will have to pay Ontario for the “right” to emit C02 gasses — so it’s another tax grab by the corrupt Wynn Liberals. And needless to say, her Liberals have the strong backing of the Toronto media elite. And the light and heavy industry — with the higher carbon-tax costs, will relocate to the U.S. And nobody seems to care anymore, over the de-industrialization of Ontario.

      Exactly. Job killing leftist initiatives. *sigh* The worst part of it is these plans are devoid of scientific or economic logic.

      • WalterBannon

        The worst part of it is this is another straw on the camels back – the left are leading us to civil war.

    Giving the keys to the province to a bunch of radical leftists intent on destroying all that was there when they were born.

    Its not the end of the world but we can see it from here.

    C&T created by Ken Lay of Enron fame and man-bear-pig Al Gore
    total scam shakedown fraud racketeering criminal scheme.

  • This is a war on the poor.

    Where are the anti-poverty and consumer rights activists on this?

    As food and service prices go up, low-income families will buckle. Then the middle-classes.

    I know Ontario Liberal voters hate the poor but sooner or later this tax will affect them.

    Revolution — NOW!!!

      Why are people in Ontario not revolting against this? This homosexual is making $10,000 more in her salary since 2013 for doing what? Is it so she can shake her arms more? Is it so she (use the term loosely) can bankrupt Ontario faster? People in Ontario stand by and do nothing, shame on us.

      I am looking forward to the civil war. Since Ottawa is not acting to put these crooks in prison they can sit on the sidelines when this country finally comes to war. Between the corruption in govt, and the muslim colonization, this day is getting closer.

        And when we win (‘cuz lefties don’t know how to fight), show them no mercy… Kill them all for their treason.

    Wynne is the reason Harper will win in Ontario.

    • J. C.

      I hope you’re right.

    Anything that Wynne utters from her pie hole just leads me to my fall back phrase dealing with anything she does, “What a Cunt”.
