Mulcair’s carbon confusion

NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair, the man most likely to become the next prime minister of Canada if it’s not Stephen Harper, either doesn’t understand what carbon pricing is, or is pretending he doesn’t. Either prospect is alarming.

This was revealed during the Maclean’s leaders’ debate Thursday when moderator Paul Wells asked him whether internalizing the costs of the Energy East oil pipeline, which Mulcair has said is necessary for the project to become viable, would raise gasoline prices at the pump.

The honest answer to that question is, “yes”.

    Did anyone else think that Mulcair looked like an angry squirrel during the debate?

      That squirrel is a million times more cute than the Muckhair beast.

    Besides Mr. Mulcair’s misleading and misrepresentation of facts, there is this disconnect between his eyes wide open (all the time), his scruffy beard and his smile. That eery smile. Did I tell you, it kept me awake at night? and not for a good reason. In addition; why nobody is talking about his French citizenship, which he APPLIED for, and swore an oath of loyalty to France. And which, he is prepared to forgo if elected. What kind of scoundrel does this?

      Watch for the beard to grow and meet his eyebrows, a clear sign of impending insanity. He may be shaving those parts already. He knows that I know he knows I know.

    Mulcair is undoubtedly a hard core communist trying to hide his true intentions. A lot of dippers don’t even try to hide it. There is no point in trying to honestly debate issues with them. Treat them with the disdain and revulsion followers of the most vile murderous political philosophy ever devised deserve.

    Somebody needs to take Tommy boy up north and out of his Urban Elitist environment and introduce him to the world’s third largest Carbon sink. It’s called the Canadian wilderness.
