Trudeau and the premiers robbing us blind

The more Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canada’s premiers talk about climate change — as they did Monday in Ottawa — the further away they drift from reality.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley, for example, describes the $3 billion-a-year carbon tax she just announced for her province, which she says will cost the average Alberta family about $500 a year, as “revenue neutral.”

Either she doesn’t understand what revenue neutral means, or she’s just making it up as she goes along.

      not in this tyranny they don’t – we are just revenue tools, aka slaves

  • mauser 98

    they want slaves in poverty
    they want slaves to serve the Apparatchik

    And luckily there aren’t more-pressing international matters happening, say today.

  • The Left has succeeded in taking the most inane, the most abstract, the most beyond-human-control phenomenon — the weather — and hypnotized the populace into believing that it is something that humans can absolutely control. Through a tax scheme yet! Do these scam artists actually expect us to believe that Mother Nature pays attention to our tax schemes?

    It’s as if the weather were as predictable as a “Pizza Pizza” 30 minute delivery guarantee — if it doesn’t arrive on time your pizza is free. Except there’s no “free pizza” here if the politicians are wrong — everybody pays but nobody gets a refund.

      It distracts the idiots from noticing they won’t fix any real problems.

      Pardon me for breathing.

    An alleged conservative supports this.

    That link makes for some disturbing reading from a guy who otherwise gives sensible advice on personal finance.

    • I only got part-way through the article before I exited. As soon as he said “we have already harvested 70% of our fish…” I knew he was off track. What does over-harvesting 70% of our fish have to do with climate change? Over-harvesting has to do with over-harvesting — it’s a provable and measurable man-made activity, and concrete measurable things can be done to control it.

      Not so the climate. You can’t control the climate. With one exception: indoors. I can control the indoor temperature through my furnace or air conditioner. I can control the indoor humidity through my humidifier or dehumidifier. I can keep it from raining in my living room by making sure I have a roof over my head. I can keep the wind from blowing through my kitchen by closing my window. I can keep the sun out of my bedroom by closing the curtains. I can control practically all of the climate variables indoors that are impossible to control outdoors.

      And they think they can control the outdoor climate GLOBALLY? Will somebody please get these people some psychiatric help.

    Who’s the little blonde fella beside Turdo?

      That guy is one of his fart sniffers.

      • Clink9

        A very large club he belongs to.

        • mobuyus

          I have a club I would like them to join. old Louisville Slugger.

          • Clink9

            Yes! I have my old St. Marys all the daughter’s boyfriends know about.
            Batter up.

          • mobuyus

            Batter up indeed!

    • WalterBannon

      that’s an unindicted felon

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      I was thinking about “her” today. Is that hairdo and make-up actually perceived as attractive to her similarily-inclined? It’s just the amateur psychiatrist in me wondering…

      • Clink9

        She’s the wannabe guy in the relationship. Shudder.

  • WalterBannon

    This is just one of the reasons why we need a civil war

  • mobuyus

    When all these assholes go to their gay little climate party in France is there any way to disallow their return?

    • Martin B

      If Islamic State blows them all up, it will be a service to humanity.

      • V10_Rob

        That’s horrible!… In theory.

        • Justin St.Denis

          Theoretically speaking, I agree with you. Theoretically.

          • Raymond Hietapakka

            Practically speaking, sure, it all could make sense, in practice…
            a slam-dunk cinch for the whole World…but the concept will never fly in the West because they won’t create a theory around it…

      • Raymond Hietapakka

        Tremendous irony…their greatest supporters.

      • Clausewitz

        Well shit. Now I am truly conflicted.

      • El Martyachi

        Pretty sure the standing AGW theories are a blasphemous affront to the will of Allah…

  • pike bishop

    I was told the GST was going to be revenue neutral too. If it was so neutral why did the left make such a stink when it was lowered from 7% to 5%? If it was so neutral it should make no difference what the rate is.

    • Raymond Hietapakka

      “Revenue Neutral”….means you’re out-of-gear, fundswise…coasting for as long as you can on what you manage to scrounge together. Hill ahead? You ain’t going nowhere, pal.

    A gathering of con artists and their allied rent seeking thieves.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Theoretically speaking, Trudeau and co. are a band of brigands bent on Canada’s destruction. Pragmatically speaking, we must restrain ourselves. Spiritually speaking, we can all pray for an Ebola outbreak at the Paris climate conference.

    I read somewhere that Le Petit Dauphin’s Riding in Montreal has the most number of the poorest people in all of Queebec. In other words, no #1 …a #10. What’s he doing for his people?
