Wynne’s climate cult

Watching Premier Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals ram their ill-advised cap-and-trade legislation through Queen’s Park, it’s easy to understand every other fiscal disaster they’ve inflicted on taxpayers from eHealth, to the Green Energy Act, to Ornge, to cancelled gas plants.

At some point, the Liberals come to believe their own bafflegab, oblivious to reason and logic.

Wynne and Climate Change Minister Glen Murray seem not to have grasped that cap-and-trade isn’t an environmental policy, but an economic one.

Cap-and-trade’s only difference from a carbon tax is that it raises the price of virtually all goods and services, rather than the taxes on them, pouring into government coffers by the Liberals’ own estimate, $1.9 billion annually to start, beginning Jan. 1.
