Call it cap-and-fraud

As Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the premiers jostle on what carbon pricing in Canada will look like and how much it will cost us, a modest proposal.

We should rename the carbon pricing scheme known as cap-and-trade — which Quebec already has and Ontario will have next year — by what inevitably happens under it.

That is, cap-and-fraud.

Justin Trudeau - Flipping Pancakes is a job he may actually qualify for.

    Charles Mackay (Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds) would have had a field day with this one. A modern-day Mackay would be burned alive at the stake for his/her heresy.

          Tell me, Maux, would you rather the building get paid for by our tax dollars, or get paid for out of some rich guy’s pocket? Of course, you probably think those are both the same thing.

      Another delusional Harper-hater: long on opinions, short on facts.

    The South Australian Government been forced to beg fossil fuel operators to bring mothballed plants back online, to contain wild swings in electricity spot price caused by unstable renewable production, prices which last month peaked at $14,000 / MWh – up from more normal prices of $100 / MWh which prevailed before political favouritism towards renewables messed up the market.

    Australia is bleeding jobs to east Asia.

    No public outcry about a tax on a tax here in Ontario. HST on carbon tax. Because we love our socialists here in Sunny Ways Ontario.

  • It’s all a money grab that voters wanted.

      You can call it a tax or you can call it “cap and trade”, I call it jizya.

    If this is who the Conservatives will have as a leader to run against Trudeau in the next election they are in big trouble. https://twitter.com/bcbluecon/status/757298364924825600

    If this is who the Conservatives will have as a leader to run against Trudeau in the next election they are in big trouble. Remember Elizabeth May said a murderous terrorist had more class then “entire fucking (CPC) cabinet”

      Elizabeth May and Donald Trump were born eight years and 100 miles apart.
