Cap and trade just a carbon tax

What does Climate Change Minister Glen Murray’s announcement Monday that Ontario sold out its first cap-and-trade auction of carbon credits mean to you?

It means Ontario businesses have just paid a new charge of $472 million to the Wynne government in a government-run quarterly auction of carbon permits to industry, through which the government hopes to raise $1.9 billion annually in new revenue.

That $1.9 billion annually will be paid for by all Ontarians, in the form of higher retail prices for most goods and services.

Simply put, Premier Kathleen Wynne has imposed a new $1.9 billion annual tax on all Ontarians.

    Do you know who is brokering or implementing this deal and how much skimming of the money goes to them? It would be interesting and informative to know.

      Quebec is involved…

    No surprise, governments are broke…same old, same old spin, lies…destroying future generations and they don’t care.

    Lies, spin, more lies, corruption, fraud, money laundering…the entire political system is a mess from the top down and the bottom up…the real question that should be asked but is never asked in the media is, who is not on the take in government?

    How do these people get re – elected? It’s obvious, take a close look at who votes for them.

    “We don’t want the party to end, the “free” trips, expense accounts…perks, gold plated pensions, dental, free this, free that…Yes indeed, see we in government, are all entitled to our entitlements folks and we can’t stop that, at least not until we retire. Our unions say so, it’s ours and we want it now…$$” Nice eh? See what working for government has become? Go look at all the debt mounting. Governments all across Canada, the US… have been on a hiring binge, a spending spree for decades now. Government = police, fire, hospitals, teachers, lawyers, crown corporations – Canada post, Hydro…= high salaries, bonuses, pensions, dental, perks… all out of control for decades now = More and more debt…making the connection yet?

    Decades of overspending…more and more debt, see what these people in government are doing to future generations? And they don’t care.

    Greed, greed and more greed… this is what runs Canada now. All government, all greed…every day…while the private sector gets gutted…thanks greedy public sector unions, scum of the earth, all of them… This is just a fact and it’s only gotten worse.

    Solution? Well only one folks – We need a new party, a new leader willing to deal with the facts, the truth for a change. We need a real fiscally conservative, common sense leader/party…. Things need to be cut, reduced and eliminated in all government, federal, provincial and local. Government is too big, intrusive, and they are accumulating too much debt, year after year after year. That’s right let’s get cutting non-essential services, expensive waste, bilingualism – (code for french), multiculturalism, phony rights departments…the charter, CBC, all this phony green nonsense, carbon taxes, cap and trade, equalization – (code for government money laundering)… all sorts of big government BS. The future is at stake here and no one is willing to deal with this, how sad, how pathetic, all of you clowns in government and the mainstream media.

    I have tar and feathers in the barn, if anyone wants to join me.

    And to think in the By-elections recently completed, the Liberals retained their seats. Canada is screwed if the population continues to elect Liberals of any kind!

    Sounds like a Fabian Socialist’s “Need more of other peoples money” scheme to me.

    I wish that Glen Murray would grease his butt and go back to Winnipeg for the pleasure of his friends. Oops; It gets cold there, the grease will freeze and penetration will be painful. As for her; I hope she bites her partner in the wrong place. Romance ended
