ZETTEL: Is Canada gearing up for a “Carbon Tax election”?
In 2018, it may be hard to imagine a federal election fought on a single issue.

Catherine McKenna Busted Spreading Fearmongering Fake News About ‘Climate’ Deaths
“Environment Minister Catherine McKenna’s claims of climate change fatalities are contradicted by new data. McKenna repeatedly pointed to a surge in deaths in a July heat wave in Québec as proof of the need for a national carbon tax. Figures show the death rate in July was the same as last year.
The Québec Institute of Statistics said deaths across the province for the month totaled 5000, the same as the identical period last year. Deaths for July were comparable to the ten-year average and below a peak of 5,072 deaths in July 2010, when average temperatures were two degrees cooler.”
