Most voters AGAINST Wynne's cap and trade when told THEY have to pay for it

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Guest host Jerry Agar has the story: "It turns out people are not stupid. I am talking about a poll just released that showed that when people looked at what a cap and trade program would actually cost them, they were against it.

Ordinarily, cap and trade is sold under the idea of making the polluters pay. People are almost always for saving the environment, if someone else pays for it.

But of course that isn’t how cap and trade works.

Forum Research informed people that they would be paying about $156 a year for the plan.

Phrased that way, 56 per cent of 1,097 randomly selected Ontario voters opposed Wynne’s cap-and-trade plan, with 28 per cent in support and 16 per cent undecided. And the true cost is no doubt going to be much higher.

So, armed with a cost estimate, people are against cap and trade, by two to one...

GUESTS: Bacchus Barua, Senior Economist, Fraser Institute, wonders if it is time to privatize our health care? And Lauren Southern on the latest feminist “controversy”: Justin Trudeau called female Olympains "girls."

FINALLY: I talk about Donald Trump's "apology" — will it hurt him?

‘Cap and Trade’ is favoured by Politicians because they see the direct correlation to Supply Management , which for most people would be the Dairy, Poultry and Egg and the TAXI industry. In each case the original rights to Produce are basically FREE. This creates a Black Market for the Lucky Few that got in at the start. It is almost like a Ponzi scheme . In agriculture , they legalized the Black Market for Quota , which could essentially put the Canadian taxpayer on the hook for over $30,000,000,000 at Black Market value. . Pretty crazy is it ? The Mafia charges you for their ‘protection’ by the week or month . The Taxi industry has people paying $ 3 or 4 hundred thousand for a plate that cost the original owner $100. They just didn’t legalise it. Uber came in and fixed them. They were getting slack,lazy, predatory and entitled. Now they are fucked. It is the frigging that model that the Cap and Trade people are using. Give the Carbon Credits Free at first and then let the legalized Black Market drive up the price. That is their HOPE of success. It is a crazy scheme . You can Control the number of cows or hens or taxis but cannot CONTROL the amount CO2 .

I know that the problems that wynne is creating is in Ontario..
The liberals and the NDP have always worked together in the past and the present to bring the citizens, the province, and the country to its knees… Therefore I feel the need to post this which I posted previously.

Wild Rose contact information 1888 262 1888.
Make the call and be an instrumental part of saving Alberta and ridding ourselves of the unbelievably parasitic NDP government for life.
We all have to become involved and we can no longer expect or hope that things will turn out well without our personal effort and involvement . We have all had a front row seat to see how that turns out when we don’t get involved personally.

Great show once again Jerry! You should get your own show on The Rebel, I really hope you consider that!

Random thought: Wynne likes to run the propaganda ad with Suzuki scaring kids with the lie they are going to have to fix the climate mess we are leaving them. No mention of the financial mess they are being left by these brigands and thieves.

Of course they are PO’d – but only when they find out.

But the average low information voter in Ontario is so out of touch and completely stupid – they had no idea.

Sitting at a table of people last Thursday night – 8 people there. Three had not heard of that little incident in Strathroy – you know – the one that made national headlines – yeah that terrorist incident.

That is how uninformed people are in many parts of Canada.

Never forget – Canadians as a whole are entitled, spoiled, arrogant and smug – stupid as hell and very, very low information about what happens outside the fence surrounding their back yard..

Is it me, or does this guest host guy have the exact same speaking style as Faith?

You are absolutely right Keith Barnes… But they cannot be shot they must be hung after a quick trial for treason.

Cameron Robock.. It’s because there’s enough people like you… 38%… The brought the existing nightmare into power.
And I guess everybody’s entitled to their opinion even you… What my daddy told me about opinions .
“opinions are just like asshole son.. everybody’s got one but some people just choose to wear it in the middle of their
forhead” and you Cameron are just that man.

It is just not her globalist policies that sicken me… I don’t even know this woman and when I see her face I feel like I need to have a shower..
The depths of her corruption are limitless, as limitless as the black pit that has consumed her soul.
What these globalist puppets don’t realize is that life is short and one day we must atone for our sins on the seat of judgment.
The worship of money is truly the route to the worst evil..

Jerry Agar has done a fantastic job this week. Biggest take away of the week? Canada contributes 0% Co2 to the atmosphere because 25% of our trees clean up the so called ‘problem’. I for one love the element Co2 and wish we produced more for the sake of our trees which I also love. So I thank the rest of the world for producing so much plant food that the other 75% of our trees can absorb their Co2 and become lush, strong and beautiful. Gods creation is so smart. To think a carbon tax will somehow improve it is laughable. A carbon tax is a tax on the air we breath and nothing more.

Problem is, a lot of the municipalities are being run by liberals as well, the double whammy is about to hit.
The new carbon tax will make a good partner to the VAT the city is allowed to charge me now.
I have read about several homes in rural Ontario not being able to pay their hydro bill and the amount of total arrears owed to the utility are doubling. All this with an expected rate hike (in some areas) later this week.
By the time Wynne gets through with Ontario, it’ll be begging for a global warming.

Cam-moron….spoken like a true leftist regressive fucktard.

Really Robock? During the election, Harper was named “Hitler” by your psychotic Lefty media. Oh wait!! You actually think that’s accurate – don’t you, don’t you!?!?! Tell us, what does it feel like to suffer Lefty psychosis? Hey, are you going to “self-depopulate” and “save the planet”

Chronic Condition is an excellent book that compares Canada’s health care to others around the world and how to fix it. It’s considered the bible of the industry.

Only the conservatives would blow something of JT’s to make it bigger than it was…in the news.

Wynne has to be the most perverted Gangster in this Country. Someone put her away, please. Of course I am talking Provincially, when it comes to the Feds, Trudeau has everyone beat but then I forget, he is mentally unstable.

Shoot the whole effin Rat Pack of them.

Great week. God bless. You should prove males are the stronger sex. Wrestle with Lauren, front stage

The only carbon cap I want is someone to develop away to make flexible carbon fiber baseball caps with the REBEL logo on it , kinda branded on a hot iron

Thanks for filling in JERRY, have a great weekend with your boys and girls
So us boys were girls at one time, and now the girls want to be slaves too - uh !!!

- The people of Ontario will pay dearly for this scam – which has already been a proven failure in California. This is why I’m soo pissed off at Patrick brown. Is he going to be able to market this truth to the people of Ontario when he supports a carbon tax?

- Politicians in Canada & their families should be forced to have the same health care as the rest of Canadians have (& pensions, etc.) No special treatment, no jumping the cue.

- What Trudeau said isn’t sexist by my standards. What he said is very sexist by the standards he pretends to have.

- The politically correct can never be appeased. People need to stop caving into them.

Bacchus makes a lot of sense to determine best practices by researching what is done in other jurisdictions. Kenney should connect with someone like Bacchus to develop a viable, saleable platform re health care as the current system is unsustainable.
