Justin Trudeau silent about China’s massive “carbon footprint”

Rebel Staff
 

Justin Trudeau is in his favourite foreign country, the dictatorship of China. How’s that going, besides all the photo ops? It’s tough to know, because he has only taken one question from Canadian media.

(If that was Stephen Harper, the CBC would be screaming about censorship, how Harper was becoming like the Chinese. But it’s Trudeau. So there’s lots of fashion shoots...)

China is the most polluted country in the world. They use a lot of coal. But hang on — isn’t that supposed to be the stuff that Justin Trudeau is against? He's demanding that coal-fired power in Canada be shut down, and he's about to put a huge carbon tax on Alberta.

China actually owns 10 per cent of the Northern Gateway Pipeline, and we know what Gerald Butts, Trudeau’s principal secretary, thinks about that. It will be interesting to see who wins that tug of war — Butts, who is Trudeau’s best friend, babysitter, speechwriter and policy-whisperer. Or the men who really run things...

NEXT: Professor Charles Burton, Canada’s leading China hand, joins me with his analysis of Trudeau's trip.

THEN: Jordan Bateman, B.C. Federal Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, comes on to update us on the pivotal court case in that province between the teachers' union and the government. 

FINALLY: Your feedback to me about this week's shows!

@jason Hibbs . . . . so according to you and nutty wiki . . . 1.5 Billion create fewer carbon emissions than 35 Million . . . . LOL
Reality is . . . Canada because of it’s small population, vast greenery and area likely has ZERO CO2 emissions, in fact we are likely a “Net Carbon Sink” . . . Gorebull Warming stopped in 1998 . . .
Did you see the pix of the G20 city? You can hardly see the buildings less than a Km away . . .

Canada is just soooo screwed . . . we are ALL Ontar-i-owe now ! ! !

The fag boy pm has been bought and paid for – of that you can be certain.

Who is paying him off? The UN? George Soros? Does Trudeau have a secret bank account in the Cayman Islands, Switzerland, Isle of Mann or one of the other 60 around the world? If the accounts are secret how do we know he is being paid under the table?

Good points – call it a gut feel – and it is not always cash – there are other considerations.

The lying mulroney pm took cash and finally got caught out years after the fact – so it does happen.

I figure the fag boy is bought and paid for – consideration or cash – no matter.

He bows to the chinese and spits on Canadians

That is what happens when you elect an entitled. arrogant, spoiled and smug leader who has never had to struggle to do much more than to get some cash from a trust account.

Jason Hibbs they sill produce way more carbon than us. That is the problem. Per capita means little when dealing with that many people. Canada produces very little carbon in comparison.

Andrew are you the official Liberal caucus interpreter for the intellectually mute PM?
I don’t need apologist translations when his actions speak volumes.

@jason Hibbs
Per Capita means absolutely nothing when you read things like this:

As you can see, TYPE of pollution matters greatly.

Yep, China is fucked. They can’t even eat their own food, their lands are so polluted. Good thing we Canadians have such good quality control on foods that we import. Yep, good liberal food inspectors on a government payroll.

China is literally trying to poison us on purpose. No exaggeration.
commented 2016-09-03 14:46:19 -0400
Trudeau very well knows that China’s a big contributor, it’s why he’s endorsed China signing the deal. He doesn’t really need to openly state that, it’s implicit.
commented 2016-09-03 14:31:33 -0400
Hibbs – did you know china is the number one emitter of particulate toxins? People in Beijing wear masks the smog is so bad and the life expectancy of a Beijing traffic cop is 40.

Chasing CO2 around is a f’n distraction and a free pass for the polluting transnationals who move to China get with their polluting production facilities
commented 2016-09-03 14:02:05 -0400
David.

Look up what “per capita” means..

The fact is, “per person”, Canadians are much worse polluters than the Chinese.

Are you refuting that? If yes, what is your souce?
commented 2016-09-03 13:19:21 -0400
JASON HIBBS:What a crock of bull shit. Compare the populations. They produce a lot more human shit than we do. Should we compare that. And on a pollution scale who ranks worse between our two countries? What a feeble ATTEMPT at an argument.No problem though, JT will see to it that we end up broke, then what?

Dump JT, opera star and the two witches

If Redjac is so “free?” in China he can tell us all about how last week he went down to the Bejing cathedral for mass before he went out for a went back on line running his Chinese news website that is critical of government policy.

Yeah sure, poser
commented 2016-09-03 11:29:50 -0400
Hey Redjac I call bullshit. You say China is more free than canada? Your either a liar,a commie, or a idiot. Maybe all three. How bout you speak out against the government there and see what happens. Maybe you should try to protest there and see what happens. just because you can get a burger you think it’s the end of communism. Even the reds like the green. One thing for sure if you like it so much stay there. Moron.

Trudeau’s kickback from blocking oil in Canada is substantial.

Trudeau gets no cash to fight with China, and so Trudeau does what he knows best – gets on his knees and starts “blowing for cash”.

I bet you had an errection when you typed that!
commented 2016-09-03 09:00:22 -0400
It is ironic. China’s carbon footprint dwarf’s Canada’s. If man made global warming is for real, as long as they continue in their ways Canada’s efforts to control CO2 emiissions are meaningless. If Junior really wanted to fight man made global warming and save the planet he would fearlessly confront the Chinese instead of virtue signalling here in Canada.
commented 2016-09-03 08:12:01 -0400
56 deals worth only 1.2 billion ? And all are for education? So much for a govt. of openness and transparency. Bet the trade deal is in China’s favor too! I wonder what Mr. Harper is thinking?
commented 2016-09-03 08:01:17 -0400
One of the very few things you can post in Quebec in English is a political statement. You can write that the Quebec government is composed of jackasses or its your opinion that they are corrupt bigots. You can’t do that in any language in Shanghai.

But onto something more real, sort of. Baby Doc won’t say anything about human rights, Canadians held on trumped up charges, the burning of dung and wood for heating and cooking, or coal fired energy. It would be imposing our standards on another nation, or simply that he hasn’t figured these things out. He needs his brother Sasha and master puppeteer Butts to tell him what to say and think. OK. What to say. Thinking is another realm for him.

After all, its 1976… to him.

Chinese dictatorship is exactly what idiot boy wants.Him and his circle get richer and the rest of us slaving away for them. Thanks a lot liberal and ndp voters.

Redjac Arbez that is a hug crock of you know what. And the Quebec language laws are also a form of dictatorship. Oh and about those harvested organs, not in Quebec.
commented 2016-09-03 03:45:36 -0400
" ….the dictatorship of China"? Now you are spreading false information. There is no dictator in China. It is a one party system. You are not being honest. How do I know this? I have been living in Shanghai for over 18 years…..I have more freedom here as a native English Speaker than I do in my home province of Quebec!!!!! Dictatorships do not provide freedom. Here I am free to go anywhere
and do anything I choose to do (as a law abiding person). There are no such things as “language police” and foolish language laws as there are in Quebec. Clean up your own back yard instead of trashing someone else’s. In China I can post a sign reading “Joe Shmo’s Pet Shop” in English only
without consequences (other than loss of business because some may not be able to read English).
I do not have that freedom (of language) in Quebec!!! Where are my “free rights” back home?

If China was under a dictatorship I seriously doubt that there would be so much capitalism as there is here. All the big guns like KFC, McDonald’s, Gucci, Prada, Domino’s Pizza and Coke to name a few are here and are here to stay. The days of communism and dictators are long gone. As a Rebel supporter I must say that you people need to pick up the ball that you dropped on this one.
