“has anyone heard about this 20 billion dollar carbon tax that the NDP are going to dump on us
if they get into power?” Doubtful we will ever hear anything from the Socialist Media on this topic. Nothing to see here folks, move along! They’ve also been pretty quiet about Trudope’s plans for a Carbon Tax as well as telling the Globe and Mail his plans to raid pension plans to finance Lieberal spending should they win Gov’t.

Sorry to hear about the PAC, we really do need a group to offset Engage Canada and their vindictiveness.
Read an article by Joe Oliver in todays Sun, has anyone heard about this 20 billion dollar carbon tax that the NDP are going to dump on us

double dipping…

Latest from Bengaziegate It turns out that Hillary’s e’mails that she handed over to congress were not complete. Remember she said I’ve handed over ALL the e mails that I have. It turns out while congress was investigating another case they found e mails that were not included with the ones she sent to congress.
Now under the laws of the United States she is in contempt of congress and should be sent to jail for 10 years. NOW after hearing this how could any person who calls himself or herself an American if they vote for Hillary the old grand mother.

Unlike you we supporters of THE REBEL are looking for real news not like you who is looking for glitz. Just think if THE REBEL were granted some chump change (1.3 billon) like the CBC, THE REBEL could do the news from the moon.
Who cares about the back drop or cameras NEWS IS NEWS and COMMENTS ARE COMMENTS.

Disappointed that the PAC shut down, it is badly needed to counter the lies and misinformation from the Big Union PaC funded with forced dues. I suppose low information voters will eat up their propaganda rather than checking out facts.

Why are you concerned, Terry. I thought you didn’t like this site or the “dullard” conservatives that post here. :)

Well, I’m glad they finally bought a Lavalier for Emily – it’s nice hearing her voice NOT sounding as though she was recorded in a wind tunnel. Now, do you suppose you could spring for either a reflector or a fill light? C’mon, kids, if you’re seriously looking for corporate sponsorship, try to look a little better than home video.
