Four oil tycoons signed a secret deal with four environmental lobbyists -- and that's why Alberta has a carbon tax.
There was a great story in today’s Financial Post, by Claudia Cattaneo:
"Secret deal on oilsands limits divides patch."
The story is one TheRebel.media touched on immediately after Rachel Notley unveiled her massive carbon tax in Alberta.
At the time, I couldn't figure out why two major oil companies would show up for her announcement.
Now we're finding out why, and the situation raises a lot of legal and ethical issues.
This deal isn't just about the destruction of Canada’s great economic engine, it’s the formalization of bribes and pay-offs to lobbyists and insiders.
We have to fight back, now more than ever. Please join our fight at StopTheCarbonTax.com.
My guest tonight is one of my favourite writers: David Goldman, better known as "Spengler," who writes about foreign affairs for the Asia Times Online and elsewhere.
We talk about the Paris terror attacks, whether or not we should cheer Putin's attacks on ISIS and more.
It's a thought provoking conversation with one of the clearest, most insightful thinkers around!
