Why Trudeau's carbon tax won't work: Canadians have no viable alternative to natural gas & oil for heating

Dr. Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Business came on last night's show to explain why Justin Trudeau's carbon tax won't work the way the Liberals think it will: that is, as a way to push consumers to switch to "greener" energy sources.

Transportation? Will Justin bin ELBOW stop flying all over the place on Government jets with all his in-laws and friends? Somehow, I doubt it. This tax is nothing more than a screwing over of the Canadian Public for more revenue!

Need we say it again?… There are parts of Canada where “clean energy” hydro electric power, given a God blessed geography, should be cheap but, is, or not, given political interference… Newfoundland an Labrador got “snookered” years ago by having to ship their output through Quebec… Quebec does have power producing dams of their own; ditto Ontario… Niagara Falls being the most blatant example of natural hydro generation being subverted for political reasons because ALTERNATING CURRENT production – that humble socket in everybody’s wall for all of the world – was pioneered in Niagara Falls by George Westinghouse applying the genius of “immigrant boy” Nikola Tesla… British Columbia also has mighty rivers running to the sea and produces cheap hydro… But those natural gifts aside, Canadians must recognize that natural gas and oil will power must of us for the foreseeable future, while bird and bat killing wind farms are an obscene and temporary experiment into unreality…

Jr needs to spend the next 6 months in a place like Hanna Ab or Leader Sk where trees (and by extension firewood) are scarce and heat the place without coal or gas. And to follow through to get his head space back to what everyday people deal with, cut the electricity off for 10 hrs a day because that’s what it will be like when the coal power goes offline.

“If anyone could switch to electric heating, especially in Ontario, it would be just as expensive as oil or gas heating making the Ontario liberal government the winner. Get rid of all liberal governments. They are more like a communist government, making them illegal and treasonous in a democracy. This would then make the conservative party the strongest.”

Kathy… This would not work either because we would be reduced to only one government not providing an option of checks and balances in the government and would quickly
de-evolve into socialist Marxism.

After your drivel, Mr. Lee, it appears to be clear that you have bought into the fraud, as well. The Carbon Tax scam is all about enslaving, raping and pillaging productive tax paying consumers for the purposes of statist megalomaniac POWER and CONTROL. This is the biggest scam ever devised to create a massive revenue stream for the purpose of elitist control, enrichment and the continued development of a statist subordinated dependent and enslaved populace. Global hardcore communism run by elitists is the utopian goal.

These Marxist treasonous traitors are hell-bent on annihilating Freedom, Liberty, Sovereignty, Peace and Self-determination.

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”- Winston Churchill

It will continue for more than four years because there is no alternative to run against Trudeau that has any credibility..
I don’t believe in coincidences and I believe that Harper on the next election would have slapped the bitch right out of the Liberals however… I believe he was told to retire under the threat of consequences by TPTB leaving the PCs at the federal level basically dead in the water with no leadership
and leaving the door open for another Trudeau administration bringing us ever closer to ruin.

Dr. Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Business – such bullshit.

Trudeau butchered the oil and natgas industries and the stupid fuck lost his tax revenue to pay those government lumps they call workers.

So now PIG-FART Trudeau has to financially rape Canadians – again – to cover the loss – any old stupid fucking tax will do.

And if you bury the tax so consumers can’t see it, it works even better for PIG-FART Trudeau.

This the fucking moron you chose Canada to run Ottawa – and the financially raping shall continue for another four years – enjoy it Canada.
