“Tone deaf” Trudeau overrides will of Canadians in “non-carbon tax compliant” provinces

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

After months of kicking the can down the road, the Liberals have finally announced their plan to cram a carbon tax down the throats of provinces that are opposed to one.


Their new scheme will force retailers to charge a carbon price to consumers in provinces that haven’t brought in their own carbon tax, or that don’t have a sufficiently whopping carbon tax, in what the Liberals call a “regulatory price on fuel.”

The new tax will be levied on gasoline, light fuel oil, natural gas, and propane — basically all the fossil fuels you need to stay alive.

And the Liberals have a formula for their carbon tax that they cribbed from Alberta premier Rachel Notley: Rebates!

Despite Notley’s rebates, the carbon tax remains universally disliked and consistently polls at around thirty per cent approval from the general public.

Albertans are smart enough to see through the bribe, and Canadians will too.

Watch as I show you the other times Trudeau followed Notley’s lead to very expensive consequences.

The federal Liberal plan to override the will of the provinces is a strangely timed move considering that more provinces are moving to the political right and away from increased taxes.

Trudeau has now damned himself to campaign on imposing a carbon tax on people who don't want one - now the majority of the country.

Even Notley wasn't tone deaf enough to do that.

I saw a petition for a carbon tax today. It says scientists reported that we have 12 years before catastrophic climate change. 12 years from now will be the year 2030, and the globalist United Nations have Agenda 21 / Agenda 2030 plans against humanity. That’s why they’re claiming catastrophic climate change in 12 years. It’s all about their globalist agenda.

More than 15,000 Canadians signed this petition. I wonder if they understand that everything will cost more for them with a carbon tax in place. What do these people think a carbon tax will accomplish besides shutting down our industries? Someone said this, but it’s worth repeating…

Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. It’s essential to life on Earth. Plants need it so they can produce oxygen for us, and more carbon dioxide is good for the planet. It makes plants grow faster, and it makes Earth greener.

“We’ll be much better off when the Liberals are gone.”
- JIM REINHART

Not if the CPC get elected.

If he sends me $300.00, I’ll send it to the first political party that promises to eliminate it.
- JIM REINHART

Four parties say they will eliminate the carbon tax.
1) NCA (National Citizens Alliance)
2) CNP (Canadian Nationalist Party)
3) PPC (People’s Party Of Canada)
4) CPC (Conservative Party of Canada)

I wouldn’t trust the Conservatives. Andrew Scheer campaigned against the carbon tax during the leadership race, and then voted for it.

I think mankind is just fine. We don’t need liberals changing our language.

Why not just invoke the notwithstanding clause and give Trudeau the finger?

The Liberals and the NDP both seem to believe that if there is a problem, imagined or otherwise, the solution is to tax it. Period. And then smile at us while saying, “Problem solved!”

Our fearless, dumb as a rock PM, Baby Doc Trudeau with his equally failed intelligence cabinet working feverishly for… not us. GDP is at 1.6%? Someone is lying.

Then there is Andrew Sheer. Not much better.

BTW, CO2 is not pollution. If mankind (peoplekind?) never existed the global temperature would still rise and fall. No matter what one believes, its that big burning mass of hydrogen called the Sun that controls Earth’s temperature, along with clouds, tilt of the planet, energy cycle of the Sun, variations in orbit, the drag of the moon on on planet Earth, et cetera; not a "carbon tax”.

The production of spirits and wine releases a lot of CO2. Why doesn’t our far-from-sober PM carbon tax that?

There is NO form of market failure, however egregious, which is not made worse by the political interventions intended to fix it.

He is a deluded, bald faced liar. Continuously saying this is what Canadians want. Refuses to say that this is only what a tiny minority of “carbon” and “AGW” alarmists want. And, could you please Justin, tell me and all of Canada just how your carbon tax will stop all of the ‘climate change’ alarmists from driving their cars, heating their homes, and flying to climate change conferences all over the globe. And, would CBC stop shilling for the PM and climate change Barbie, and actually start representing the views of ALL Canadians, rather than your select groups of activists, liberals, socialists, and climate fear mongers.

This is actually a Litmus test of his ability to run a country.
when the Fraser Institute say that a carbon tax is nothing more than a cash grab and that any climate change initiative that doesn’t include China and India is useless.
This clearly demonstrates his inability to govern the country and should be removed immediately, put under arrest and made to undergo psychiatric evaluation.
How Canadians ever put this MORON in Office is beyond comprehension.

20 years is the life expected from solar panels and the people that put them up are not on the hook to take them down . That also includes wind mills . Oh so green when they turn to garbage . At least the birds will have some where to nest instead of being chopped up . I’m sure the coyotes are enjoying the free lunch .
The green energy money would have been better spent on Niagara falls .
commented 2018-10-24 08:23:04 -0400
This is all about promoting Trudeau/Wynne/Butt’s version of “big oil” aka “green energy”. All their buddies invested in “green energy” and now they want their payback, i.e. trend people towards using electricity. Ironically, because of their dumb policy decisions in th first place, is the reason people restricted their electricity usage, leaving us with a glut that we sell at a loss.

Trugrope’s “Carbon Tax” is just another revenue stream for the corrupt Lieberal Party to waste on their own treasonous agenda.

Trugrope’s departure from politics is long overdue folks. He must be stopped.

“Jamie, when he hears about it, he will probably pee his pants in fear that his constituents might want his to do something about stopping the carbon tax. "

You got that right, PETER. But to be fair to piss-willy Scheer, practically every other large “C” Conservative leader in the Country is in the same boat. They have all done the seemingly impossible: simultaneously painted themselves into opposite corners on this anthropogenic climate change apocalypse crap.

he is a pathological liar and now promises the money will come back to canadians and sadly they believe him! Well , answer this for me then, where has all the money gone from this scheme so far?? Let me tell you. It has gone into LIBERAL COFFERS, ISLAMIC COUNTRIES, THE U.N. AND OF COURSE HIS POCKETS AND THAT OF HIS INVADINGNEW CANADIANSWHILE CANADA AND WE CANADIANS ARE LEFT OUT AND GIVEN THE MIDDLE FINGER!
What is it going to take for canada to stand up to this bastard and bring him down before he has finished destroying us and the former canada?
His citizenship needs to be revoked, his assets seized and then permanently DEPORTED to the biggest islamic third world hole on the planet along with all the illegal/criminal/terrorist/parasitical trash he has brought and allowed in!
WE WILL NOT SURVIVE ANOTHER TERM WITH HIM SO IF YOU ARE ALL SICK OF FOOD, MEDICATIONS, HEALTH CARE, A PLACE TO LIVE, HEAT, FREEDOM, LIFE AND SO ON, THEN HE IS YOUR ‘,MANNEXT ELECTION- that is of course if he even bothers to call one as he is supreme leader and has vowed not to step down even if voted out- which is pretty remote given the fact the millions he has brought here illegally over the past 3 years will all be voting and they won’t be voting for canada or anything canadian other than all the perks, money, health care, housing, freedoms, rights and so on afforded them in what used to be our country and with our money and resources!
canadians are like trained seals with trudeau your master ! he is a criminal, thug, jihadi, liar, thief, tyrant, clown and a sociopath who has destroyed HUNDREDS OF YEARS BY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO BUILD THIS WHICH USED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST COUNTRIES ON THE PLANET, NOW NOTHING MORE THAN A THIRD WORLD ISLAMIC WELFARE SEWER!

Isn’t this AWESOME! Little rich boy is going to tell the rest of Canada to bite the bullet. We are all bad and ruining the planet and he is going to put us in our place. Billions of dollars for revenue Canada to decide what they will do with. Forget about people finding it more difficult everyday just to make their bills. Forget about families. The biggest joke is they HAVE NO PLAN as of yet. Trudeau wants your money, and will decide later on how to save the glaciers, with your tax money. This is the biggest theft since the income tax was “temporarily” introduced. So Trudeau will give back 90% of the money the first year? A little bird tells me that would stop the next year and we will be totally hosed serving the Canadian Government like good little slaves. Carbon Taxes are a complete farce and a joke. If you are stupid enough to believe tax money will change the climate, I have a bridge for sale. Carbon dioxide is necessary for life and the higher the carbon the faster the plant production and the more fertile the planet. Antarctica formerly had the climate of New Zealand. Maybe it will again someday. The temperature of the planet has fluctuated greatly over thousands of years, we are but a speck in time. How arrogant these people are to claim they have ultimate knowledge of where the climate is heading. There has been unusual climate events going back a very long ways. They have found woolly mammoths with grass frozen in their mouths that seemed to have been flash frozen hundreds of thousands of years ago, explain that? I remember the ice age scare in the 70’s. Trudeau is an arrogant fool and a thief. He wants your hard earned money. He wants your blood. Gee I wonder if his buddy George Soros has anything to do with this? They both have stated publicly their admiration for the way people are handled in communist countries. There are different ways to control a society. The best way to control people is for them to have the illusion of freedom, they will work in happy ignorance of their slavery, hoping one day for that lottery ticket that will never come. Stand up my friends. Your slavery or your freedom rests on the edge of a knife and I bleed for all my fellow Canadians. Do you not see the working poor in the grocery stores? They are a direct result of carbon taxes and poor leadership and politicians who just want the party to go on for them while the rest suffer. Let them eat cake indeed, remember how that ended?

Here in Alberta we’ve had this carbon tax bs now for a year,any one with half a brain knows the rebates they promise is a joke. The other thing they are always yapping about is all the good jobs going green will create-really are you kidding me it’s the absolute opposite,the investment we’ve lost,and small businesses shutting down is crazy.Nisku industrial park is one of largest in North America,take a drive through and look at all the empty shops and yards that are empty,wasn’t that way before all this climate change crap happened.I heard a report out today that said after the number of years that BC has been on this carbon tax program,their emissions continue to go up year after year regardless. Nothing but a big SHAM!!!!

Pollution- not solution.
commented 2018-10-24 00:49:12 -0400
I listened on our local Winnipeg station to Jim Carr continually saying that people have to pay for their solution. I sent an e mail to the show’s host that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant and that it is a vital nutrient for plants and that we all breathe in oxygen and exhale CO. I said this idea of CO as a pollutant was Liberal BS. The host responded by telling me that most climate scientists would disagree and that it was not Liberal idea.

There is no hope.

I’m old enough to remember when in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, people used to “disagree” with politicians… But I have never, ever before seen the degree of naked “hate” for this pickle nosed Prime Minister and his childish socks and arrogant ways… It does not speak well for Canada’s future for years to come…

Lest we forget the expedition by the University of Rhode Island in the Canadian Arctic where their ship got stuck because of too much ice, in August of this year. If that’s an indication that the planet might be warming up to the tune of maybe a half degree in the next 100 years, well, blow me down, that’s quite a scientific prediction, wouldn’t you say & the left lap it up. Let me get this straight….. The gov’t knows better than me how to spend my own money, so I will pay more to fill up at the pump & then when I go buy my groceries that will cost me more also & everything else I buy just because they want me to, however, this won’t do anything for climate change, because well the climate is always changing, more or less according to what season we happen to be in, but when I file my taxes, I will get some kind of rebate for what I over spent after they made me spend it, which I can now spend the way I want, which I would have if they had left it alone in the first place. Does that make sense to anyone? No, Not to me either!!!!!!!

The sad truth is that people are blinded by bribes. “We’re getting FREE money,” they always answer. Trying to explain reality to these mental defectives is almost impossible. These are the same ones who fall for Ponzi schemes and other scams. All these dumbells see is the cheques being handed out. They can’t imagine all the government drones working to give them these cheques. Neither do they understand that NOTHING is free and there’s no free lunch. Their tiny minds are blown by these rebate cheques. These are the folks Liberals and NDP goons depend upon to keep their gravy train going.

I have to agree, if Goldisocks runs a campaign on him introducing a carbon tax it will be a tough sell.
