Murray Edwards, the Calgary oilsands tycoon, is reportedly moving to London, England, for tax reasons. Remember when he shocked the province by endorsing Notley’s carbon tax. That’s like a chicken endorsing Colonel Sanders!
We soon found out that Edwards company, CNRL, had negotiated huge subsidies in Notley's carbon tax scheme — his company won’t be out a dime. They might even make money off of it. That’s how Notley got Edwards on board. The carbon tax will just be for the little people.
And as for the hike in personal tax rates that Notley’s bringing in? Well, you can’t tax it, if it’s in London.
I don’t blame Murray Edwards for saving himself millions of dollars a year. But I do blame him for selling the rest of us out.
