Are “sneaky” Liberals trying to find a way to carbon-tax your fireplace?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Catherine McKenna wants to know where you’re getting this year’s Yule log!


According to the Federal Government contracts and procurement website, the Environment Ministry is looking for someone to:

“Develop a quantitative analysis of the proportions of firewood used for residential heating that come from different land uses, including forest producer associations on private lands, forest producers on public forests, woodlot owners, farmers, maple syrup producers, professional arborists and commercial retail suppliers.”

A nationwide study into how you got your winter stockpile of firewood?

The only reason the government would want to know who is using firewood for home heating, and where they’re getting their firewood, is to find a way to carbon tax it.

Montreal and Vancouver are already fighting a war against this cozy form of winter heat. Vancouver is moving toward an official fireplace registry, and Montreal is demanding the removal of 50,000 existing wood burning appliances by 2020.

If only these two cities felt as strongly about the raw sewage they dump into their waterways as they do about those who want to run a few cords through the fireplace to save on their gas bills.

When Canadians try to make some lifestyle changes to avoid paying the carbon tax, the Liberals will still try to find a way to charge them for their money-saving efforts in using less natural gas.

This is Canada, and no one escapes untaxed!

Liza R… Same here about power outages..the liberlist globalist goons/goofs are friggin desperate to find money for their “budgets balance themselves” and “irregular Border crossers” and for their own paychecks, payout’s to Iran, SA and such.

Where I am, a wind storm can knock the power out for a day or two before it is back up. Three days is the longest I have ever experienced. I would literally freeze and have pipes freezing up if I had no wood stove to fire up in an outage. I would have to go outside and sit beside a campfire, and I’d still be burning wood.
Too many bureaucrats with no meaningful job have to fabricate all sorts of nonsense. We need smaller government.

With Bernier jumping into the game the other small parties have even less chance than they had before. Unless Scheer stops allowing himself to be bullied, I will probably land with Bernier and live with a minority Lib. gov.
Things have to change, and change BIG. That isn’t going to happen with Scheer, and if he gets in, he won’t be going anywhere, and we will still be in this boat with no one who has our backs at the helm.

As usual Climate Barbie is not clear on the concept. Does she think people in rural Canada are going to keep warm with solar panels? Gas is already too expensive to use all the long winter without a wood supplement. I get mine from a guy who gets a permit to clear standing dead and dead falls. I think this is a part of a plan to force us out of rural areas.

Everyone who burns wood knows that there is a way to burn with minimum exhaust. Not to mention the fact that the new stoves make a clean burn even easier to obtain.

Its a pretty hard thing to hide from the government. With satellite imaging they can see your chimney’s and stove pipes on top of your house. My property is well treed, making a google earth visual difficult, sooooo, they had a guy come out with a camera to take pictures of my house and shop. Both of which have wood stoves.
It could get ugly.

Paul Miller..I agree with you totally. But..Bernier has the spotlight shining on him and his Party..Just a suggestion…if the splinter Party’s all get together and talk and join with Bernier..wouldn’t that be more realistic to destroy the existing elite establishment?

Have the govt. tax the provinces on the size of forest fires every year, and economically, Canada should be out of the woods.
commented 2018-09-15 13:26:46 -0400
The emerging Trudeau – Butts dictatorship. The next census will ask if you have a fireplace so they can tax it!
commented 2018-09-15 13:12:46 -0400
Like I would never register a gun, I would never register my fireplace. The Liberal lunacy is starting to get dangerous. I fear an armed response to liberal lunacy is in our future.

What’s next? Matches? Lighters? BBQ and fire pits?

All this in the name of carbon reduction? Yet, the federal government scrapped the public transit tax credit? I thought I was reducing my carbon out put by taking the bus.
commented 2018-09-15 10:19:39 -0400
Shrug. At least two-thirds of the electorate in our major cities routinely votes for politicians that subscribe to the catastrophic visions of AGW/extreme weather/species extinction…and the other third meekly sits and takes it.
commented 2018-09-15 04:55:05 -0400
Burning wood releases far more carbon than a vehicle burning gas.
commented 2018-09-15 04:53:51 -0400
How the hell would they know how much wood is cut or burned? Just another tax with no basis in reality.

Down below is all I hear from the trudeau Government.

Adding to my previous post, Canadians either don’t want to run for political office, or they are unaware of their political options. We have a chance to fight back against the globalist elites in Ottawa, but the new parties need you and me to raise awareness.

This constant erosion of our rights…not to mention our heritage, wealth, well being and our sovereignty…is a constant pushing of the envelope of our tolerance for their totalitarianism.
I say burn the scum at the stake as a sacrifice to their gods of Satan and Marxism and take back what is ours…
There is a political class that is connected with the 5 P Professionals – elitists – who are in control of our country – and destroying – everything in their path…Why are we allowing them to do this?
==============
I think the 4 major parties play on the same team. The only differences are their names and colors.

I lived in a rural area for a few years, and no one I knew would cut down a tree, as there are thousands that the wind knocked down beside the Highway or logging road.
By removing these fallen trees a person is helping out fire fighters by taking away ground fuel. Obviously by eliminating fireplaces, there will be more or larger forest fires.

Ron…..absolutely…up until three years ago my wood supplier was a guy who removed storm windfalls and stuff that HAD to go under power lines…and I prided myself in the fact I was burning “nusance wood”…and yes…there are times when a tree is a nusance (for as much as I love and hug trees).

He died …God rest his irrascable (had great stories to tell) Irish Traveller soul. The fellow I have now has his own wood lots and does contract removal on provincial forest managed lots……wood is a renewable resource….it’s like feeding dandelions to a rabbit….there is no danger of it not growing back faster than you or I could burn it….in fact the province of Nova Scotia meets a significant part of it’s electrical generation requirement by burning wood and slash “biomass”…no doubt they won’t be happy about this either.

Trudeau and climate bimbo should serve one humdinger of a carbon tax bill on British Columbia for the forest fires this summer….socking it to Alberta for the summer before won’t make any new enemies for that matter.

Let’s hope that people get so mad at the tax-and-squander Liberals that they’ll dump him in favour of an empty suit named Andrew Scheer.

Of course all of the native reserves north of 60 will get a race based exemption.

I said this a couple of years ago..not the exact words. The liberalist globalist freaks are probably working on a measuring type breathing/head device to strap on our heads..SO THEY CAN TAX THE FRIGGIN AIR THAT WE BREATHE!..

That does it…this winter I am going to burn old tires…go ahead and do a study on THAT.
commented 2018-09-14 19:49:16 -0400
Fireplaces are a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of trees burned in forest fires every year. Why not improve conditions to prevent and stop wild fires instead of onerous legislation that does nothing in the grand scheme of things but give the politicians some social justice brownie points?
commented 2018-09-14 19:30:58 -0400
I say screw up this registry, everyone should say they burn 1500 cords of wood…see how the Minister of AirMiles interprets that.
How the government thinks it can ban a heat source is beyond me….Canadian winters are nothing to scoff at. Ottawa is the coldest capital in the world.
