Are you ready to be "nudged" into being green? Here's what's coming

Brian LilleyArchive

With progressives in power across the country, we can expect a wholehearted embrace of the climate change agenda.

What does that mean for your life? In the first of a series, I explain what this means for your life in very concrete terms.

Are you ready to give up driving and meat?

Paul, I agree. Staff if you want my opinion, I vote ‘YES’ on the "like’ button.

SEAN PENSON commented 1 day ago – climate change is an invention to raise taxes.

climate change is made into an emotional issue so the lemmings ignore their dollars leaving their pockets.

you are either one of George Soros paid monkey’s or you are a typical gullible Canadian that believes what the government tells you.

Carbon taxes = socialists selling heaven and delivering hell.

Have fun with that BC.

Will 34 MORE years of climate action failure, delay and debate be enough to prove to you eager, fear mongering drama queens of climate blame “belief”; that science couldn’t be certain, of a CO2 ARMAGEDDON?
And this no matter how much you doomers want this misery for billions of innocent children to have been real and no matter how much you hissy fit hate conservatives. You climate cowards have goose stepped our children to your exaggerated greenhouse gas ovens for decades now begging who’s the real fear mongering neocon anymore?

Aside from the obvious thinly disguised mendacity in leveling a greater tax burden with no provable positive results/effect, the larger issue is in the ethical issue of government dictating personal choices and the end result of having these corrupt inept boobs regulating your food supply and your right to free mobility.
There is NO up side to these taxes and anyone who thinks there is is probably profiting directly from this banditry or too mentally deficient to make their own decisions.

Sean is lying when he says the carbon tax here in BC is popular. We have just gotten use to it is all.
commented 2015-11-13 14:22:09 -0500
Personally I will cut back on purchasing, driving etc. I hope the province is brought to it’s knees . I buy most things in the US now. Only a 20 minute drive for me. I drive a Diesel which gets 1100 Kim’s to the tank . I’m ready for them!
commented 2015-11-13 14:16:33 -0500
Sean Pension are you kidding. My daughter lives in BC and she hates the carbon tax. She spends over $20,000 a month on fuel in her business and begrudges evey dime. You did get rid of GST.

Lessons to learn from another country:

“The carbon tax lacked democratic legitimacy, hurt the Australian economy, and did nothing to address global warming. Good riddance, writes Sinclair Davidson.”,-no-gain-carbon-tax/5597614

“The carbon tax repeal legislation received the Royal Assent on Thursday, 17 July 2014 and the bills as part of this package are now law, with effect from 1 July 2014. Abolishing the carbon tax will lower costs for Australian businesses and ease cost of living pressures for households.”

Here’s a twilight zone moment in time 2013, Australian Liberal party arguing against Carbon Tax

Seems like the Canadian Liberals like learning things the hard way.

If we don’t learn from history, we are doomed to repeat it. Remember the Mayans? They perished because of their foolish notion that they could change the climate. All of their sacrifices didn’t do a thing; except kill virgins. I think trudy and boom-boom are trying to take us down that same doomed path. Oh, ya, don’t forget about all those euro-nutbags.

Just a thought; maybe their love of primitive culture ie. islam, is their motivation.

This is one of the most important videos ever made by the rebel. I really wish there was a part of this website that can keep this video prominently displayed, so that it does not get buried under new material. Keep up the good work.
commented 2015-11-13 01:16:01 -0500
We’ve had a carbon tax here in BC for about a decade, and it has proven very popular. The right leaning Gordon Campbell brought it in, and the BC Liberals were respected at least twice
commented 2015-11-12 23:32:13 -0500
Sean penson. We will see if you enjoy higher taxes and less wages or are you a welfare candidate. Also it’s funny you say the climate change tax aka carbon tax. You had no clue what it was really for until someone mentioned it on here. Because if you really knew all the higher taxes you would pay and lose on your pay cheque and be more broke now once implemented you wouldn’t of votes liberal. Because nobody works to give more money to the govenrment and you live poor. Unless your one unintelligent person. I’m thinking your more of the latter. The evidence is in your comments. You can’t teach stupid

In the clip at the start of the crowning, er swearing in, of the new government, was that Margaret Trudeau, front left, swooning over her little boy? The fawning CBC sickenly started off a story about the swearing in by Neil McDonald with “Well, that was all so earnest you almost expected to see cartoon bluebirds and bunnies appear the way they did in those old Disney movies, shyly returning our new prime minister’s love”.
commented 2015-11-12 22:04:11 -0500
Hey Libs, nudge your own ignorant ilk into whatever fantasies you like, but there is a fairly large section of the Canadian public that just isn’t going to buy into your AGW religion. Not gonna happen. We know about the falsified temperature data, produced by progressively eliminating cooler temperature data stations globally, that makes the global climate appear warmer every year than it actually is. We know that Joseph D’Aleo, founder of the Weather Network knows about it and has spoken out about it. The cat’s out of the bag, and ain’t goin’ back in. Con the ignorant, but we’re not acquiescing to the con. You can drag us along for the ride to economic ruin, but not willingly. That’s for the simple-minded fools who voted for you. We will continue to speak out even if you imprison us for it, as Suzuki wants. We know your values are corrupt and phony. We know who you really are. You are the betrayers of Canada.

The really great thing about a site like this, and SNN was, are all the links and other info and insights you can pick up in the Comments section. And this on top of the articles themselves.
The problem is, how does one find the time to read all of it?
I’d heard it before, but I didn’t know David Horowitz said “Inside every liberal is a totalitarian screaming to get out.” – see what I mean, I learn something every day…
commented 2015-11-12 20:36:41 -0500
Guy Fraser, Trudeau will a landslide reelection, and probably a third term. The CPC will have some recovery to do
commented 2015-11-12 20:14:42 -0500
Sean Penson said “it is the will of the people” – Fewer people than the last two terms Harper won. By the way, Trudeau still only gets a maximum of 5 years, not 12, before the next election … or the pitchforks and torches will come out.

They better keep their hands off my meat, or it will be their last miss steak! >;^}

Sean Penson:
are we presuming the liberals have a desire to govern? given what we know about the extremism of Butts and the rest of the cowards hiding in the shadows behind trudeau, I would posit it is more likely the liberals are desiring to destroy in order to rule by fiat
commented 2015-11-12 19:25:47 -0500
The Liberals won the election, the Conservatives lost. It’s time to let the government govern for the next four to twelve years. The Liberals were lovingly elected on policies such as combating climate change, and they have every right to do so, even if it means much higher taxes, user fees, levies, and greater restrictions; it is the will of the people!

Dan Mancuso:
the notion that the ‘east’ seeks to use the ‘west’ as serf outposts to be exploited for the financial benefit of the liberal elite in the east is not a recent development. I am a 4th generation Albertan. I heard my grandfather talk about this, my father talk about this and now it is my turn to talk about this. The difference being this time the liberals will succeed if we don’t act deliberately and decisively to protect ourselves and our way of life. In fact, it is reasonable to now say western Canada is the last hope for individual freedom and prosperity in the country.
commented 2015-11-12 19:01:23 -0500
Now unemployed therfore driving less and can’t really afford that good steak. Guess the green movement is working, well that is except for Trudeau and his crownd. Elizabeth May will get really worked up over this, she must be cooing.
commented 2015-11-12 18:59:37 -0500
Sean does that mean you will live with whatever cheap cell phone or laptop the government chooses? Smartphones and computers are highly toxic. Why should you get to choose what you want to use in those areas?
commented 2015-11-12 18:57:52 -0500
I wish i was a left wing green hypocrite, i could tax everyone so much to allow me to fly and yacht around telling the serfs to not do as i do.
commented 2015-11-12 18:56:06 -0500
That’s what the TPP deal is for. God Canadians are so stupid Thanks Canadians you stupid f**ks. Western Canada needs to tell Trudeau and eastern Canada go f**k yourselves.
commented 2015-11-12 18:56:03 -0500
Sean sorry but did you ever see a picture of anyone smiling in the old USSR? How about Justin gets rid of his classic car. I do not fit into a smart car, i will drive what i please. I do not need a communist nanny state to think for me.
commented 2015-11-12 18:54:51 -0500
The evidence is there at ontarios 18billion dollar energy fake plan. How much did tax
Payers get on that fake plan. People in Canada are so stupid and liberals are laughing at how dumb Canadians are
commented 2015-11-12 18:53:58 -0500
Bruce Kirk you are right about our spoiled liberal children,i have seen too many examples of these in the pipeline, they show up thinking they can text all day then run home to mommies basement when they have to lift a finger, one guy lasted less than 3 days and he did not do anything i would call hard work.
commented 2015-11-12 18:53:15 -0500
Does anybody wanna know why they want to have a green tax and a carbon tax. It’s called the government wants to tax you to pay for their debts because they are useless. There is no such thing as climate change. It’s called climate tax to pay for their debt problems. Take money outmoded our pocket to pay for their debts so they are creating a new tax called carbon tax and climate change tax there are 4 countries in the world that do this now governments want to do it so we the people pay for the governments mistakes Wake up people. What is everyone going to say when there is no climate change and we are paying for a tax that doesn’t exsist. Wake up climate change is formally global warming formally ozone layer formally acid rain change. Are people starting to get the drift. The people are being suckered into any other lie. And we are all sheep following it
