Edmonton's environmental activist, bike lane loving mayor Don Iveson thinks we need a carbon tax.
He said so this past week at a city sponsored event – an event that ended up costing the taxpayer over $50,000.
Iveson wants us all to pay more for home heating. Edmonton is a winter city. And staying warm in a winter city is expensive enough.
It's no surprise to hear Mayor Iveson talk like this. He's an environmentalist. He likes bike lanes and taxes and he hates plastic bags. In 2007, even he attended the United Nations Climate Change conference in Bali.
Mayor Iveson thinks the most pressing issue happening in Edmonton is climate change. Really. If you’ve driven around Edmonton, the roads are terrible. The potholes can swallow a small car. But roads are a small issue, now.
Alberta is in a major recession. In fact, the jobless rate in Alberta is up to 6.5% . That’s a full two points up from last year at the same time. Statscan says Alberta has dropped almost 11,000 jobs between September 15 and October 15.
Iveson says he cares about poverty reduction. Should he really be advocating ideas that kill Albertans high paying energy sector jobs?
