Brad Trost: Provinces unite against Trudeau's carbon tax

Rebel Staff

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Conservative MP Brad Trost (Saskatoon-University) joined me to discuss the provincial governments pushing back against Justin Trudeau's federally imposed carbon tax.

Originally it was just Saskatchewan opposing Trudeau, now Doug Ford's victory in Ontario's recent provincial election has added Canada's most populous province to the fight against the carbon tax.

But it's not just conservatives anymore, the Liberal governments of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island are starting to resist the efforts of their federal cousins. And this makes a lot of sense, why would a Liberal party support a tax that makes the poor poorer?

WATCH my full interview with Brad Trost to see how the increasing opposition to Trudeau's carbon tax is proof the Prime Minister has lost his prestige.

While I agree with your concerns about Scheer. I would like to know if you have a plan B as it seems to me that the next PM will be either Scheer or Trudeau and Scheer is the lesser of the evils.

If you actually thought there was an issue with cLIEmate UNchange, then carbon taxes would be the last thing you would want. No place that imposed carbon taxes has reduced emissions. Those who embraced fracking and shale gas have reduced emissions. The US exceeded the Kyoto targets they never signed onto, by fracking. Canada never slowed emissions growth one bit. The US is now lowering it’s per capita Co2 Emissions, ours are rising…

The Carbon Tax is, and always was a cash grab. TruGrope needs the money possibly to pay off some more terrorists, or 20 somethings he will deny having groped!

With respect to the Manning Center, I understand that there was one principal donor so as far as subscribing to man-made, er, people-made climate change, it may have been a case of whoever pays the piper calls the tune.

MAC CUMMING commented, “Brad Trost is the only member of the government who has the guts to tell the truth about the climate hoax that has decimated our economy.” You probably mean Parliament by “only member of the government”. In actual fact, as far as I know, Brad Trost is the only elected politician in Canada who has the guts to tell the truth about the climate hoax.

“Of course in the end we have to support the Federal Conservatives,…”

No “we” don’t. No I won’t. And neither will my family or my truly conservative friends. Scheer and his flock of neutered sheep showed their true colours – yellow and red – with their support for turdo la doo on climate change and supply management.

Nice to see a Federal Conservative on Ezra’s show. I keep getting fundraising calls from the Party and I keep asking them when will I see Andrew Scheer on Ezra’s show. Last year their donation went to the Rebel. Of course in the end we have to support the Federal Conservatives, what other choice is there. This year I think I will donate to the Riding Associations for those who appear on Ezra’s show or on other Rebel shows.

On another but similar note: Here is what I believe and how I came to that opinion: From There to Here, How I Became a Skeptic of Anthropological (Human) Caused Catastrophic Climate Change http://heinzegroup.com/climate2016.htm

Brad Trost is the only member of the government who has the guts to tell the truth about the climate hoax that has decimated our economy. The only problem is that the CINOs have thrown him under the bus. He is the best candidate that the conservatives have as opposed to the liberal lite leader Scheer who supported the Paris climate accord and supported the Marxist style dairy scam that has had the consumer paying over double for milk, cheese etc. for over forty years.
