Catherine McKenna "has no time" for Canadians opposed to carbon taxes

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


On last night's show, I reported on Environment Minister Catherine McKenna's lashing out at Canadians during an interview with Evan Solomon when she claimed she "has no time for folks who are deniers."

The statement came in response to Solomon pressing her on how much the Trudeau carbon tax would lower emissions, something McKenna has been asked repeatedly and never answered.

The Liberals have failed to justify their imposition of a carbon tax, which will increase the cost of everything and make Canadian industry less competitive while doing nothing to help the environment.

Well, the feeling is likewise, Klimate Barfie. I have zero time for you. Everyone except you has come to the realization, that Butts got you appointed because, beside you, brain dead Trudeau looks like the intelligent one in the room. Dumb & Dumber.

1924, The National List of Benito Mussolini (an alliance with Liberals and Conservatives) used intimidation tactics,2 resulting in a landslide victory and a subsequent two-thirds majority.
-his was the last free election in Italy until 1946.

Germany
Brazil
Turkey
Venezuela
etc.

……Trudeau didn’t get voted in because people really , really wanted an authoritarian, fascist government. Canadians who voted for the cretin had no idea what they were bringing onto Canada.

Just go with number 2 Andrew, that is your limit.

“It’s unclear how the carbon tax makes industry uncompetitive
and if you use the money raised to cut corporate taxes”

Raising cost of production to reduce corporate tax?
Corporations don’t pay tax if they don’t have a profit and up front taxing most certainly reduces competitiveness on an international level, there is nothing unclear about that.

@Dirk

Fascism is not, however, a democratially elected government putting in place policies you personally disagree with.

By the way, exalting nation and race above individual sounds an awful lot like what the Right stands for these days. The Trudeau government, which is criticized around here for asserting Canada isn’t a nation or a racial identity, that we’re rather a loose collection of individuals united by accident of geography, is the exact opposite of that particular argument.

It’s unclear how the carbon tax makes industry uncompetitive – this talking point is a common one, but doesn’t seem based in actual observation. It gets passed through to the end user, and if you use the money raised to cut corporate taxes, may actually help industry.

Definition of fascism
