Residents of British Columbia are escaping the carbon tax by filling up Jerry cans of gasoline in neighboring Washington state and legally transporting their 150kg allotment back across the border.
Clearly, Washington's Governor Jay Inslee isn't against selling oil to Canadians despite his interference in our ability to export our own reserves. And then there's the cruise ships, tanker traffic and those cuddly killer whales.
You see, Inslee has openly been trying to influence Canada's domestic policy in order to benefit his state. But since the theme of the blocking of the Transmountain pipeline expansion is hypocrisy, BC's NDP Premier John Horgan is also causing grief with his protection of cruise ship and ferry traffic while condemning the addition of tankers to the port.
