Doug Ford will be Alberta's carbon tax "saviour"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, The Rebel's Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid joined me to discuss what we heard out our anti-carbon tax rallies in Calgary and Edmonton.

We were shocked to find out how popular Ontario PC leader Doug Ford is among everyday Albertans.

Albertans have seen Ford take a strong stance against the carbon tax being imposed by Justin Trudeau, and if he wins the Ontario election in June it could force the Liberals to reverse course.

WATCH my interview with Sheila to see how Ford's message is resonating across the country and why he could be Alberta's carbon tax "savior".

Wynne will give her concession speech from an airport tarmac with an executive jet fueled up and ready to take her to someplace where she can’t be extradited from.
I can also imagine all the threats Trudeau and Butts will direct at Ford. Two words for Ford to use with our little BRAT PM.

Don’t get all in a spin Jon.!!! Everything is going to be ok.. in just a few more months Doug will take the wheel and his platform is pretty much laid out for him by Cathleen
Whynn.. just reverse everything that she has done and do the opposite of what she does and that’s a pretty good platform wouldn’t you say.
So relax.. sit back and see how the province heals under a conservative climate

Limp Wrist, Oh, your vast evidence story is falling apart.
“I know you are a lot of feathers and not much chicken!”

Another example of your poor debating skills. Launch and retreat….yep, you are a huge waste of time.
Hey, better luck next time troll!

Sorry Limp Wrist, no back up, no credibility….that’s how this internet thingy works!
You are the blowhard. Haven’t you heard, when you claim something on this site and every other site and fail to outline proof of “vast evidence” that makes you nothing more than a troll.
commented 2018-04-18 19:16:11 -0400
Limp Wrist, hmmm you really can’t lob this back into my court. Your the intolerant liberal who is making the claims here….back it up.

Hmmmm
No “vast evidence” presented here by Limp Wick.

I think you are projecting Limp Wick, go back and read your posts….

I don’t think you know any professors at all

Andrew Gordo Steele Stephenson, you stated that you hold a PhD. One final question. What did you write your thesis on, and who, specifically, who, by name, reviewed and graded it? You see Andrew Gordo, I also am educated, not with a PhD, but a Masters MSc and I remember the moment my thesis were reviewed and by whom. Here’s your chance you liar. Flight’s going to land soon and I will get some rest but rest assured I will check back because I know you can not answer that. I didn’t say “will not answer that” even though that would be appropriate, but you can not answer that. You were a complaining pathetic book keeper (not to offend book keepers, have some very good ones) but a pathetic useless union book keeper for Puck who never took a risk in his life and is just a teat suckler who thinks all the hard working earners owe him/her/it a living and retirement. Too late Gordo.

Doug Ford will win. Ontario is a bloody socialist mess. "

Ontario is a pretty left wing place. Ford’s polling in the low-40s; the Libs and NDP, both tyring to out-socialist each other, are both polling i the high 20s suggesting upwards of 55% of Ontarians like it that way.

I do recall her saying at some point she is a junior professor….I don’t know too many people with a PhD that would accept this position at a post secondary institution. Seems unlikely."

Thanks to credential inflation you don’t have much choice in the matter…

James Scott said in part, “Ontario is a socialist mess”.

Yes it is. It will take years to address this.

cnn…cbc..etc..Attacked President Trump when he first officially announced he was running for the Presidency of the United States of America…going down that escalator.. It started off as a joke with the goofball liberalist cnn and cbc etc..then they started to panic…the truth was being exposed rather rapidly beyond their control…

It’s not how you start…It’s how you finish…

All knowing Andrew likes to tell about how educated it is. Well, proof positive that being educated and being smart are not the same thing.
The same can be said about the resident compulsive lying, sociopath, coward troll, again hiding behind another fake name. This piss ant liked to state how educated he was as well. It believe it is called an inferiority complex, among other mental issues. A pair of sad sacks indeed.

Limp Wrist, you keep saying that, and, I say we’ll see.
You predictions have really fallen flat, or didn’t come to pass….
commented 2018-04-17 21:10:41 -0400
Limp Wick, yeah yeah, “clown show”, “ferris wheel” & “neon sign” saying Ontario is open….now how did I know the rest of your blather….get some new material!

Anyway Limp, we will see what comes to pass.

FEFW – at least she called you Flattie instead of Fatty!

I do recall her saying at some point she is a junior professor….I don’t know too many people with a PhD that would accept this position at a post secondary institution. Seems unlikely.

Hahahahahahah you’re a fraud

Flattie, I’m under no obligation to tell you anything. It’s every bit as real as Ball’s, take that how you will. I’ve never “won” a lawsuit because my opinions were too dumb to be taken seriously, however.

Andrew, the Feds cannot impose/legislate in the area of GHG emissions in any way it chooses.
The scheme does deserve a court challenge given the bogus agreements the government supports. "

They can and have regulated any number of other pollutants – but that’s not how they’ve proceeded.

The Rebel etc will have you believe the Feds are forcing the provinces to implement a carbon tax. They are not. The Feds are going to levy a carbon tax, and the offer is, that if a given province collects it directly itself, the Feds simply won’t charge it there. The provinces aren’t being forced to do anything, which basically means there is nothing that they can sue over.

The Feds can levy taxes (eg, existing fuel tax), and they can have province-specific collection mechanisms (eg, HST, income taxes, in both cases they collect provincial taxes on their behalf, in others the provinces collect directly).

If it were possible, Brad Wall would have already done it, and Wall knew a hell of a lot more about the situation than Doug Ford does.

All right then Andrew… Let’s not here anymore about your pretend PhD
