Ezra Levant: Vancouver city council unanimously declares “climate emergency”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I reported on Vancouver City Council voting unanimously to declare a "climate emergency".

In 1983, Vancouver declared itself to be a nuclear weapons free zone.

City council voted on this, and passed into law.

And it worked! It's been over 30 years and sure enough, nuclear weapons have never been used in Vancouver...

Today, let me announce to the world the next target of the city of Vancouver’s aldermen:

Vancouver City Council voted unanimously Wednesday night to declare a climate emergency.

Now that the motion has passed, city staff will come up with new ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and set new climate change targets.

It's true: The people who ended the Cold War now want to end the Hot War, or whatever they think is going on with the weather.

(Which is weird, because Vancouver’s weather is pretty mild compared to the rest of the country. If you can stand the rain, it’s great.)

I don’t feel like there's a climate emergency. Because no-one in the world is acting like it’s an emergency — and by that, I mean the people who claim it’s an emergency. They still jet around — in fact, the UN’s global warming conferences are always in exotic locales around the world, with tens of thousands of important people coming to them by jet. As opposed to just talking, say, over Skype or online.

Vancouver City Council blames this climate emergency in part on "record-setting wildfires." But 29 huge fires in B.C. in the past four years were caused by criminal arsonists, not "global warming."

IMPOSSIBLE they have had a carbon tax in BC for years now, that must have nullified any such emergency.

Yeah, and tonight Sunday, January 20th, the weather forecast for Barrie, Ontario has the temperature perhaps dipping to MINUS 40!!! While freezing rain, snow, and cold are decimating the Maritimes…. Ain’t “global warming” grand though????

Victoria’s brown trout going into the ocean doesn’t seem to be a emergency around 800,000 litres a day . Guess that’s good for the environment .

And speaking of “climate emergencies”, maybe Vancouver City Council could send a few hundred snow shovels over to those Austrian communities which were landlocked by snow for over a a week? Ain’t “global warming” grand though?

Thanks Dale Warren for pointing that out…. The East Hastings and Main insanity was already evident from day one many years ago, but has not stopped other North American communities since then from trying to “piss into the wind” in spite of the obvious results… Since the results have been the same in each an every case where this “druggie enabler” experiment has been tried, we yet again, return to the definition of “insanity” i.e. repeating the same mistake over and over again expecting a different result…. The latest “sordid” but all too true manifestation on this issue in the past few years has been seen on Vancouver Island where parents of drug addicts, have been encouraging OTHER communities than their own, to open more injection sites!… What;- “share in this obviously failed experiment” that maybe, just maybe, makes you feel better??? Where does acceptance of reality merge with your own failure, sad and tragic as it may be?

Dale Warren—-Vancouver closed the roads for cars and opened them up for Home-less Drug Addicts.
Trudeau’s legal weed will solve the problem.

Vancouver City Council has always been the home of Left-coast fruitcakes and nut-bar loons. Instead of paying attention to the myriad of huge problems in the City itself . . . they are concerned about the planet & the weather . . . obviously none of them drive down East Hastings & see the blocks & blocks of human wreckage that has only multiplied since the opening of Insite 15 years ago.
