CTV interview with Environment Minister Catherine McKenna proves she’s clueless

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Every time I hear Catherine McKenna, Justin Trudeau’s environment minister, speak, I wonder: Does she know what she’s talking about?

Alas, after watching her latest interview this weekend with CTV’s Evan Solomon, I have concluded that she doesn’t.

I’ll show you some clips, like her claiming that having a carbon tax is “a competitive advantage” over the U.S.

Evan Solomon asked good questions, but why doesn’t a journalist ever follow up and ask:

“How is a higher tax an advantage? Give an example of one company that would be better off being taxed than not being taxed?”

To his credit, though, Solomon pointed out how how cult-like McKenna’s immovability on these issues was.

McKenna is still clinging to a de-carbonization plan when Trump’s America, the biggest economy in the world, just said drill it and dig it.

This is what happens when you fill a cabinet through gender quotas:

You get a lawyer with a fake valley girl accent repeating buzzwords.

But if you think McKenna has the monopoly on crazy when it comes to “carbon,” look about two inches to her left, to the NDP.

Wait until I tell you about the leadership race to replace Thomas Mulcair…

NEXT: Our commentator Barbara Kay’s video about a disturbing children’s book quickly went viral.

Tonight, she joins me to talk about why this book sends a dangerous message about the hijab to both Muslim and non-Muslim girls.

THEN: International affairs columnist David Goldman, a.k.a. “Spengler,” comes on to talk about Trump's historic meeting with Egypt's president, and what it means for American foreign policy.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Funny how socialists always think socialism is great when all the evidence and history says otherwise.

Andrew Stephenson the evidence saying it is a hoax is ignored by you , now tell me which of the predictions have come true? NONE! If you are so convinced then go without , and give all your money away. And tell me how taxes will stop climate change?

After reading this forum – the only lame, lunatic duck here is you & your assessment of what the REAL world is! Time for you & your kind to quit using those physcotrophic drugs – besides causing chaos in your minds – it’s also causing chaos in the world!
Obumer screwed America from day one and all you Libtards never once said a thing – Trump has achieved more during the past couple months than that TRULY Lame duck, phony USA citizen Obumer – All you Libtards have a mental disorder – go have it attended to – if that fails – please go feed yourself a lead pill!

Dream on McKenna! You can’t even explain your convoluted logic. She is pathetic.
It’s too late to implement this nonsense, you can’t get away with those lies anymore. ‘The train has left the station’ is an understatement and the communist liberal party of Justin Trudeau missed it. Someone should tell McKenna that in truth the world is tuning AWAY from ’decarbonization ’strategies. BECAUSE THEY MAKE NO DIFFERENCE and it ticks off too many voters when the general economy goes into the toilet.
Sell all your shares in that crap (fast) Katheryn McKenna, that day has past. Even you were lied to.

Walmart and Levi Straus won’t put Canadians to work you putz.
Is she serious?

Nice try Andrew, your boy is a Puppet and I stand by my statement.
Any person that says Co2 is pollution is dumber than a hockey sock full of horse shoes.
Only a snow board instructor pretending to be an economist would use free market and tax payer dollars in the same sentence. And just because he and his minions continue to destroy this country and its economy and there is nothing we can do about is not to be celebrated. That fact that you seem to imply that it is OK says a lot about yourself.
Frankly…..i would prefer to see an open revolt, it may be the only way to stop these globalists.

P.S. Climate change is a contrived hoax."

I’m sure you do believe that, and I’m also similarly sure that you’ll still be insisting it’s a hoax no matter how much evidence to the contrary. It’s easiest just to ignore the indignant squawking from your type. All that really needs to be said is that the models work far better with a human component to them, than they do if you hypothesize it’s purely a natural phenomenon.

Andrew, if Ontario was doing as well as you say, Wynne would not have had to sell 49 per cent of Hydro One to the private sector. She would not have had to pay Ford 102 million to keep their engine plant in Windsor. The poor would not be facing energy poverty with 60,000 households having their power cut off. Wynne’s approval rating would not be sitting at 11 per cent. Ontario is a case study in the total abject failure of the McGinty/Wynne/Butts green energy plan and their ill fated war on CO2.
Cheers

Let me get this straight. We destroy our own oil industry , run up massive debt chasing the global warming carbon fiasco , can’t balance budgets and start selling off our countries assets to pay back the debt to the real polluters like China .
And the globalists and United Nations convince us to keep our oil in the ground so we can buy Saudi oil and they use our money to build Mosques and madrasas here with the intent to eventually usurp our democracy and supplant it with sharia and Islamic rule.
Canada is like the photo of Marty McFly in Back to the Future . It keeps fading away, oh geez , there goes the C anada

I would love to hear Catherine McKenna explain the logic in giving huge amounts of taxpayer dollars to companies (bombardier and ford) to make CO2 emitting products. Looks to me like they don’t even believe their own BS.

Guess what, Canada voted for trudeau and his green religion and Islamic Radicals, so why be surprised by the blonde idiot. Canada gets what it voted for and all of us conservatives that didnt voted for this just have to hope and pray for next 3 years at least.

With oil and gas in the ground to survive Canada for hundreds of years to come, Climate Barbie’s babble makes Europeans understandably do that little “swirl the index finger at the side of the head” gesture indicating “coo-coo” for brain power… Canada is the envy of the world for potential access to natural resources… It takes a Liberal government and mentality to screw up that obvious fact…

McKenna, in fact all in that government are so stupid, it hurts to hear them talk. George Soros and their other handlers must laugh non stop in their backs. Because I don’t believe for a second that their empty speeches come from them at all. All the leftist politicians in the west have the same same discourse and they all take the same actions (climate change, islam in the schools, restrict free speech with islamophobia laws, mass immigration with no vetting process, uncontrolled spending where they send the money to corrupt countries, increased taxation, outsourcing of the jobs to 3rd world countries). I bet that, once they are bought, they receive an instruction booklet from the UN or the real non-elected billionnaire globalists telling them in detail what they have to say and do. Democracy is dead. They lie all the time and they can do what they want once elected. That’s a real shame.

Andrew, you are a very confused leftist. Your reference to a lame duck is hands down, no questions asked, lying, narcissistic, man child that is inhabiting the PMO’s office. "

Thing is, Trudeau’s no lame duck (the derangement from the Right tells you that), and in Canada we don’t have the same separation of powers, meaning that barring open revolt in the House of Commons nothing like the Freedom Caucus can happen.

“If that was true then the left wing media in US and Canada would not be spinning their crap lying about Trump day in and day out. Trump is all they whine about.

If he is a “lame duck” and “nobody really cares” they would ignore him. ’
He IS the PUSA and will always get attention, if only for comedic value. I wonder which appliance he’s afraid of this week? As we saw with the healthcare debacle (Or, if you buy the Breitbart crowd’s explanation, some sort of bizarre and convoluted scheme to get rid of Paul Ryan by humiliating himself or something), he’s basically trapped between the judicial and legislative branches. Coming back to the Freedom Caucus … they hold the balance of power… and they know it, are openly tauting Trump, who is flailing about trying to justify it.

Andrew are you for real? Ontario is not doing well. And ask some of the people who live there. And why are jobs moving away unless the companies get handouts? You are lost.

You can hear air or rather C02 pass through MsKennas brain through the whole interview. She makes me embarrassed to be a Canadian. Only When we cancel the carbon tax in the near future will I be able to feel proud to be Canadian in the presence of an Australian, and we’ll raise a glass to the end of carbon taxs. In the future we should hire those that are familiar with effectively keeping our air and water pure rather than those whom are best coached by publicists to convince us we are guilty little monkeys who need the government to teach us the way.

Andrew Stephenson blurted, “As for Trump, he’s a lame duck since the healthcare debacle, nobody really cares what he thinks beyond a few leftover sycophants who put a higher value on symbolism than actually governing.”

If that was true then the left wing media in US and Canada would not be spinning their crap lying about Trump day in and day out. Trump is all they whine about.

If he is a “lame duck” and “nobody really cares” they would ignore him.

Andrew, you usually spew socialist crap but this statement you said IS truly lame.

How true – and without them you are like a new third world African nation – receiving handouts from all other countries of the world because you cannot support yourself any more. And you will be on the dole for eternity because you will NEVER be able to support yourself.

Those four basics will always be required no matter WHAT the snowflakes think.

As a comment to the original statement – I believe today you should change “mining” to “mining and oil”.

If decarbonization policies created financial opportunities and generated wealth as well as a plethora of jobs, Ontario would be running a surplus , paying off it’s debts and would attracting new business and talent. Well, it’s just not happening.

The statistics show quite the opposite, Ontario’s doing very well economically, its budget is balanced, and debt is declining relative to real GDP.

As for Trump, he’s a lame duck since the healthcare debacle, nobody really cares what he thinks beyond a few leftover sycophants who put a higher value on symbolism than actually governing.
