Hunter Harrison, a Tennessee-born railwayman, is the CEO of Canadian Pacific Railway. Shortly after Rachel Notley and her NDP destroyers were elected, Harrison generously volunteered to pay a carbon tax.
We’re a citizen here and we take the good and we have to help with the bad times and we’re willing to do our fair share.
If they ask us, or if they impose another per cent or two of fuel tax we’re not going to lay down and cry.
So that was Harrison being a real bigshot with other peoples money — not only his shareholders' money, but all Albertans', too.
So how’s that working out for CP Rail?
Well, over the past year, share price is down 16 per cent, revenue's down 12 per cent, and they cut 2000 jobs.
But don’t you worry about Hunter. He personally earned $19.9 million last year.
And he still gets use of the company's million dollar private plane -- which, like his company's trains, runs on fossil fuels...
NEXT: Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter and I talk about the Alberta NDP’s carbon tax and other things Rachel Notley’s government is doing to destroy the economy.
Gunter talks about his recent visit to the Calgary Stampede and how different the mood was this year.
It’s one example of how bad things are across the province — unless you work for the government, that is.
It was inspired by a program supposedly meant to integrate Syrian refugees, but it's actually carrying out gender apartheid.
FINALLY: Your messages about my trip to Montreal, bringing the message of ethical oil to the streets.
