See how Notley’s carbon tax has already hurt these three Alberta companies

Ezra LevantRebel Commander Ezra Levant
 

On January 1, Rachel Notley’s carbon tax will be forced on Alberta families who are already reeling from 9 per cent unemployment.

In the past couple of weeks, billions of dollars worth of carbon industry projects have been cancelled. Besides those huge companies like Koch and Statoil, though, let’s also look at three Alberta businesses that got less attention.

Let’s start with an Alberta trucking company called Hi-Way 9. They’re “implementing a Carbon Surcharge on all shipments originating and/or destined to points within the Province of Alberta.”

So, the shipping cost of every single thing they move now just got one per cent more expensive, immediately lowering the standard of living of all of their customers, and their customers’ customers.

I’ll talk about two other businesses, and one of them might surprise you:

The YMCA. Here’s a note the YMCA sent to child care moms:

“In October the Government increased the minimum wage in our province and has a plan to continue to raise it until 2018. (…) Our staffing costs represent approximately 80% of our expenses. The costs for both food and rental have risen and we are also preparing for the upcoming Carbon Tax.”

Look at their fee hikes: Up $200 dollars a year per child.

Rachel Notley is a destroyer. Maybe you don’t care about 60-year-old family companies like Grimshaw that are being ground into the dirt. Maybe you don’t care about “corporations”. But do you care about ordinary families, ordinary moms?

The NDP used to…

NEXT: Two of our NEW Rebel contributors join me tonight to talk about the headlines:

Then UK Pegida founder Tommy Robinson talks about the German Christmas market terror attack.

Whinny companies. Can’t handle a 2% tax. If your that close to going out of business with a 2% tax increase. The company was already done. So imagine a 2% increase in cost. Or a 25% increase in buying USA products for the company…that happened when the Canadian dollar dropped to 75 cents USA.
This article is BS whine liberal like post.

One thing for sure…Trudope, Nutley, Winnie and their ilk sleep soundly at night while we minions freeze in the dark. Their reward for not giving a fuck! Merry Christmas Canada. Santa…..please bring us a Trump.

Same thing here in Ontario- except we have had more time to prepare . We have learned that shoving Vaseline Petroleum Jelly up your asshole -soothes the pain and rubbing it on your head keeps your hair from standing on end.

12 days until the job creating carbon dioxide reducing social license creating carbon tax is implemented in the Communist Dictatorship of Notleyistan.

I am assuming everyone is all excited, so excited that you are peeing your pants in glee at the prospect of being bent over and raped, yet again?

Strange how Muslim suicide bombers are usually very young , and obviously getting younger, as Parents encourage their Children to commit suicide because they will go straight to Heaven—-and get to fuck virgins for Eternity. If a girls kills herself…? If it is so GREAT— why are not the Parents strapping on the Suicide Vest ? Maybe, they are not so sure about Eternal Life -and it is easier to send your Babies to their DEATH .. Praise ALLAH. Lovely Culture. Lovely Religion. In Western Culture , we are a wee bit like animals—-WE will die so that our BABIES can Live.

It’s just getting started and it will hollow out the entire Canadian economy from production to consumption when it gets into full effect. Carbon taxing is the most unhinged, baseless, pointlessly destructive killer of economies ever devised by bad government.

This destructive ‘Green’ logic is almost as dangerous as this depressing ‘One way Multiculturalism’ whose only goal appears to be annihilating Christianity and White skinned people, in general.
I don’t understand how Canadians can support this attitude. My kids do.
I guess BRAINWASHING works.

Just filled my propane tank for heating my home. They company who supplies the propane stated that due to the carbon tax I will be hit twice. There costs diesel fuel is going up so my delivery charge will rise accordingly. The price of the propane for heating my house will rise as well. Probably three to four cents a litre. Anyone who thinks food will not rise as well is crazy. This is a PST the cost of everything is on the way up thanks to notley and her ship of fools. They are at the point where they believe there own bullshit now. At least they will be gone next election, all that anyone has to do is promise to axe the tax and they will win big, The NDP will def be in panic mode as the next election nears look for more handouts with borrowed money to buy votes.

In past honour killings in Canada, the parents mom and pop, told daughters ‘all is forgiven’, when the girl came home (leaving her safe haven) trusting their word, she was murdered? Unbelievable! We have blood on our hands if we allow this barbaric practice into our country in the first place. It doesn’t look as though even if the will is there, many of these girls can be saved from these murders, if the family has decided it will take place.
So glad we have the perspectives of people like Tommy Robinson and Barbara Kay.
Not only can I not find any interviews the CBC might have done with Tommy, I can find no cbc comment on him. The BBC and some American outlets will have him, why not CBC? I think we can all answer that question.

Drew if socialists understood economics they wouldn’t be socialists. Notley thinks business will bite the attack on their profit margin for the greater good, when they can do a quick hop south where they won’t be penalized. Just shows her inability to grasp reality.

Of course Rachell and the NDPigs will say the companies are being greedy when they do not simply absorb the cost of their commie tax.

The Germans are just so lucky, their diversity is just giving them so much strength. Junior must be looking on in awe of their prowess.

Yes Keith, many of the worlds worst incidents happen in the UK. I thought Teresa May might change things when she closed down "The Ministry of Climate Change " on her first day as PM.
Now I hear that she has the same motto as the fool Cameron towards Muslims; " Muslims do not have to integrate with British, We British have to integrate with the Muslims."

…….and we are supposed to worry about the politeness of our message to Notley. She has to be ‘something’ to be carrying out such methodical destruction. How could anyone watching think she is doing a damn bit of good unless they are sick also? She deserves everything she gets. ‘Lock her up’ is mild. She is brazen, I’ll give her that. How is it even legal to destroy the province and help Justin destroy the country? Nobody voted for this nobody. We are not just talking about a government we are not completely happy with and will vote out next election. This is some serious damage to the well being of the province and the country. Liberals, NDP, they are one in the same, with only one goal, to destroy Canada once and for all. Why would anyone think we would give a rats ass about the fake moral outrage over the delivery of our message of discontent. Albertans are ticked, and are being ignored, and the outcry over ‘lock her up’ was nothing but subterfuge, and they know it.

‘Willie hears ya, Willie don’t care’. That is what I say to the moral masturbating champagne socialists, Laurentian elites,and wannabe Laurentian elites, feigning shock and oozing superiority.

Unfortunately it’s also what Notley and Trudeau (and Wynne) are saying back. They don’t give a rats ass what we think of what they are doing to us.
No kiss first, nothing.

The killings come naturally to these Heathens but what is really worse, if you think about it, is the Acid Attacks. There are, or were, on You Tube, some disgusting images and videos of young girls who had highly corrosive acid thrown in their faces. One of the girls try’s to talk, she even tries to smile. The acid was thrown by family members, mostly because the Girls had tried to act like Westerners. Most shocking is the fact that this all happened in the UK.

How does a fake news site delegate fake news? We have to rise above the lugenpress. Compress the interview and increase the volume so you can make $30000/day like idiots on MSNBC. Now that’s fake news

Barbara Kay is correct to point out that honour killing is not unique to Muslims, as evidenced by the shocking Sharma-Dulay murders in Calgary 25 years ago where three people were murdered in the street with a firearm prohibited in Canada, and nobody involved was Muslim. This murder, as well as the murders of Asqa Parvez, the Shafia sisters and their “auntie,” all are national disgraces to Canadians. In every case, the victims either fled for their lives or begged for help, and our system failed them completely. But, how can we reasonably expect this to change at a time when we have a federal government that continues to bristle at every suggestion that newcomers be screened for anti-Canadian culture?

I have been to Somalia, The Sh** hole of the world. I understand why people want to leave.
Every week in London, we seem to have people from other countries demanding our government do something about the plight of one group or another. Since these people know what needs to be done, why do they not go home to help their own people? Why must “our” government send “our” troops to fix “their” problems?

Ezra, you characteristized Notley pressing ahead with her heartless policies as being “sadistic”. One could even say “criminal”, and so .____ ___ __!
Ezra, you are pretty transparent as to what you have in mind with respect to Canadian-values testing, vaguely undefined by Kellie Leitch. Let me help you with the screening questions, as one can pare it down to one simple question: Are you a Muslim?

- When Trump dismantles the American green scam it’ll be over for Canada as well. “Progressives” don’t care, at least as long as there’s someone to steal from.

- Merkel may as well have murdered those people herself.

- Trudeau is importing these Muslim cowards & their dishonorable honor killers as fast as he can. Globalism in action.

This reminds me of my career in hospital management where many many government initiatives ended up raising our costs meaning raising their costs or negatively affecting our ability to provide services. For the private sector, it makes them less competitive and/or they pass on costs to their consumers. For the public sector, they can provide less service and/or they pass the costs back to the government. Either way Canadians get the short end of the stick. Governments should get their own fiscal house in order before dreaming up ways to put the screws to the people that they were elected to serve.
