So the carbon tax is now in effect in Alberta. The desperate NDP is running million-dollar carbon tax propaganda ads in movie theatres.
But via social media, we’re learning about a new trend in Alberta: public booing when those ads are shown. Not a typically Canadian response. It wouldn’t surprise me if you heard the odd “lock her up” chant break out, too.
People know carbon taxes are a fraud. Left wing Washington State had a referendum on a carbon tax. It lost. Australia repealed theirs and France refused to implement one. People know that paying a higher tax isn’t going to change the weather.
The NDP knows that their only allies in the province, other than the public sector unions, are the media. So when Graham Thomson of the Edmonton Journal mocked Wildrose MLA (and expert on geothermal science) Don McIntyre for saying that the science about “climate change” wasn’t settled, the NDP demanded that Wildrose fire McIntyre.
Can you imagine that?
The NDP are in full “thought crime” mode.
Expect more of this: purging any science teachers who dare to speak out against their global warming extremism, and civil servants being gagged or fired...
NEXT: Along with being a Rebel columnist, Dr. Tim Ball is a climatologist who is also a climate change skeptic. He just got back from advising Donald Trump’s transition team about environmental issues, and tonight we talk about that experience, plus the carbon tax and much more.
THEN: Broadcaster John Gormley on Trudeau's comments about Premier Brad Wall, and why the carbon tax war is heating up between them.
