Norway threatens to ban ALL gasoline cars — Why Canada might be next

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Norway’s politicians have announced that they intend to ban all fossil-fuel vehicles by 2025. Which, by the way, is just seven and a half years from now.

Norway has a higher number of electric cars, because they’re “cheap.” That is, the government subsidizes them so heavily, they’re artificially cheap.

And Norway is floating on oil. That’s where all the cash comes from to subsidize their electric cars. Sort of like a guy who eats a huge T-bone steak and then says, he wants the vegan dessert…

So naturally, Trudeau’s office saw this Norwegian announcement. The PM’s policy advisor, the environmental extremist Zoe Caron, expressed approval. (Of course, this ban wouldn’t apply to her boss’s jet.)

Then there’s Elon Musk, the president of Tesla, perhaps the most subsidized company in the United States. They make extremely expensive cars and would be out of business in a month without government intervention. So naturally, he was tweeted at Norway: “What an amazingly awesome country. You guys rock!!”

This is just a small story, and it will likely come to nothing.

But it shows us a lot —about Trudeau and his staff, and the true nature of the crony capitalists in the green industry.

Joe Oliver has made the amazing claim that the Liberals spent $9 billion in a single month so they could turn around and say there was a deficit. My guest Ian Lee of the Sprott School of Business talks about this extraordinary assertion, and the Liberals’ other economic policies.

Then I catch up with Breitbart’s Joel Pollack about the U.S. presidential election, and support for Trump among Hispanics.

Finally: I got a lot of emails about my interview with my old Conservative Party colleague Mark Cameron, who is now campaigning for a carbon tax. Like you, I want to learn more about who is funding his organization.

So what? It’s their prerogative to do so. I don’t think anybody at all disagrees with shifting away from fossil fuels.

Obviously you don’t’ drive (probably still running around in training panties!!) and have nothing invested in the energy sector – as many of us have – when you get your new electric car – bring it up to northern Alberta and show it off – it’ll be easy to spot – sitting on the side of the road at -35* C – all fogged up inside – and all us diesel burners will just blow by you. We are NOT a bunch of wussy do gooders up here – people are allowed to do the stupidest shit up here and we let them be – ‘cause if they survive – they never come back!! Maybe you can strap a solar panel & a bicycle to the roof – and come spring you mite just be able to get back to your Ontariowe! We’ll just haul your electric utensil to the scrap yard where they all belong. & if you stop by I’ll sell you a lame horse.

Deborah, ..but it is mostly the young people who are being brain washed by these idiots and when you try to explain the real facts of life they fly off the handle and proceed with the insults, you know like earth hater ,pollution lover ,Neanderthal , bigot , racist ,living in the past, killing the planet, i have heard them all, i just wish the oil companies would shut down all oil and gas deliveries to all the major cities in Canada for about a week, you can’t get through to these people, and unfortunately there are quite a few older people brain washed to be anti oil also

Isn’t it odd that criminal Wynnie recently mentioned this. You know all the Marxists want us eating dirt, while they eat cake. This is all about the UN takeover of the world. What better way than to destroy everything that modern society has provided to the average citizen. These people want to control everything and they could careless about humanity. It’s all about those who are insane with the need to control everybody. These are global psychopaths that have infiltrated to the highest level of government. It’s why they are using a human army to invade and destroy any normalcy in the world, for their gain. This is just another way to destroy everything normal, so that they can step in and put the cuffs on us.

And of course Whinny the horse faced lesbo wants to cut off Ontari-owe from natural gas for heating while boosting the cost of hydro which will make electric cars cost more. The woman is a genius

The good news is the Muslims will have taken over Norway by then anyways so there will be no need for fossil fuel anything.

Norway derives much wealth from Statoil . . . which operates in 36 countries in the OIL and GAS realm.
If the Norwegians were really serious they would shut it ALL down !
Enviro"Mentalists" are the Alchemists of the 21st Century . . . laughable !
Justin “I am feminine” Trudough ! ! ! What we should ban is Trudough and his brain Butts.

@pension . . . known Oil and Gas reserves TODAY are higher than at any time in History.
Didn’t your enviro-loon buddies once predict we would run out in the 80s ?

We are ALL Ontar-i-owe now ! ! ! Gorebull Warming STOPPED in 1998 . . .

It would lead to massive unemployment, huge food price increases and rebellion from those who need a combustion engine to survive in the wilds of Canada.

Not everyone lives in Toronto.

Why are the politicians all promoting the colossal lie of Climate change and carbon taxes which are killing the economy. I will no longer vote for any party or politician that lies to us. The media except for the REBEL all lie to us and are responsible for this lefty farce.

Eventually, it ma happen, as fossil fuels become more and more scarce. It’s just part of the change that we must accept for the good of the economy and the environment.

Commie BS.

If they try, it will be time to take up arms and rid the country of all its tyrants.
