With carbon tax, Trudeau declares war on provinces

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax is being sold with the usual bafflegab, misdirection and evasion.

A carbon tax is junk science and junk economics.

Canada’s emissions are a fraction of a fraction of the world’s man-made emissions. Carbon dioxide doesn't cause global warming, anyway. In fact, it’s the opposite. 

The Environment Minister even blurted out:

“It’s not a carbon tax, it’s a ‘behaviour-changing measure.’”

That is, it’s not about “saving the environment” at all. It’s about punishing people. Not the fancy people like the Liberals, who continue to jet around. But you.

"Behaviour changing" means making energy so expensive that you have to choose between paying rent and paying for electricity.

Companies will have to lay off staff, or raise prices, or both.

Especially factories, mining companies, trucking companies and the like, which are already fleeing to the U.S.

Justin Trudeau talks a lot about the middle class. But he doesn’t know what that means — he thinks it means his nanny and his gardener and his cook — all of whom have their carbon taxes paid for… with our carbon taxes.

NEXT: Aaron Wudrick of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation comes on to talk more about the Liberals' federal carbon tax.

THEN: To discuss the historic merger of Alberta's two conservative parties, I'm joined by Wildrose MLA Derek Fildebrandt — and I ask him if he plans to run for the new party's leadership.

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

If the RCMP wanted to assist the townsfolk they could have set up roadblocks coming in and out of town and monitored people… They didn’t have to kick down doors smash windows and cause further damage.
I guess you can tell this is still a sensitive issue with the people of not only Alberta but the western provinces as well as we are only considered colony status in
“club Canada”.

“looters and thugs”
commented 2017-05-20 14:20:31 -0400
Nelda.. People should not be forced by government authority to abandon their homes to have them looted for jewelry gold and guns..
I am glad and I respect the position that your husband is in and that is helping people in need…
People have entrusted the RCMP and willfully they broke that trust when they became routers and thugs.!!!

As far as Justin is concerned if you are west of Ontario he doesn’t care if you’re flooded, your town burns down or you aren’t happy when the RCMP rob and pillage . Quebec is lucky to not have been abused by the RCMP after their disaster, had visits from the PM as well as broad and swift compensation. No such considerations have been given in western disasters.

Nelda, in theory one would think the RCMP could be trusted, however they have proven themselves to have an agenda to carry out when they have the opportunity to get their hands on other people’s guns. Are you not familiar with the travesty at High River a few years ago during the big floods in Alberta? Not only did they confiscate guns, and drag out the whole process not allowing people back into their homes or even to check on their properties, they wilfully damaged property. Wilfully, with no regard to people properties. There is footage of RCMP breaking in front doors and windows and leaving property open to looters. They broke into locked houses which were secure, stole guns and left the houses insecure. Some people didn’t get their property back for months and a lot of hassle, some didn’t get them back at all. Antique weapons were damaged. It was needless, excessive and malicious force and interference. It could and likely will happen again, but people are watching and not so trusting when they are told to abandon their homes in a disaster.

One other thing Nelda, they were instructed to take firearms which were out in the open and they searched peoples closets, under beds and in drawers to locate and confiscate guns. They had no business taking weapons which were not in clear sight. They had no business damaging property and leaving homes open and vulnerable.
Trust the RCMP, I don’t.

leviticus 2013, I am not sure where you got your information from, but my husband is in the reserves, and he was down in the Montreal area helping with the floods, and clean up, He never saw one RCMP there. And would it not be better to have the RCMP collect (and hopefully keep track of and store thense things and possibly stop other from stealing them?

Justin Trudeau declared war on all Canadians the moment he was elected. Like father like son.

Quebec is flooding right now and the payouts have been bumped up 50 or $59,000 for the people eligible to receive benefits from the insurance companies… No increase in insurance payouts happened in high-level while the Rcmp went through the abandoned houses looking for jewelry gold and guns.

Soros’s boy toy won’t walk away from a court challenge to Fed intrusion on constitutional Provincial jurisdiction. But if the Globalists manage to grease the SCC , Wall should Middle finger the tax anyway.

Canada has a very big problem on it’s hands, it is called Trudeau. This problem needs to be fixed SAP, if we are to survive. Unfortunately there are many people who are unaware of the situation that we are in, they need to be educated.

The last Election, was just that, The last Election. We will be ruled by Sultan Trudeau and leadership will be passed on by Birthright. The Islamic Marxist Bloodline of Castro or Trudeau? Take your pick, the end result is all the same, pure evil.

Not only do we need a Referendum on Carbon Tax, we also need a Referendum on Trudeau, for he is surely mentally impaired.

How many low income Senior Citizens will die next winter, because they wont be able to afford to heat their homes. Of course this will make it easier to house Trudeau’s Muslim friends, but that is another story.

It is time for Good Men to do something.

Come on Ezra, pull your finger out. Two Referendums and Educate the People. You can do it! The Western World is your Witness.

You seem more bipartisan than many perceive you.
I don’t know how you handle all the crap to get to the good stuff.
I still hope you get $1 billion dollars

Do Senators do interviews? Ezra can we get Denise Batters on the Rebel?
Is Democracy Inconvenient For This Trudeau Government?

Hey Barbie! We’ve had a price on pollution for as long as I can remember, it’s called…
Littering fines
Dumping fines
Excessive exhaust and smoke fines
Chemical/oil/etc spill fines
Increased prices in cars for anti-pollution technology
These are the costs for “real” pollution. “Carbon” pollution is a Librano con job.
How dare they tell us to “change our behavior”. JT and his gang of thieves talk down to us like we’re small children.

DEREK , we encourage you , if it’s good with the family, and or shoe in for next election

The provinces have to organize to fight off illegally imposed taxing of natural occurring and life sustaining gases

Two years ago I would have voted for the P.C. Party led by Patrick Brown BUT he is no conservative. Some might say he’s a Red Tory but he is so red he makes the N.D.P. look pink. Unfortunately I live in a communist riding and the people hear have no idea where their welfare checks come from. Over the past year I’ve YELLING for the P.C. Party to FIRE PATRICK BROWN. It’s like spitting into the wind. There is no why I could vote for a party led by Brown. If theP.C.s win the next election it will be like liberal 2.2 no difference. carbon tax high fuel tax, unaffordable electric rates, wasted money on mass transit sancurtary cities, high crime, Muslim take over, Halal racked spending out of control.

Trudeau is both a fool and evil as well as a puppet. It’s Butts and Soros who are really running the show.
commented 2017-05-19 21:03:29 -0400
Will be interesting to see what Brad Wall plans to do. Hope he stands his ground and takes it to court so a precedent can be set.
commented 2017-05-19 21:01:15 -0400
@ Leviticus,
If he wants to dismantle Canada we should give him a helping hand separating the west.
commented 2017-05-19 20:59:41 -0400
Brian Lilley had a good video where he cautioned us not to mistake Trudeau for being dumb. Trudeau is in fact an arrogant and evil asshole, who knows exactly what he is doing. More importantly, he knows he can get away with it.
commented 2017-05-19 20:53:05 -0400
Paul… You are wrong in your miss guided assumption about JT… His daddy was evil as well as a Jesuit card-carrying communist and Justin was introduced in a very early age to the connections that he would be allying himself with in his effort to dismantle Canada for profit.!!

- Trudeau is like an idiot man-child version of Castro. I don’t think Trudeau is evil, just dumb as a box of rocks & incredibly shallow – the perfect requirements for a puppet.

- The carbon tax is designed to kill Canada’s energy sector & economy on behalf of Trudeau’s OPEC, Chinese & globalist masters.

- The new Alberta Conservative party needs to purge itself of red tory influence or Alberta will end up right back to where they were before the current NDP disaster happened. Also, Alberta needs a worthwhile party as a second option. One party rule always leads to disaster eventually.

Governments engaging in behavioral change is the antithesis to democracy, but the purview of dictatorships.

Brian Pallister is completely inept at battling the carbon tax.

Allan sounds good to me. It would be quite fitting if he went down in history as the one who broke up Canada.
commented 2017-05-19 20:04:32 -0400
Yes, he has declared war on the provinces. So why don’t the provinces declare war on him? Begin separatist meetings immediately and tell him to get stuffed.
