CBC just reported that Justin Trudeau is willing to negotiate the terms of what they’re suddenly calling a “southern carbon tax.” As in, maybe the North doesn’t even have to have a carbon tax. The Liberals will “study” the “impact” first.
Of course a carbon tax would devastate the north. It’s so vast, you need fossil fuels, especially diesel, to traverse it. Teslas won’t work. Neither do solar panels.
You put a carbon tax on the north, and you just made all their milk and eggs and vegetables more expensive to fly in. You just made all their jobs more expensive, or even obsolete.
Now, these same objection apply to Saskatchewan, too. But Trudeau hates that, because it’s Saskatchewan, and they voted Conservative.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall has asked to see the same economic studies that the Liberals now promise the north, but the Liberals are hiding them.
And now Ottawa is threatening to cut off Saskatchewan hospitals, nurses and doctors if Wall doesn’t bend the knee.
Global warming is the worst threat in the world, say the Liberals. Everyone has to change their lives to solve it.
Except for northerners. Why?
I think the answer is clear...
