“Climate Barbie” blackmails provinces with their own money — but can't keep her “trillions” straight (GUEST HOST: Sheila Gunn Reid)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


(Sheila Gunn Reid guest-hosts for Ezra Levant...)

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says provinces who don't get on board with her climate change plan will forfeit their share of the $2 billion Federal Low Carbon Economy Fund.

She tweeted:

“Would also be good if the federal conservatives had a plan to tackle climate change. Like the Harper government they fail to understand the real cost of climate change to Canadians- from extreme heat to fires to flooding- and the 30 trillion opportunity of climate change”

That figure — $30 trillion — is around 15 times the size of the entire Canadian economy.

How much scrutiny do you think McKenna got from the mainstream media over this gaffe? Next to none, of course. They never have:

Back in April 2016, McKenna told the World Bank group carbon pricing leadership coalition that climate change was "a $3 trillion opportunity."

Two years later, in an April 2018 press release from her very own Ministry, she said that climate change would "open up nearly $23 trillion in opportunity."

But last month, she told cbc's "As It Happens" that it was only "a $1 trillion opportunity."

McKenna's just making things up. The UN could sell her a bag of magic beans and when they didn't grow, she’d blame climate change.

But Canadians are smart enough to realize that they save money by not giving the government their money in the form of a carbon tax, regardless of what McKenna says.

Don't you dare criticize her about this, or anything else though. She's got a rule about that, as I'll show you tonight...

NEXT: Conservative grassroots activist Prem Singh joins me to talk about just how bad the Trans Mountain pipeline ruling really is for Canada.

THEN: Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson, Christian broadcaster and author, talks about how social conservatives were treated at the Conservative Party of Canada's convention in Halifax.

What a goddamn international embarrassment that this Climate Barbie is even allowed to spout gibberish on a daily basis!…. Hey Canada!… You do know that nations around the globe are actually watching and recording this on a daily basis??? We, Canada, right now, are the “clown act” in foreign embassies around the world!?!? Thank God we are still respected for our ability to play hockey!…

Meanwhile, George Soros is spending hundreds and thousands of dollars purchasing great blocks of shares in Facebook and Twitter.
Be prepared to post your last meaningful Tweet, for we are fast sinking into the black hole of Socialist NWO and Black Death.

PAUL MCCULLOUGH commented, “There will not be any pipeline approvals as long as the Liberals are in office. They play games with peoples lives. The regulations need to be streamlined & the process needs to be sped up so these projects can be approved & well underway within one term because as soon as the Liberals get in office they will try to kill them”. Another factor is the activist judiciary overriding the legislative branch.

-29 confirmed arson fires in the past four years. There is a lot of talk about it being more. Locals have their suspicions.

Creston – http://www.kmaland.com/news/creston-man-charged-with-arson/article_80cfd6bc-8aa2-11e8-802b-67534d8b49b8.html

Greenwood – https://www.castanet.net/news/BC/230683/Arson-at-landfill

Armstrong -https://globalnews.ca/news/4316247/colette-leneveu-arson-suspect-armstrong/
etc. etc.
…and there is talk of some up North. I am sure there are many more. Climate Barbie needs to look at her followers and ask herself if she isn’t maybe encouraging some of them ‘for the cause’ . Unwittingly of course.
Climate Barbie = irresponsible.

The fires that are not arson, are from lightning, is climate change responsible for lightning? I have lived in BC for many decades and know of old timers who had lived here for decades before me, and dry summers and fire is a normal here. Just not this many. The reasons are not due to the climate. Climate Barbie is a disingenuous empty headed puppet.

- Everything about the climate change scam is fake, including the environment minister. Every area in the world that has pushed the green agenda has paid a fortune in order to disrupt their electrical grid. That’s all they’ve gotten out of it.

- There will not be any pipeline approvals as long as the Liberals are in office. They play games with peoples lives. The regulations need to be streamlined & the process needs to be sped up so these projects can be approved & well underway within one term because as soon as the Liberals get in office they will try to kill them. Canadians need to get in into their heads that if they vote Liberal, they vote for economic ruin.

- Even pro-choice people could get behind many measures to limit abortion (like term limits). Gender theory has no basis in fact & is not based on science. It’s based on a twin study where the “female” converted back to male & both twins ended up committing suicide (leftists consider this a success) – https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/debunked-the-dark-history-of-gender-theory/ – I’m starting to think Scheer & friends are deliberately trying to throw the coming election.

I’ve got a nasty feeling that there’s some kind of contest going on in Ottawa for which Liberal politician can make the most stupid statement on the international stage and still get the blessings of the CBC

“However, the more important question, is Bernier aware of another special interest group that has managed to exert influence over every political party in Canada, namely, the Muslim Brotherhood, which represents a far greater threat to Canada?”
Ron Voss, that is a very good question. Total supposition on my part, but I would bet yes. Dairy was the litmus test as he puts it. He knows its not the most important issue. Its just the one Scheer won’t let go of. Those of us who are aware, must make sure Bernier understands the real threat. It amazes me how easy it is to google info. Khalid’s father has long standing links for example. Justin has whored himself out to all the Islamist groups with our money. The man has no shame. I am sure that is not lost on Bernier. Scheer on the other hand is a coward as we know.

Laura-Lynn Tyler Thompson is one impressive woman.
That is not sexist, she is a woman.
I don’t remember ever saying that about a woman before…
The energy, or the kind of energy.
The courage.
The intelligence and forthrightness.
The light in those penetrating eyes.
But mostly it’s what she has to say.
Impressive.

Just out of curiosity SGR, did you decide to do ‘Your Letters’ that way, before or after you interviewed LLTT?

Ron Voss, Thank you!! wow , so nice to read a comment from someone who actually gets it!
The planet has been going through hot and cold cycles since its’ “birth” but don’t expect the masses to understand that simple fact. It’s all about MONEY FLOWING TO LIBERAL COFFERS SO THEY AND THEIR IMPORTS/ILLEGALS/FAKE REFUGEE NEW VOTERS CAN LIVE THE LIFE OF GODS OF WHAT IS LEFT OF WE ACTUAL CANADIANS who like canada are swirling down the third world sewer at an alarming rate and no one gives a good rats ass!
BTW, silly me , but I am more concerned with THE GARBAGE BLOWING ALL OVER OUR HIGHWAYS, WATERWAYS, NEIGHBOURHOODS ETC AND THE CONTINUED DRAINAGE OF RAW SEWAGE INTO OUR RIVERS, LAKES AND OCEANS! UNACCEPTABLE IN THIS DAY AND AGE BUT HEY, MOHAMMAD ALLOWED MONTREAL TO DUMP THEIR RAW SEWAGE INTO THE ST. LAWRENCE! Guess he doesn’t plan on living here once he gets his THRONE AT THE U,N WHERE HE CAN RULE THE WORLD! sociopath doesn’t have the brain cells to tie his own shoes!!

then the provinces MUST STOP ALL HANDOUTS TO THE FEDS!
OUR MONEY- NOT TRUDEAUS and whats more CANADA IS NO LONGER A NATION so we the provinces DON’T HAVE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THE FEDS/TRUDEAU!SHUT OFF THE TAPS TO THE FEDS! THAT will fix it all in short order!!

Angela Watt , What Judge did you vote for in the last federal election ?
commented 2018-09-01 11:29:53 -0400
Sheila it was not the Supreme Court of Canada it was the court of appeals. Need to get it right because Notley said she wants the feds to go to the Supreme Court so hopefully they will take it to the SCC.

Maxime says that all religions are equal and no religion should have special treatment . So I guess that means no sharia law . That’s a step in the right direction !

LIZA ROSIE, in that opinion piece pm Bernier speaks of how Canada has been hijacked by soecial interest groups, and, according to Bernier, “Of course, the mother of all political hijackings is the ridiculous influence the small supply management lobby for dairy, poultry and eggs has managed to exert over every political party and every politician in Canada.” However, the more important question, is Bernier aware of another special interest group that has managed to exert influence over every political party in Canada, namely, the Muslim Brotherhood, which represents a far greater threat to Canada?

ALBERTA MAGA commented, “How the hell do you tackle climate change? It has been happening since the Earth came into existence. I guess she thinks we can control nature?” That makes sense for a socialist like Notley who sees it as a wealth distribution scheme and mechanism for globalism, but why do so-called conservatives like Scheer and Kenney throw up the white flag when it comes to this B.S.?

ANDY NEIMERS commented, “The Sun is also capable of producing solar mass ejections that have in recent decades produced The climate on Earth is dominated, and I stress DOMINATED, by the solar energy hitting each and every square foot of the Earth’s surface, each and every day, and has been thus for billions of years… The rest is just wealth redistribution BULLSHIT”.
Apart from CPC MP Brad Trost I am not aware of another so-called conservative politician in Canada willing to say it is B.S.

Doreen Kranz, that is a really good NP article. Thanks for posting it.
Do you have a link?

Bernier,“How do I plan to do this? By systematically reversing the dynamic described by public choice theory. That is, by taking positions based on principles I believe in and that accord with what I think is the public interest; and by resisting pressure from interest groups seeking favours, despite the short-term political cost. I recognize this is a risky enterprise. It certainly explains why none of my caucus colleagues were interested in joining me. But the payoff for Canadians could be huge.”

Personally, I think Canadians are quite ready for a ‘principled’ approach. That would certainly be new, shiny and has the potential of getting people’s attention. We’ll have to see how Bernier rolls it out and what momentum it gains.

One last point, never underestimate Junior’s all encompassing ability to endlessly mess-up from coast to coast to coast.
commented 2018-09-01 10:01:54 -0400
Thirty per cent of the population will always vote Liberal no matter how bad they are, but there are independents. Even some of left wing media are admitting to Junior’s disasters so the fence sitters may rethink their positions. The Mad Max effect has yet to be determined. Max has not yet formed his party, we have no idea of it’s size and strength if and when it materializes. A split right wing vote does not necessarily entail defeat. The left wing vote has been split for years and many on the left are none too pleased with Junior this go round. It could be a near run thing.

Thanks for mentioning the sun cycles and the variation is solar radiation.
I grow tired of the bs, another example would be electric planes. Planes burn off fuel and become lighter and more efficient. Batteries weigh the same at take off and landing. But wait if millions are spent to line the wings with solar cells and make the the plane out of ultra lite materials. Then fly in perfect weather you can carry two people around the world in a few months that is.
I dont think the liebrals will get even a minority 2019. The stoners will forget to vote.
The fakugees will not bother to vote as they think the government will put them on a deportation list. Most of the votes turdo expects to get from people who do not speak English or French will not turn up at the polls.
We will get rid of this treasonous government.

“The right in Canada only comprises approximately 40% of the voting population.”
Peter where did you get this number? I’d be interested in the context. Is that an average from the beginning of time, how does it take in changing demographics or campaign promises( immigrants generally don’t care for sex ed, and he has ticked off the Chinese vote, for example)?
Voter turn out was quite high in 2015 and many young people came out which wasn’t seen in the previous election. Could that have been in part because of Justin’s pot carrot? The millennial I talk to are disillusioned with Justin and won’t give the liberals their vote again. I just do not see it written in stone. One thing for sure is , he won’t get a majority, so he will be hobbled. His track record has been too crappy for that to happen.
