How you could go to PRISON under Alberta NDP’s new carbon tax law

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Yesterday Rachel Notley introduced a new massive carbon tax in Alberta, that will take effect on January 1st. I’ll walk you through some of it. It’s over a hundred pages.

They don’t even pretend that it’s about global warming. Yes, the law is called the “Climate Leadership Implementation Act”. But we submitted an access to information request, asking for any environmental studies showing the effect this tax will have on the world’s climate.

They have no such studies.

Oh, and why does this law talk about hiring “undercover officers”? Who can, it says, come into any building, office, store, garage, farm, whatever. Inspect anything, look for anything, take any document, use your computer. No search warrant.

I've inserted the entire bill below, so you can read it yourself.

The word "levy" appears 260 times. "Tax" appears another 55 times. "Warrant," as in a search warrant — 15 times. "Search", eight times. "Seize", three times.

"Prison" or "imprisonment" is in there 15 times. "Fine" is in there 19 times.

"Jobs" — yeah. Zero times.

NEXT: Lorne Gunter joins me to go over some of the other aspects of this insane legislation.

THEN: Steven Crowder comes on to talk about his personal battle against Facebook censorship.

Yes, the NDP copied the wording and paragraphs from existing tax law from 2006 and earlier.
Where was he in 2006 to protect us against the Part 3 Investigations, Enforcement and
Offences of the Fuel Tax Act (2006), "Authority to enter on land
48 For the purpose of carrying out duties under this Act and the
regulations, the Minister or an officer may enter on any land,
whether or not that land is enclosed. "

Welcome to Albertezuela. “Green” energy is a sick, expensive, disgusting joke. If they were serious about reducing carbon emissions they’d be pushing for a gradual change to natural gas & nuclear (it’s they way we’ll eventually have to go anyway.) This is a scam & a shameless power grab. Disgusting.

Great to see Steven Crowder – big fan. Facebook & others need to be outed for every bit of censorship. We need alternate social media.

Karen forcefully removing our government will never happen. We must wait out the remaining three years and unite wildrose and pc’s under one party. This is the only way to take our Alberta back.
commented 2016-05-28 12:36:24 -0400
As long as we have a fractured right faction, the NDP will win the next election hands down and will eventually lead the demise of this once powerful province. If we want to make Alberta great again we must dissolve both the wildrose and pc parties and unite them under one party and set out squabbles aside. If we can do this, we can take our Alberta back and end all the politically correct nonsense on climate change/global warming, bigger governments, end the carbon tax, repeal Bill 6, end the sanctioning of our main industry – oil and gas, end political correctness in our schools, end potential provincialization of Auto insurance, liquor stores, $15 minimum wage ECT. Albertans wake up

Penson you stunned prick. The opposition was making fun of Wynne because she was in the wrong gallery, she was supposed to be in the shooting gallery, as the target. And by the way, Ontario is not “hers”.

my Alberta is gone..i miss it and hate the assholes who pushed their way to where we are now. Albertans do not have what it takes to stop it. I’m sad my Province is dead.

I agree with Premier Notley: Wild Rose doesn’t deserve to be government, after making fun of Premier Wynn’s Ontario, while she was in the visitor’s gallery

I think we need an out and out revolution here. We need to remove this NDP government that is refusing to serve the people that elected them. We don’t have four years. Notley and Trudeau are both moving at lightning speed to implement the destruction of our nation. I also think that we have to hold the right leaning parties to help us fight Islam in our own countries. The reason the Wildrose lost in Edmonton was that most of their Candidates were Muslims, and Muslims who had barely became Canadians. They allowed themselves to be bought be these people. Who wants these people running our country? I think it is high time we gave these people a little of their own medicine. We should treat them just exactly how they treat Christians in the countries they come from. I want better than a Donald Trump. It is time we kicked these jihadis to the curb.

@matthew Lewis , I can’t write a book on how to get people motivated to do something. Nor am I naïve enough to think that a simple protest will save the day in Alberta. But doing something is better than doing nothing. And I used the word protest only in the broadest sense. “Protest” can manifest itself in numerous forms. Refusing to buy a car or lawnmower from the local dealer because his son or daughter is an NDP MLA is a form of protest . When I wrote “shun and cocoon” , this is what I meant. House speaker Tip O’Neill said " all politics is local" . He was right.
Make life miserable for each and every one of these miscreant members of Notley’s government. You can be totally civil but still make them feel miserable every tome they return to their ridings. Heck, maybe one or two of them will decide it just isn’t worth it to stay in government.

“And even in the fever of epidemic arrests, when people leaving for work said farewell to their families every day, because they could not be certain they would return at night, even then almost no one tried to run away and only in rare cases did people commit suicide. And that was exactly what was required. A submissive sheep is a find for a wolf.”

The RCMP destroyed all the ammo they confiscated in their raid in High River. Stock up now because the shelves will soon be bare. What good are guns without ammo?

I’d like to share a very relevant quote:

<i>“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”</i>
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

At the very least, every decent human being should consider this:

<i>“The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. "One word of truth outweighs the world.”</i>
― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

@donald ALLAN

Regular people on both the left and the right generally just want to live their lives and would rather not give up their free time to protest or make them selves heard.

The real difference is that the activists on the left are PAID to organise and agitate. George Sorros, Al Gore,wall street, big corporations. They are all financing a leftist tyranny to get more money and power for themselves. To squash any competition from small business. Look at Facebook censoring conservatives while letting leftists basically call for murder.

We’ve got the government schools, the mainstream media and social media all working against us. You think we are actually being outworked by a bunch of lazy useless social justice warriors?

Your damn rights we need to put in more effort but it’s not just protesting. We need to attack them on all fronts. We need stop financial support with any business that supports the left (or big government. Talk to people about these issues even if they don’t like it. We’re way to polite. If Facebook censors you, make your own blog exposing Facebook. Investigate and dig up dirt on local politicians, if they are on the left I can almost gaureentee you they are dirty as hell. Once you find the dirt, leak it to the internet. If it gets enough traction online the mainstream will be forced to at least mention it.

Buy local, move out of the city, grow your own food, get off the grid. They claim that the increased cost of energy from the carbon tax is to help people change their behaviour. Then let’s change it. Just not in the way they want.

They want us to stay on the grid and pay more for less energy while they spy on us with smart meters. Fuck em! Get off the grid even if it means a slight lowering of your living standards now. We have to start doing this stuff even if it is uncomfortable. We start hurting them in the pocket book while at the same time we are decentralising from their systems.They might actually smarten up.

If all we do is protest they’ll just sit in their ivory towers and laugh at us.

Oh and one more thing. Anytime they even hint at more gun control we should be emptying the shelves of guns and ammo. Just like in the US a few years ago when Obama was pushing gun control. Everything they try and do we should make it backfire.

memo to Alberta i feel for your province ,as a province that believed in hard work and personnel freedoms and the right to work in the resource industry and less government you are in deep deep shxx and it all started with that bitch from the wild rose party crossing the floor in hopes of achieving power,that opened the way for nutley and her rise to power, but i will say at the time i didn’t realize just how radical this useless bitxx was ,she is more scary than i thought possible . i fear for Alberta and Canada under these three wacko nut bars. how do we in the west make a protest that will stop these three crazies but it has to be an organized protest under the guidance of some one like harper who knows the ins and outs of how the system works and has credibility, and by the way penson shut your sick mouth you sick creep

Bill Elder , I don’t need to read any books on Marxism . I’m an expert because I lived in Venezuela during Chavez’s rise to power , the failed coup as well as the country wide strike. And I don’t need a degree in economics either. It was obvious that Chavez would destroy the economy and country in a decade and right on schedule it has come to pass.
I still have friends in Venezuela but I have been unable to talk to them in months. The cell systems are so screwed up it is hard to communicate. I have been unable to return because the crime is so bad it is just too dangerous.
Chavez bilked the country out of billions. He made deals with the Castros and with Iran. The majority of the military has been taken over by Castro thigs and Iran agents are all over the country . It is one massive mess.
As far as I’m concerned we should be declaring Vens as well as my friends refugees. Better them than the blood sucking Muslims that Trudeau and company adore and idolize.

While in your monologue, words like KGB, Gestapo, secret police etc. were coming to mind. A peak at things yet to come, maybe.

Something else that jumped right out, this law being so vague is rife with opportunity to abuse it. If people think for one minute that it’s not going to be abused, there in dreamland. Beyond fulfilling its yet to be determined purpose, it will also be used as an excuse to gain access without warrants, just for starters.

Rumor has it that Rachael has chosen Brian Mason to head up the new “Ministry of Propaganda and Punishment”. His authoritarian nature is well renown, and cabinet made him the unanimous choice. A new facility will be under construction shortly, and is modeled after and will become a modern day Treblinka. The NDP insist the ovens will run on green energy only, making it a one of a kind world class facility. Because of the anticipated crowds, an additional facility is already in the works for southern Alberta. Your tax $$$$ at work!!! Coincidently Wynne is in Edmonton today, and will be considering a pilot project in Ontario following Alberta’s lead.

Pay attention Penson, and all you other idiots who drink socialist Jonestown punch – Venezuela is a prime example of how virulent radical socialism will destroy the most robust economies and throw the country into the hell storm of impoverished subsistence. Venezuela is an embarrassing example of how Alberta, Ontario and Ottawa are being managed and that is the reason their plight is literally blacked out in our controlled news outlets – because our statist socialists don’t want you seeing where profligate radical socialism leads.

I’m listening to live podcasts and short wave broadcasts from Venezuela relayed through Havana – Venezuela is in the throes of becoming a failed sate – people hunting dogs for food, fresh water trucks being hijacked, government doing military drills in public areas as a warning to revolutionaries, police are being stalked and ambushed for their firearms, murder rates the highest in the world, there are reports of cannibalism in rural areas, there is no law even in the capital – it’s really a hell on earth. It’s hard to believe this was once the most affluent economy and progressive nation in the southern hemisphere 16 short years ago – until the nation was put under radical statist socialism.

I heard some interesting things about the history of this nation’s decline – The pattern of decline in Venezuela was familiar to other failed states who make radical shifts from stable economic and political systems – moving from laisezes faire capitalism and liberal democracy to radical wealth redistribution through taxation and central control of resources, private property and industry, land use reforms which left production go fallow, wasteful spending on no win economic schemes, isolationism from free trade, vast class division with wealth in the political class and poverty in the working classes, civilian gun control/confiscation, then despotism, dystopia and collapse.

Venezuelan failed state socialism parallels the agendas of statist socialists in the US and Canada – essentially Chavez’s Venezuela was what radical socialists like Gerald Butts, Notley, Wynn and Bernie Sanders envision – Trudeau likes the more virulent kind of communism used in China. Venezuela is a glowing stark reminder of radical statist socialist shifts will ultimately do to a vibrant economy. Stabile economies are necessary to a peaceful prosperous state and are a result of civil and economic freedom and demand controlled economies, not centrally controlled economies. It is also a stark reminder that failed economies have human casualties.

If you do not understand this and fear it you are less than an insensate idiot Penson.

I just hope all of this stuff can be ‘undone’ in 4 years. The NDP are poison for Alberta and indeed the whole country. Liberals are poison for the whole country and indeed Alberta. The conservatives need to stay strong and stop this ridiculous creep to the left.
They won’t need it to survive. On the contrary if they want to get back in after 4 years they need to stay strong and ‘right’.
So disappointed to hear Ont and Manitoba’s new cons are pandering to the bullcrap. They think they need it but they don’t.
I hope Notely’s damage can be undone. She is truly a danger to what most Canadians hold dear.
She is going to have a fight on her hands.

I agree with Ron “G” Christensen, I’ have been convinced for some time that Nothead has Mad Cow Disease and “Ralph’s Remedy” would be the appropriate choice of action. Sorry you have to share your name with the other Christensen, make sure to insert that “G” at all times to eliminate confusion, although your posts are such that most of us know you are the good Ronny.

I also agree with Elton Braun’s comment about the right running over to the left to cow- tow for votes. Fuck off and present policies that we on the right WANT to support. Already Manitoba’s new conservative gov’t going carbon tax bs?, and Brown in Ontario same thing? FUCKING FOOLS

I see PENSON must have reached his quota of blow jobs down on East Hastings, and chimed in with his 2 cents worth. Sean, we will see you at election time. It will be nice when you have to bow down to Mr. Jean and acknowledge the Wildrose landslide. Your trip here would be two fold,as you could attend the NDP funeral at the same time. Back to the closet Sean, better rest up for your night shift.

If wind of any protests or rallies slated to confront Rachael Chavez arise, make sure we are aware. Now that Notley has helped ensure I’ll never have a job again, I’m available.

To:Jamie MacMaster : I think you are making a great point and I agree. When the left wants something , they demonstrate, they agitate , they protest , they are activists who organize and get what they want. What do we do as conservatives (big and small C) Usually nothing. Given a choice between taking the kids to a meaningless soccer or hockey practice, or going to a rally at your local MP or MPP office, the conservative parent chooses the soccer practice. Don’t you fools realize that it borders on child abuse, because your kids are going to be paying the price for the damage these politicians are doing to our Provinces and Canada. Your children’s futures are at stake here.
The left are “activists”. Why can’t we become PROACTIVISTS
proactive :
(of a person, policy, or action) creating or controlling a situation by causing something to happen rather than responding to it after it has happened.
If we don’t become proactive, we will just have to deal with the consequences. As in the case of Alberta , we have the upcoming Calgary Stampede. Great venue to demonstrate. But I hear of no organized group that plans on demonstrating and making our views known.Why not?
I am really concerned that the people of ALberta don’t seem to care. They certainly aren’t demonstrating any concern other than talking it over at the supper table.
There should be demonstrations at every MLA office . Demand the resignations of the weakest members . Shun them locally. Cacoon them. Do something for crying out loud. Be PROACTIVE.
