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.
