Here’s how Catherine McKenna’s “green fantasies” will cost YOU

Brian LilleyArchive

Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Catherine McKenna, is living in a green fantasy world and she expects you to pay more and more over time, for the fantasy world she envisions.

In an interview with CBC Radio, McKenna explained that Canada will not only have a price on carbon but that price will continually rise in order to ensure people have an “incentive” to keep reducing their energy use.

Watch as I explain one of the economic fallacies many environmentalists operate under which in the end means McKenna’s “green fantasies” will cost YOU.

It seems clear the Liberals are bringing back Dion’s doomed “Green Shift” by stealth, whether Canadians want it or not.

Going west on 401 August 21 and there had to be over 100 or more wind turbines shut off.All on the south side.Some off in distance on north side turning just fine.So much for green energy.
To blond to know where people buy their fuel.
No carbon tax talk in USA.just dumb CANUCS.
The Liberals want to leave the door open to suck more taxes.Now I know why Canada is going to need new blood because they are sucking us dry.Time for a recall.

Its getting to the point when we can all just give up and die for all the Liberals are concerned.

Fact: Canada produces under 1.5% of CO2 emissions. Fact: our forests absorb more then 1.5% of CO2. So why do we need this tax for essentially producing plant food.

Will there be a head tax, because we all breath out CO2? What about for cats and dogs, which also breath out CO2? Livestock? Beer and liquor production produces CO2, so will they also get an additional “carbon” tax? Baking bread and cake produces CO2, so will baked goods go up in price due to the tax? After all, fair is fair so all must be taxed.

Will Baby Doc Trudeau now have to shell out more from his trust fund to compensate we poor folk for his jetting of for another vacation? After all, its Thursday.

Carbon taxing will inflate prices of all consumer goods – articularly the energy/transport intesive items like food, heating fuel and clothing. Do think inflated prices, higher taxes and fixed incomes affects this air-headed douche?

I just want her to answer this: how will money change the climate since the ball of fire 93 million miles from here, the one directly responsible for our naturally changing climate, doesn’t accept MasterCard or cash?

I also run a business and if this airhead thinks consumer prices won’t rise she is living a world of faeries and pixie dust with a side order of unicorns. To say businesses are equipped to absorb more and more costs is nothing short of delusional. It’s so comforting to be a failed lawyer who can find her new calling as a token cabinet minister.

I’m delighted that the likes of Tinkerbell and McKenna have been given carte blanche. The Great Reckoning can’t come soon enough. You know, the separation of wheat from chaff, the useful from the useless, the makers from the takers.

When the shit hits the turbines, there won’t be much sustenance or sympathy for parasites.

ERIC ELLIOT: Actually JT appointed her because she has a c**t. Now we know she is one as well. The sheer bimbosity and IGNORANCE demonstrated by her is appalling, and to top that off, she is obviously CLUELESS. Lets follow the world folks. The one where these foolhardy schemes have been tried and have failed. Why put us through the pending torture when we have already seen worldwide evidence that these imbecilic ideas don’t work. Are we not just living out the meaning of insanity. So lets kill our economies and our way of life for some feel good utopian dream that will destroy us instead of actually doing good. DO YOU ACTUALLY BELIEVE THAT ANY OF THIS WILL CHANGE THE CLIMATE? Minister of Environment and Climate Change???? She and her title are a joke. We need a regime change. A good start would be to bulldoze the UN into the East River

To the 39%: Hope you are enjoying the Crown Prince and the Liberal Social Media Party of Canada. Please let us know your joy when the “thieving” phony carbon tax kicks in. I guess the Libs have to pay for the for the flow of liberal voting welfare tourists coming in. That will be the only pipeline the Liberals will support, a human one to buy votes with our money.

War is looming

Dump Justin and all his minions

I run a business. You know how we’re going to deal with Carbon Tax? Increase our rates to our consumers accordingly meanwhile monitoring the Earth’s temperature changes.
What the hell else will we do. Absorb the costs of Carbon, increased minimum wages, business taxes……….? Sure……. we’ll just absorb them. No ….. our consumer will absorb the costs.
God help us if this liberal government is in for more than one term.

well said Harvey, the last election produced some of the most ill informed voters that this country has ever seen and it was mostly the new voters or young and naive that voted in the worst liberal party since turdo # one

This country cannot afford the Liberals. I hope the idiot Canadians that voted for these entitled, dictatorial dipshits are happy with their choice of change. What the rest of us knew was going to be bad change. The very idea that some of these people voted Trudie in because he was cute, they’re the same nodules that would pick up a deadly poisonous snake because it had pretty colours. All those voters couldn’t tell what kind of moron they were voting into office, when they chose Trudie and his band of Mental Midgets, most depressing.

Carbon taxing is a deception it’s a total supply chain tax from producer tp end user that ultimately will drive inflation into double digits – It’s not done for the environment it’s to pay for Librano vote buying subsidies of partisan client groups.

Interesting to contemplate that that Catherine McKenna will be be, and look, like Hillary Clinton some 30 year down the road…

Federal Carbon Tax.
It’s coming. This fall at the Premiers conference. Although not without a fight with Wall.

Let her fuel her Limo and heat her home on Unicorn farts first before she expects me to.

Elites always cut themselves an exemption from the austerity they force on the populous.

It’s absolutely mind boggling to watch socialist all over the world try this stupid carbon tax. What makes Canadian socialists think that they can do it better than every other failed state, especially when you look at the bench strength of these numbskulls.
commented 2016-08-24 21:51:47 -0400
Politicians have an obligation to do their homework. A Duty of Care. And it doesn’t take much homework to figure out that Canada in a carbon basin, or that Australia nixed their carbon tax for what it was doing to their economy. To bring in an unnecessary tax that is harmful to the economy and individual families without the justification, is a Breach of Trust.

McKenna is either a puppet of the leftist globalists or a bimbo or both.
commented 2016-08-24 21:06:25 -0400
It’s time to take up arms and free ourselves from this murderous tyranny. Screw the ballot box, that’s what got us in this mess in the first place.
commented 2016-08-24 20:57:35 -0400
we must trust this minister..even though it is a widely held belief that trudeau is a mindless moron ..he must have appointed this minister because she is the best person for the job right? right???

Another “Green” nightmare, this too will end badly.

I think Justin is doing her

In the meantime – if you did not vote for the libs – your friends and family did.

Welcome to the Canada those voters created

Socialist economics and “natural climate change” deniers = economic disaster.
commented 2016-08-24 19:28:13 -0400
For someone who is supposed to be educated she really is an airhead.

There is just no excuse for that fool Catherine Mckenna. Our government is so vile.
commented 2016-08-24 19:14:13 -0400
Australia had a carbon tax. Then the people figured out what it would cost them and voted in a government that vowed to get rid of it.

The figures don’t lie. Only liars figure!
