Liberal party recommends buying cheaper groceries while Justin stays organic

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Liberal government wants us to believe they've figured out - right down to the exact dollar- how much their carbon tax is going to cost us. If that’s the case why can't they tell Canadians how much it's going to add to our grocery bills?

We know the Liberal government can’t tell us the amount because Conservative MP Rosemarie Falk asked the Finance Department for the details in an order paper question:

"With regard to the effect of the federal carbon tax on the price of groceries: (a) does the government have any projections on how much the carbon tax will raise the price of groceries and, if so, what are the projections; and (b) what is the projected increase in the cost of groceries each year for an average family in each of the next five years?”

But instead of getting answers for Canadians, Falk got a passive aggressive lecture about making better grocery choices.

“A higher price on more polluting products will send a strong and important signal and create an incentive to spend less on these products and more on relatively cheaper goods and services that pollute less. Resulting changes in household consumption will reduce the cost impacts described above”

This week the Ottawa citizen regurgitated a story I did years ago about how the Trudeaus' spending habits differ greatly from the Harper family. The Harpers spent a little more than $1,000 a month at Farm Boy on groceries but once the Trudeaus were pushing the grocery cart — or paying somebody else to push it for them — the spending was over double that amount per month at Market Organics.

Last month, I broke the news that Trudeau ran up $384,000 in food and liquor on just 5 flights on his government jet.

Justin Trudeau and his shrieky Environment Minister Catherine McKenna just gave 12 million dollars to the billionaire Weston family that runs your local grocery store to help them buy new fridges.

But normal Canadians, those of us who don’t have the taxpayer footing our grocery bills at the boutique organic store and who aren’t schlepping a private chef all the way to India to cook Indian food?

We are supposed to buy reduced-to-clear wilted lettuce for our bologna sandwiches on 3 day old bread.

Robert S. Thanks.. I faintly remember something was off with Buffet. Thanks for the reminder. Never bought any of his music anyways.

Robert, thanks… Yes, what Buffett cannot take away from us, is the fun we take part in at the Beach/in the Tropics… One does not have to be a “Parrothead” to enjoy the Tropics… In my 60’s now, I have 2 very good friends from High School that I had not seen in years, because I had moved away for a long time. One, is very Left/Socialist.. He’s Canadian.. The other is an American citizen that moved back to Michigan, and he is pro-Trump.. Anti Democrat/Liberal, like me. We still get together and have fun.. But the day will come where I will have to cut off the Leftist/Socialist, unless he changes.. My friend in Michigan and I are now talking properties and opportunities in Central and South America.. Where I’m going, there are no Socialists. But there are Parrots.. Macaws, and Toucans..

Oh, Buffer, Buffet, who gives a damn?
commented 2019-05-23 12:07:23 -0400
Robert Sloane is right about Buffer, I have been to my last “Parrothead” concert.

Once again, I am enjoying these comments… Fraser M, you could do what countless other Canadians and Americans are doing, and move to one of dozens of other Countries, where your money goes much further. You will still receive your Pensions, or a major portion thereof, depending on what they are… Yet, you will live for half the cost of living in Canada, and receive better Health Care.. Fresh food year round, and no Winter.. At 65, I get to move to Paradise, AND take my CPP and OAS with me. Minus taxes of course.. Canadian OAS is dealt with differently in different Countries, but you’re still much better off.. I know, the first (and number one) response I get is, “but what about my Children, and Grandchildren?” NO excuse, it’s your/our turn now. They can visit you, if they so please. If not, then they don’t care very much.. It’s their turn to pay, as you/we are on a pension/fixed income.. “Cat’s In The Cradle”, Chapin… Robert G, I like the song “Margaritaville” but I do hope you know the truth about Buffett. Search “Read Distraught Comments From Jimmy Buffett Fans After Democrat Rally”. He is a filthy rich Real Estate Mogul that is as Socialist as it gets.

What happened to ‘sunny ways’?

How about you elitist pigs go to hell. Just once can you filth practice what you preach?

Maybe the huge cost increase the so-called carbon tax will have on EVERYTHING, is a disguise or distraction to hide or cover up the Trudeau-economic-policy caused hyperinflation we seem to be experiencing…that usually comes just before an economic crash…better get your wheelbarrows out to take your Homoloonies to the market…while the bread is still available.

In hindsight…all of Jihadi-Justin-Groper – and his globalist master’s – moves will be obvious, as a means to their fascist ends…just like Hitler and the rest of the lefty fascist’s moves have…in hindsight!
Where have all the flowers gone, man?

You know what Rebels.. I’m just putting this out there. Let’s all laugh at Trudeau and all of his crew., while doing our due diligence to get the low life’s out of our lives! I mean really laugh at the goofballs! Don’t let the pukes get under your skin.. they get off on that kind of sh!t of getting people pissed off.

Do your best to live happy, loving and prosper. Don’t get mad… get even.

Last year at this time you could buy no name ice tea it was 99 cents. Last week no name ice tea costs $1.47
Now in my pension I got. $1.98 inflation raise and a $25.00 raise in rent and sadly I’ll probably get a $50.00 raise in rent.

Socialists target core necessities to bring the populace to heel. The carbon extortion, wrapped in platitudes, is designed to do this because life is carbon based. It attacks energy, shelter, clothing and food. The regressives only have to apply the extortion to oxygen and water, probably through photosynthesis and respiration, both which are carbon driven, and their task is complete.

Environmentalism is only about control of the many by the few.

In days of yore, Cake was made from stems, leaves and husks of old corn with very little corn seed in it. A poor mans bread.
I wonder if Trudeau is going to increase Pensions so that Senior Citizens can eat real bread, or is enforced starvation cheaper than Euthanizing?

Cautionary note…If ‘You’ are over seventy years old, never let yourself be put into a hospital, the chances of you going home again are very slim. Euthanizing the aged is completely acceptable, according to Trudeau, especially if you are white. He also has a yen for Topping nine month old Fetus or even freshly born baby’s.
Not to worry, He like Theresa May will soon come under the dead meat category.

Trudeau’s social conditioning experiment is about to hit the wall. He is so gone, gone gone. I not only want him out of the PM’s office, I want him to not even be opposition, and to put the icing on the cake, I want him to lose in his riding. I want this guy and his social engineering bunch of freaks the hell out of power. I hope there are enough Canadians who have paid enough attention, to make that happen, and that these liberal bottom feeders don’t find a way to fix the election with a little help from their foreign friends who have no business messing with ours.

We have to knock that mentally deranged puppet off of his pedestal.
(Not literally, all you liberal snivellers, I mean figuratively speaking. I know you guys have as hard a time with that one as you do understanding context.)

Boy the old “Let them eat cake” platform just keeps getting recycled down through history….never gets a good response from the appointed cake eaters though.

It all kinda makes Bev Oda’s $16.00 glass of OJ look pathetic don’t it?

Nice one. I like the way Sheila tied it all together in one neat package.
