McKenna “believes” in numbers but dodges question on efficacy of Liberal carbon tax

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

A joint audit conducted by the federal environment commissioner and auditors general from nine provinces, found that federal and provincial carbon tax plans aren’t doing what the government tells us they’re meant to do; reduce GHGs.

Canada's auditors general found that most governments in Canada are not on track to meet their commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Making a bad report even worse for McKenna, the auditors found the federal government didn’t show that existing regulations to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions would meet their 2020 target.

Of course not. We know McKenna’s carbon tax is a cash grab and not designed to do anything else.

In fairness, the criticism directed at Alberta wasn't any nicer.

The report found Alberta’s implementation plan didn’t include an overall emissions target or even a rationale for not having one, or expected results, or clear roles and responsibilities and mechanisms for coordination, didn’t detail significant areas of risk, or have mechanisms to monitor and even evaluate progress.

In Alberta, it’s a sales tax, cloaked in environmentalism. The only performance measure is how much extra money Rachel Notley has to waste.

Watch to see how poorly McKenna reacted to both the auditor’s report and the Conservative MP who asked her for answers about the efficacy of her carbon tax.

“Alt right Rebel Media and its trolls” That is how Climate Barbie addresses us, and she wonders why we (I) won’t stop referring to her as Climate Barbie?

That audit is like a breathe of fresh air. I can’t wait until the liberals fall.

CO2 generation is irrevocably hitch-pinned to our GDP. Decide which one you want to reduce, because you can’t have both.

Andy.. their goal is not logic, Commonsense or Truth… it’s poverty for the masses to further their agenda.!!

The “carbon” debate has indeed been deliberately blurred by first the “global warming” and then the “climate change” crowd to kowtow ignorant people into believing that “anything that burns” is bad… What has been deliberately obfuscated in this propaganda is the fact that “carbon emissions” are not only all bad but NATURALALL people emit carbon dioxide every time they breathe!.. As do forest fires… But it’s the stuff that all the world’s plant life needs to stay green… Ocean surface plankton turn it into oxygen as does every single tree on the surface on God’s green earth!… There are “bad” carbon emissions however.. Sulphur dioxide produces acid rain and is a killer… Ditto for certain poisonous hydrocarbons… OBVIOUSLY they should be controlled… But “spinning” it into the “UN based/Global Warming/then Climate Change/now Whatever” circus, to tax hapless citizens, is the epitome of intellectual dishonesty but a strong mirror on the mentality of those “who know what’s best for us”…

The only way to change the gender-carbon insanity is remove this group of airheads from power.
The place to start is showing up for the planned rallies against the ‘Hairdo who would be King’ on Monday April 2 12 noon local!
Let’s start taking action to de-throne the head clown. Climate Barbie, John the Drunk, the Somalie Immigration Minister, the non-citizen Minister of Status for Women and the whole gang can be toppled including puppet-master Gerald head up my Butts.
April 2 12 noon local at your City Hall.
Come out and be seen!
Tell everyone you know who loves Canada !

OK…WTF is carbon pollution? Is it plastic bags that are long chain carbons or is it some other form of carbon other than Co2. Well let me put that to the self proclaim one, all knowing Andrew. Or how about the biggest idiot on this site that believes itself so smart whom is going under the current fake name as bob rock. Some one needs to enlighten us rubes from the hinter land what carbon pollution is. We wont ask the minister of air miles (love that handle by the way), Climate Barbie because, ….well….. we just wont actually get an answer.

Tammie… I don’t do any social media whatsoever but this is just too good to let go and on one of her next holier than thou hypocritical statements and actions that she lives breathes and eats over the masses, somebody needs to nail her to the cross with her series of new handles… minister of air miles… I’m still laughing .!!!!!!
Can you imagine that…?? Would the minister of air miles please explain how these many fold increases in the carbon taxes are going to reduce our carbon footprint to the point where Canada by itself will save the world without destroying economies and lives and further ruining the governments taxpayer base in Canada.!!
That part was not so humourous but nonetheless… Unbelievable.!!!
commented 2018-03-29 22:04:49 -0400
Flat Earth…Flat Water, now we need someone to publicly address her as the Minister of AirMiles…perhaps during a media scrum! Or maybe, the next time she posts something absolutely ridiculous on Twitter, nail her will her this moniker! I predict she will post something next week!

Carole… he will continue to give billions of dollars away for the millions that he will receive back as “laundered donations” to his trust fund.!!

The efficacy of the tax will be reached when they tax us at their maximum rate (don’t remember when that will be in their plan) and everything comes crashing down: people unable to drive their cars and heat their homes and companies closing for lack of profits. Then we will have reduced our emissions when we’ll reach the 3rd world standard of living.
I can’t imagine the number of billions that Trudo will give to other countries in the future. Globalism first.

Minister of Air miles climate change and environment.. is it just me or is that the best monicker ever.?? She will have a Facebook meltdown over that one.!

Don’t be fooled. McKenna and Trudeau know exactly what the carbon tax will do. It will finance their lavish lifestyles.

Air miles Barbie… LOL this is just getting funnier all the time..!!! The only thing that these appointed ministers take seriously is the money they are getting because none of them are qualified to have anything beyond an opinion..

“Minister of air miles”… That’s too true to be funny.. lmao

Funny how emissions went DOWN under Harper and none of these idiots cared.

Of course she cannot count past twenty as she runs out of fingers and toes.

The Minister of Airmiles has no idea what she is talking about…she is a quota hire without any real qualifications. She is a climate alarmist who is the talking head for globalists here in Canada. LPC is a corrupt party who wants to see Canada under the thumb of UN and other oil producing nations.

And speaking of climate change… What the morons call global warming or climate change smart people call spring time… LOL

If we can’t defeat the Liberals one way or another in the next election, the election following that one we may be voting with pitchforks shovels and rakes…!

We all know very well this has nothing to do with actual climate or environment
Its just a straight up cash grab
Just stop insulting everyone with this Enviro BS and say “we want more money from all of you to continue fucking you over”

PS – Climate change story is utter BS as well….no damn evidence saying anything is damaged by us excepting for these protesting and marching bums that litter everywhere and Oh Yeah, Mcenna being super ok with dumping raw sewage into the St.Lawrence…….hypocrite!
