Social Justice Warriors and Environmental activists are ruining sports, with the latest example in Montreal where Liberal Mayor Denis Coderre has decided his city needs to buck up $24M to host a Formula E race this summer.
Formula E is electric car racing, and pumping this money into the event shows a disgusting lack of respect for the Montreal taxpayer.
Denis Coderre defended the decision to dump $24M into the event suggesting it’s an investment that will show the world that Montreal is a green energy leader.
"We're changing the culture, we want cars but we want electric cars. We want taxis, but we want electric taxis."
Watch as I show you why this is such a bad deal for Montreal taxpayers.
No other cities on the Formula E circuit are putting up any public money. Unlike the Formula 1 event, also subsidized, Formula E is a circuit and competition nobody has heard of.
I'm a fan of open wheel racing and attending the Vancouver Indy Car event each year as I grew up was one of the coolest things I can recall.
The roar of those engines was exciting but for kids and racing enthusiasts attending this summer's Formula E event, all they’ll hear is the soft drone of Prius engines drowned out by the sound of $24M tax dollars sucked down the drain.
