Notley’s carbon tax means Calgary rec centre may turn off heat to keep fun affordable

One Calgary community centre is considering turning off the heat to save money on Rachel Notley’s brand new carbon tax.

Les Turner, the General Manager of the Cardell Recreation Centre in Calgary told the Calgary Herald that in order to keep recreation affordable to Calgarians, they may have to turn off the heat in their arena area and are even considering lowering the water temperature in the showers.

The carbon tax on natural gas is $1.011/gigajoule. With natural gas hovering near $3.33/gigajoule, the carbon tax will be adding 30% to Alberta heating bills.

The Cardell Centre operates without government funds. It’s paid for entirely by users but the new minimum wage and the carbon tax are causing their costs to skyrocket.

Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world. But our community centres can’t afford to keep the heat on.

And when Rachel Notley tells Albertans to take the bus, she means take an extra blanket with you too.

No rec center , so more people will look like our health minister.

So people with fireplaces will burn more wood which releases way more carbon, great thinking Notley. And you cannot keep track of it either LMAO!

Keep making enemies you cow, once your ass is turfed you will have to flee Alberta. Or stay inside your elitist areas.

As Alberta’s neighbor to the West, Congratulations to Premier Notley and her Carbon Tax. It has got rid of Global Warming in only 5 days. The temperatures in Eastern BC are almost 10 degrees colder than normal. That NDP is sure smart. (sarcasm)

Let the Native Americans run it.They are exempt to pay a carbon tax.Just like every other tax.
Shut the heat off to Nutty’s office to start with.Then all her cronies.Get them all bus passes and fine them for driving when there is a alternate form of transportation.And definitely when there is only 1 person in the car.Let them lead by example.That’s only fair Rachel.

Not one accommodation to carbon hysteria should be made until,the government leads by example – they reduce their heating bill on government buildings by 3) by lowering heat to 65deg and no AC in the summer – until that happens they can go pee up a rope for my compliance.

Are the unionized employees that work there getting raises?

Even the gas here in b c — Shuswap went up 6 cents per liter , so all goods from Alberta will cost us more
Not to mention , the small towns on this side of the big rocks are feeling Rachel’s wretched earth policies

“How I destroyed Canada’s strongest provincial economy in one term” – by Rachel Notley

Sure to be a best seller to the socialists of the world … once she writes it.

I would still like to know who the white guy in a Hollywood Indian bonnet is, pictured in the header.

Ken and Kelvin,

My new broken record post.

Remember the 2017 municipal elections. The set of elections the little guy has a hope of winning. Or if you are stuck in either Edmonchuk or Cow Town, work to get rid of Nenshi and Ivison, two cronies of Notley. 2017 is our midterm year where we can remove Notley supporters at the municipal board and school board levels.

His name is Nicolae Ceausescu http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nic….
Romanian dictator, wretched Rachel’s mentor. They called his housing projects, freezer boxes. Thermostats where set at 50 degrees Fahrenheit in the dead of winter.

Ken, I absolutely agree. The problem is, that the majority of Canadians ( Albertans included) ‘fear’ their government, not the other way around.

Notleys emboldened by no opposition by any party or any citizen, therefore we have handed her the ability to let us suffer in the cold and live with the anxiety that if you should speak out against her climate philosophy, there will be consequences. A true died in the wool Marxist.
commented 2017-01-05 17:28:32 -0500
She also means take the bus while you eat your stale cake because she doesn’t have to since she’s got a nice big shiny free SUV to cruise around in with free gas to boot. Notice it’s only trough fed elites who are all in favor of the carbon scam.

The less we buy in the official economy the better. Starve this government of every penny in tax we can and the collective misery will hit a peak that will force an election.
commented 2017-01-05 17:06:07 -0500
Get used to this, socialism is shared misery.
commented 2017-01-05 17:05:38 -0500
I can’t wait until that smiling jackass Notley is booted to the curb.
