Quebec and Bombardier get subsidies, while the west gets a carbon tax and tariffs

Brian LilleyArchive

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall was on CTV’s "Question Period" discussing the carbon tax. He made the point that his province — in fact, the entire western economy — was hurting and now was not the time for a carbon tax that would only do more damage.

He compared it to Ottawa slapping a tax on the auto industry back in 2008 when that industry was reeling. Except of course that never happened; there was a bailout instead.

Is there a bailout of the oil industry? No.

Is there help for large scale farmers that will see costs go up significantly thanks to a carbon tax? No.

What is there?

Well, there is the special tariff on dry wall that’s pushing up the costs of home building and home renovations by thousands of dollars,and it’s a tariff that only applies west of the Manitoba-Ontario border.

So no good news for the West even though the Liberals elected their first MP in Calgary in a generation this past election.

If you happen to be part of a favoured industry in Quebec though, it’s a different story.

Watch as I explain which direction the money flows, regardless of who’s in power.

In addition to more announcements like this, expect growing Western resentment to a Liberal government that promised change but is really just bringing back the worst of Pierre Trudeau’s NEP and high handed ways.

Sorry I only meant that you didn’t mention the part of royalists coming to Canada. That’s all.

Sorry I missed spelled your name… Damn spellcheck..

Jack plants… you said I was only partially correct so one would naturally assume the rest was incorrect… Which Parts was I only partially correct about and which parts are totally off-the-wall..?
commented 2016-10-12 17:17:39 -0400
Leviticus you are partly correct. Canada was a decent nation until the royalists left the US to populate our land. That brought a very different Tory, never question authority, mind set.

Glenn Craig it is personal. Not just to Alberta but all the western colonies. It is also genetic. He got it from his Big Tater Pappa:
“Pierre Trudeau’s act of raising his middle finger to protesters from his seat inside a private rail car during a vacation in Salmon Arm, BC with his children on August 8, 1982.”

Its just the usual sauce for Quebec. Remember, Baby Doc claimed that Canada belongs to Quebec, so naturally the serfs must pay the master tribute.

Three more long, long and upsetting years before the bums get thrown out.

CRTC is owned by the government so good luck with that…
you’re better off storming the gates..
The only way to survive with any semblance of our former prosperity is to separate from central Canada

Charles Norris—-Our future problem will be this younger generation; right now our problems are the Liberals under JT, and the Main Stream Media. I still say if Brian and Ezra hired someone to document all the CTV lies and the CBC censoring, along with 100 thousand signatures delivered to the CRTC, something would happen or there would be no reason for the CRTC to exist. For this self- survival reason, I have faith in the anticipated CRTC punishment to these two failing news companies.

Charles Norris… The trick is to demonize and finally dispose of the small minority of people that exists that are known as “real men” and “real women”…
After that what’s left will be very easy to target and dispose of , and the funny thing is all the sodomites and the freeloaders and everybody else that thought this leftist utopia was what they were waiting for Will gladly stand in line waiting for their own disposal.
Much to the chagrin of the leftist agenda there will always be pockets of “real man” and “real women” who will lead resistance movements, recruit people and wage a war of the flea against the system.
How can one’s fellow man hate his bretheren so much that he makes it his life’s work to humiliate starve murder people and then lay waste to thousands of years of civilization.
Is this what we call progress..??

The problem with Canada is that it’s governed by Quebexican seperatists!!

The other problem with Canada is that its youngest generation is by far the most useless group of faggots in the world!!!

If Canada was sent to war today, in the same capacity it was sent to war in WWI and WWII, how many of these chicken shit, cocksucking faggot, transgender, LBGQTXXZ cowards would stand up and fight? How many of you social justice CUCKs would fight
commented 2016-10-11 21:52:58 -0400
Part of the problem with Canada and the descendants of the pioneers and settlers of this country is that we never had to fight a war of independence like the states did… That instilled into them a sense of patriotism that to this very day supports their right to the Second Amendment.
Now politicians everywhere including the USA and Canada would have you believe that the Second Amendment is for things like hunting rifles and shotguns and things like that… Much to the contrary of most people’s understanding the right to bear arms is to protect yourself from not only present danger threats but also from the consequences of an over reaching government that is hell-bent on taking us back to the time when all we were to them were cattle.
I have sympathies for the good people of Quebec and Ontario and everybody east of there but we must find a way to look after ourselves and the separation of the west is our only means of surviving the east.
We rant and rave and waste a lot of energy and time leaving comments on sites like this but what we should be doing is getting together in groups of like-minded people and knocking on doors and talking to people everywhere in an effort to educate and bring more people on board for the idea of separation to secede.
Our only hope of survival is separation as anything less and we will be living like the poppers in the Charles Dickens classic “Oliver twist”.

Jill and John, tell us how you really feel. LOL. Pitchforks and torches across the land until we are rid of these lovers of the Orwellian construct.

Western Canada separation NOW!!!!! And let’s bring the Territories with us.
commented 2016-10-11 20:23:48 -0400
Wonder how much of that taxpayer money is being “gifted” back to the Liebranos?
commented 2016-10-11 19:36:16 -0400
Just a repeat of Librano Contempt for the west – and an open display of the Laurentian Oligarchy lining up for their taxpayer funded goodies from the party they own – collusion and nepotism as usual.
commented 2016-10-11 19:29:52 -0400
I’d really like for the West to separate because our backside is becoming real sore from having to bend over for Eastern Canada.

But really … how do we motivate people to get behind the cause? Is there a way to do so?
commented 2016-10-11 19:18:26 -0400
hmm…reminds me of the ’Canadian’wheat board…only mandatory west of the Manitoba/Ontario border…
commented 2016-10-11 18:51:56 -0400

Trudeau intends to Break us, Rape us and then replace us with his friends from that Political Platform called Islam.

Now is the time to fight back even if the fight is just a few words written in a comment, every bit counts.

We need to do something now, tomorrow is always to late.
commented 2016-10-11 18:22:18 -0400
The average lo-info canucklehead does not even know this is happening.

The media helps protect the fag boy pm

Charles Norris, good points. The reason nobody gives a shit is because stories like this are never reported by the MSM . And until we as citizens hold the media accountable it will continue. I say , step 1 . In order to take our country back is to protest all media sites Canada wide. A report the truth campaign. They can’t cover shit up if they are constantly bombarded by protesters outside their buildings. Look at what happened with the Telus debacle, with idiots like capstick calling us deplorable trolls. That as far as I’m concerned is the first shot across the bow. The news has all become opinion journalism, left leaning of course.

If protesters would show up at the start of the work day and not let these propaganda artists out of their buildings to report , and cut the power off, then will not be able to spread their lies and misinformation to the sleeping unsuspecting public.

2. Once that the Canadian Pravda press is under control then we can dismantle the corrupt governments.

Holy fuck, mckenna is a dumb as they come. Time for the west to separate.
commented 2016-10-11 17:50:22 -0400
I was stuck with Papa Doc from when I first reached age of majority until my mid-30s. Watched his striving to be the father of de-confederation all that time. Then, we had 31 years of decent government to undo the damage Papa Doc did. Now, after one year of Baby Doc, we are right back to the path of destruction, as if those positive governments had not existed.

I wish I had supported the western independence movement when I was a kid and not the faith Blakney, Lougheed and Bennett had in the federation. They were almost correct though.

Liberals – the party of eating at the trough. If your China, or Bombardier, or any failed big business, you got to love the Liberals.

Oh well. That’s where most of the people live, Ontario & Quebec

Can’t wait for Western Canada Independance Day. What a party that will be. Bring it on.

This happens every time the low information voters elect a dip stick P.M.from QUE.

Why does Trudeau keep elbowing Alberta in the tit….it’s like it’s personal……..:-)
commented 2016-10-11 16:44:39 -0400
This is what you get when you elect a Quebexican seperatist!!!!!

I love The Rebel… but I don’t know how much longer I can keep coming to this site. I get soooooo gawd damn angry, no FURIOUS when I read things like this. Trudeau is raping Canada economically and socially on a dialy basis, but hardly anyone seems to give a shit.

I hope that little peice of shit traitor gets fucking hung from his neck from the top of the Peace Tower!!!!
commented 2016-10-11 16:34:51 -0400
And another round of financial raping of Canadian taxpayers.

How’s that feel Canada???

You chose the dialect french trash to run Ottawa and now you get to empty your accounts and hand it over to this piece of shit Trudeau.

Think before you vote Canada – and remember, if it’s the Canadian Media Party, it’s probably a lie.
