MAJOR RALLY THIS WEEKEND: No pipeline? Fine, then no carbon tax! - Repeal the carbon tax!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


For years The Rebel and our viewers warned that Rachel Notley and Justin Trudeau were coming to destroy the oil and gas industry.

But the fancy people scoffed. Especially the mainstream media. They love Notley and Trudeau — demonizing anyone who protests against them as “far right”.

The truth is, Notley and Trudeau have always hated the oilsands.

So they lied to us: they said if we just pay a carbon tax, then environmental extremists would let the pipelines go through.

They knew that was a lie. It was their own friends who were blocking the pipelines. Even their own staff.

They killed the Northern Gateway pipeline.

Then they killed the Energy East pipeline.

And now they’re killing the last one, Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline. 

Enough is enough!

Join us for the largest rallies against the carbon tax ever organized.

No they don’t. "

Yes, they do. You already pay gas tax to the Feds. They can increase that, even give the hike a cute name.

I’m curious – do you not wonder if all this posturing could just be an empty election promise? I mean, surely it’s only left wing politicians that make promises they can’t possibly keep… right? right? lol.

I agree with those who say NO to the carbon tax, no matter what. The pipeline needs to go through. IMO having government “buy into” the pipeline is ludicrous, I don’t like where this could end up. The current governments are anti-oil, the recent posturing/moves are only adjustments to the way they present themselves for public scrutiny.

I’ll be glad when the next election comes but unsure if our province/country can survive that long. We need a mechanism to remove politicians who are out of control. Say for instance, if our locally elected representative not listening, constituents could “rally and petition” to re-elect a new representative.

I’m an oil patch worker, pipeliner for many years. Most of what we have and use, comes from oil & gas. Take any product and follow it back to where it originates (raw material), oil and/or gas is there in some shape or form along the way to your doorstep.

They cannot dictate any tax they want on at a federal level to the provinces… It does not work that way ’

The Feds have full rights to levy taxes, and collect them differently depending upon provincial policies as they do that with G/HST, both of which are federal taxes.

The carbon tax is just another federal excise tax, exactly the same as the excise tax you already pay on many items including fuel. They’re raising the gas tax and calling the difference the carbon tax.

The provinces have been offered an opportunity to do it themselves, and if not the Feds will levy one instead. Nothing at all illegal about that – the feds can levy or not levy taxes at will.

FLAT EARTH. .FLAT WATER: The notwithstanding clause allows a province to override a section of the Charter, it doesn’t allow a province to override the particular policies of government. The Carbon tax is a tax, it isn’t an area that the notwithstanding clause applies to. That’s why provinces like Saskatchewan have taken the issue of constitutionality of the carbon tax to court. Whether I like it or not, such areas of taxation may well be within the federal mandate so I wouldn’t hold my breath that you would see the carbon tax disappear unless the Liberals are booted out of power and the federal tax can be repealed by the CPC.

You don’t sound like a Ballbertan.
commented 2018-04-11 19:02:02 -0400
Michael petch.. The federal government or Prime Minister is not a dictator to the provinces… We all have a not withstanding clause that entitles us to go with or to deny federal intrusion into the provinces.. they were doing this knowing full well that the NDP is not here to support the people only to further the agenda of whatever government was empower federal government.!!
commented 2018-04-11 18:57:18 -0400
The carbon tax is not acceptable under any circumstances… Anybody that goes for “no pipeline no carbon tax” is begging to be taxed to death

What was wrong with the event on the April 10th, besides not having a donate to Rebel Media button to profit from? I was in attendence of that one. This one seems to be a more partisan rally than the one on April 10th at McDougall Center given that someone realized that an NDP speaker might be a good idea. And if you actually listened to Jason Kenney’s speech at the April 10th Rally he took aim at BC government and Trudeau. I don’t think that was an accident, because Kenney realizes that the UPC working with Notley is likely in the best interests of Albertans. That probably doesn’t fit in with the Rebel Media narrative.

Notley never promised that social license would win pipeline approval, but what she and Gallant suggested was that pipeline approval would likely yield a better chance of support in Canada. That appears to not be the case, but even I must admit there was probably a better chance that social license could win approval than not.

As for carbon tax, if Notley and Alberta didn’t come up with their own the Federal government would have imposed one on us. I’m not for the Carbon Tax, but the federal Liberals put us in a corner one way or the other about such a tax. We weren’t going to avoid it. I am willing to admit that the tax we did get isn’t revenue neutral and it is nothing more than a consumption tax that is being funneled into general revenue to reduce the deficit.

Can’t make it to the protest, but hope MANY can. I would simply like to know where the carbon tax money goes (or gets wasted on) – mostly the same thing.
What I think should happen is we put a carbon tax on ALL energy going through our pipelines of, say 5 cents/liter and then see how the greens feel about that. Then at least our government has someone else’s money to waste rather than just our own.

Too long a trip from QC but I have contributed to the cost. Wish you a great rally.

Regardless of pipelines, there should never have been nor should there never be a useless Carbon Tax.

I completely agree!
commented 2018-04-11 12:18:28 -0400
I will attend Calgarys rally and I hope many will take a couple hours out of their day to show support for repealing & scraping this unacceptable tax on everything ,regardless of pipelines ! Canadians its high time we stop being so complacent we need to stand up be heard and crush these socialist governments ! No carbon taxes no NDP .no Liberals .and No CINO’s vote them out & hold them accountable failure to act now only delays the inevitable civil war .

A nation of sheep soon begets a government of wolves "E. R. Murrow " ,hence Truedeu Notley Horgan Wynne .

Repeal the transfer payments while you at it. They need to return the 160 plus Billion stolen from Albertans with interest.

ATTENTION: Trudeau, Butts, McKenna, Carr, Notley, Horgan and Weaver:

You should be ashamed of yourselves. This is not play time in the school yard. Time to stop dicking around. All of You!

And if you happened to have voted for these bums, you are the problem.

I hope the crowd chants lock her up again. Maybe this time the conservative politicians will not turn on the people at the rally. Well, I can hope.

Do not forget about dropping “equalization” completely. We in the West have paid our dues plus a lot of Quebec’s dues. No more money from the west. Get off your ass and start to contributing to this confederation you bunch of spoiled Leeches. Your free ride is over.

Ontario is the first opportunity to install a government committed to rejecting the Trudeau energy agenda.
Whatever an Ontarian can do to unseat the witch Wynne will give impetus to the effort to reclaim our country .

Its too long a trip for me,(1000 km) so I contributed instead. I will be watching MSM and The Rebel this weekend to see the comeback of the abused Alberta citizens from the hands of the Federal and Provincial Governments.
Hopefully the rallies will be well attended and " professional " as to make Kenny reconsider his need for The Rebel’s support.

The carbon taxes are doing their job to save environment. Already two pipelines stopped.
