Trudeau Liberals risk contempt of Parliament to hide true cost of carbon tax

Brian LilleyArchive

How much will the carbon tax cost you? Your family? The company you work for? The Canadian economy? The truth is, we don’t know. But the Liberals do.

The Trudeau Liberals are being tight lipped about their plans for putting a national price on carbon dioxide emissions, in place.

We know that government’s don’t put policy in place without some bureaucrat somewhere doing an analysis of the impact of the proposed measures, but when it comes to sharing that information publicly, Trudeau and the Liberals refuse.

So much for the “openness and transparency” mantra they ran on during the election and have repeated ever since.

Watch as I bring you the latest example in their response to a formal request through Parliament for a detailed analysis of the carbon tax plan.

The Liberals responded with talking points even though the Order Paper Question that was put to them in a tradition that dates back 150 years, is supposed to elicit a formal written response from the government that does not contain spin.

Last Friday, just before going into his meeting with fellow premiers and the PM, Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall tweeted out documents obtained by and reported on by the media outlet Blacklock’s report.

The documents were heavily redacted but did say:

“The tax would cascade through the economy and prices would increase for most goods that make intensive use of carbon-based energy.”

Those are words, this government doesn’t want you to hear and news they want to hide.

There’s no question you are going to get taxed more. Trudeau and his Liberals are willing to say that much, but are refusing to tell Parliament the impact of that tax or provide the analysis of the tax even though the analysis exists and has been done.

This refusal could find them in contempt of Parliament after MP Polievre raised a point of privilege on the matter Monday. Being found in contempt of Parliament is serious business.

Justin Trudeau promised openness and transparency but he’s not delivering.

Instead he is hiding key information from Parliament and from Canadians on how much this carbon dioxide tax and pricing scheme will cost us.

All we are allowed to know for sure is that we get to pay and then pay again and pay some more for his brilliant schemes.

Every January information about the carbon tax has been given to public and after each priemers meetings. So other than flat out lying. Rebel is giving out false information.

It’s just one scam after another with these liars and deceivers! Behind the scenes the globalists are getting ready to destroy the world financial systems. Any money on deposit will be confiscated by the government.

Oops! It was late when I typed that. It should have been “the party of the damned!”

Not a problem. You will soon be able to smoke all your worries away with government dope, provided by a government dope!

Once this carbon tax scam that Junior intends to push through takes effect guaranteed that many Canadians will start to default on their mortgages, their credit cards, their hydro bill, their debts. With this tax he has also guaranteed that many low income singles, families, seniors, and disabled will be facing eviction notices or near starvation or living in the dark/cold because they will not be able to afford to pay for all of the basic necessities (hydro, food, rent). OAS, CPP, WSIB, city disability benefits and welfare benefits are NEVER increased to sufficiently cover the actual cost of inflation/increased cost of living. As per usual the government will match or exceed the actual cost increases for the public sector, they will not feel the pain but the private sector will suffer. Manufacturers will start to close their doors one by one. Unemployment will climb. People will have what a lot less disposable income (income for extras) so some restaurants will close, some stores will close adding to the unemployment. Junior’s faux fix of the faltering economy will be as was his father’s and that will be to hire more public sector employees to give the illusion he is creating jobs. The deficit, which has greatly been lied about so far, will rocket into the red, banks will threaten to call in loans, there will be the possibility of a credit downgrade meaning a larger portion of the taxes collected will go just to pay for the loans the government has racked up which will mean even higher taxes across the board to compensate. Services will be cut, equalization transfers will be reduced, the provinces will have no choice to reduce services. Doctor and nursing staff will be reduced, certain medical procedures will be disallowed, certain medication will be disallowed. Student loans and grants will be tightened, costs will soar for a higher education. Welcome to the Liberal Utopian Nightmare, this is what you voted for, enjoy the ride, better not whine or complain because it is your Liberal leader that will be inflicting the pain.

When it does hit the libs and the lib media will be blaming Harper for all the problems.

Incredible. They’re hiding this info because they know it will harm the economy, and the poor in particular. They know it was repealed in Australia. They know it’s a mess in Europe. Yet they wish to proceed. One can only conclude, that they WANT to harm the economy!

As we know, the whole point to the Global Warming scheme, as devised and explained by Maurice Strong, is to “collapse western economies”.

Brian. What did I counsel a long time ago? Don’t sit around waiting for them to admit something, they won’t! Make the accusation, and let them defend. Accuse the Liberals of deliberately harming the economy because in truth, they despise capitalist Canada and are carrying out Strong’s desire to collapse Canada’s economy, just as Notely is doing to Alberta!

’scuse me Brian. Why – at the 4 min mark – do we get a pop-up about Russians hacking the US election?
have you been hacked!?!?!?

Contempt of Parliament, contempt for real people and contempt for scientific fact.

Contempt of Parliament: these are globalists, they have no loyalty to this nation, they only follow the agendas of foreign bureaucracies.

Contempt fore working and low income Canadians: This will prove to be< as it has in other jurisdictions< the largest wide specrum tax grab in history – this will effect everything and be rolled down the supply chain from producers to consumers – prices will soar for food, home heating, maufactured goods and anything transported to market.

Contempt for science: there has been no global warming for 18 years and the roll of CO2 in heating has been proven to be mathematically flawed by a power of 3 – also this tax will have no measurable effect on the climate one way or the other.

This is a vanity project of Trudeau, Butts and transnational climate profiteers and it will devastate our economy. If they planned to destroy us they couldn’t have conceived of a more efficient way to do it.

The whole bunch of them should be “LOCKED UP”.

Now we have a chance to flatten the tires

I like to refer to the liberals as the “party of damned!”

Keith, your videos are enlightening but painful. To realize that so few are in touch with reality. I hope we can turn this around in a few years

This pothead has to be stopped. He is a menace to society. Allowing 18 and up to have 30 grams of weed will only contribute health issues, mental and physical, and costs in the billions to our young

I already hold tru-DOH! in contempt and his party members who are spineless bastards are disgusting..

Canadians are naive and ill-informed and it’s almost like pulling teeth to get them to do any pushing back when it comes to speaking out against and standing up to politicians. I wonder if there was some kind of brainwashing in our schools. I hear a lot of, “Oh, well, there’s nothing you can do about it”. Good idea Marty Ashfield!

LEVITICUS 2013 I’m all for separating from Quebec and Ontario and the Easterners. I have been behind this for a very long time.
BUT, will it ever happen? Because for it to mean something and be beneficial to us that support the idea it must happen now or soon.
There has been talk of Western separation for a very long time, but that is all it has been so far – talk.
I think a massive gathering and march on Ottawa and a tax revolt will shake up the traitors. After all what can they do to several million of us – jail us? tell us we must pay our taxes or else?
They can all go to hell, I’m so tired of all this bullshit from a government that doesn’t give to shakes about its people.
I’m a senior and a pensioner (Canada Pension only) so yeah I will be hurting in the worst way along with millions of other pensioners. What about the poor people of Canada?
That f*cking asshole Trudeau doesn’t even know that there are people that are struggling now before his F*CKING tax.
Smug bastard – and he is a true bastard in every meaning of the word.

If a Trudeau government continues in the direction they have adopted Canada’s future is in serious question. I don’t think Canada will be able to survive the damage wrought by this latest Trudeau, we were fortunate to have survived the first one, and people kept voting that wack job back into office. It is a sad statement of the mentality of Canadians when they vote somebody like Trudeau into office. It’s a clear statement and demonstration that many Canadians have no self esteem or confidence, so they support an anti Canadian, left wing zealot like Trudeau, hoping for positive change. But failing to recognize the questionable character of their candidate of choice. All those who voted for Trudeau are blind, gullible and easily led down the garden path of destruction as we are witness to. I hope they have all learned their lesson, because if they vote this spend like crazy, cackling monkey back in, the level of their stupidity will be confirmed and we will not survive another term of Trudeau’s Globalist Fantasy Agenda.

Marty Ashfield… Excellent plan and if that doesn’t work I suggest the west just separate from the rest of
“Cuba North”

Yes they’ll have to be voted out but Liza I agree with you. They say we need this tax for our grandchildren but all we’ll be leaving them is massive debt. I said before that a big enough hit in the pocket book is what it will take to turn lib voters against them. That and their entitlement culture as well as their lack of transparency. This will be the turning point. The only Trudeau fans who will be left will the snowflakes who don’t pay their own bills.

What are Senior Citizens going to do, Justin, when you introduce your Carbon Scam. What happened to your Better ‘Deal for Seniors’ promise. Oh yes, You are a Liberal, Election promises do not count, I forgot, how stupid of me.

Here are a couple of videos for you to look at, Justin, You don’t have to worry, You do not have to read anything. It would be a good idea to have someone with you, though, when you watch them, so they can explain to you what a Con Artist You are.

I suggest the Rebel crowdfund an anti-carbon tax rally across the country, in every province and in as many cities and towns as possible and keep going until the Traitor gets the message.
If he does not get the message, then organize the largest protest march this country has ever seen and surround the parliament building in Ottawa.
Start a tax revolt – “we the people of Canada refuse to pay another cent in taxes of any kind until the Traitorous dictator Justin Trudeau steps down and resigns along with ALL of his key (top) ministers.”

Ken and Peter,

The Yanks voted out their version of a liberally corrupt party, but that LPC is doing its best to steal the election from the sitting President on down, and they may succeed.

So what hope for Canada which has ever been the banana republic.
