Trudeau's BIG carbon plans just got bigger

Brian LilleyArchive

We all know Justin Trudeau has promised to put a price on carbon that will cost the average Canadian family thousands of dollars per year. 

Well, new documents released from Environment Canada show the "experts” are calling for Trudeau to make the carbon tax six times the current size and to put a carbon tariff on imports.

Watch as I explain in real terms, what this could mean for you.

Quebec had a vote to separate now the rest of Canada needs a vote.PERIOD.

David… Instead of embracing defeat maybe take matters into your own hands or join one of the groups and start by inspiring people… Be a leader if that’s what we need but don’t embrace defeat.!!

To all of those people here who think and say that the western provinces, BC, AB, SK, MB, should and are going to separate, I say “good luck with that”.
I am in my 50’s. I have been through a lot in this country politically. I have seen a lot. I am pro western separation and I have been for decades.
As soon as the western separatists starting making Facebook groups and organizations, I joined them all. AIM etc.
I have been spending the past 6+ months asking them “When will you have a party and a representative that I can vote for?”, “Give me someone to vote for.”.
Their replies: “umm err ehh well… we won’t have party status or anyone to vote for, for at least two elections or more…”
That is 8 to 12+ YEARS from now!! I will be retired by then, possibly even deceased by then. Canada’s economy will be in ruins by then.
Wake up. By the time the western separatists even get themselves organized and votable, it will be way too late.
Everyone in the groups usually spend all day just daydreaming about it and masturbating to the idea, and all Facebook posts in the groups are simply uptight drivel and anti-islam shares. A massive waste of time. I believe it will never happen. Or at least not in my lifetime.

Leviticus & Glenn, Please agree to disagree & make up. You both have such great comments on almost every issue it would be a shame to have you quarrel.
So far as Trudeaus’ big carbon plans go, my hope is he will be long gone before he can implement anymore of his I hate Canada & Canadians agenda.

And given past history, they will also be stopping to buy dairy products on the Washington side of “the line” at one quarter of the price in B.C…. Thank you Canadian marketing boards…

Well put Bill Elder… And as much s the social media have “shorted” the cycle from government action to reaction, it has filled in a lot of the fox holes where politicians used to dive while waiting for the bad news to blow over… The reaction in the Lower Mainland of B.C. to the overnight jump in gas prices to $1.42 a litre has been swift, and there’s nary a Greenie to be found tonight who can explain why “that’s good for us”… To say nothing of what this “taste of Trudeau’s carbon tax future for Canada” portends… Given past history, I would forecast that the lineups at the US/B.C. border are once again going to swell rather quickly as Lower Mainlanders head to Blaine or Sumas or Lynden to gas up… And, I would put some money on it, you won’t find ANYBODY in one of those lineups willing to admit they voted Liberal…

And by the way Glen… I knew it… I just knew you were from down east .. my instinct just told me that.
And now you’re bringing your in indoctrinated views and opinions of the Quebecious failed attempts with you like a vacuum in a jet stream.
Their reason for wanting separation was far different than the reasons in the west why now separation is being considered..!!
BTW.. I never insulted you.
Your holier than thou attitude proceeds you and the assumptions that you make our student in Roman Catholicism..
You really aren’t as brilliant as you think you are.!
And how do you know I don’t like you… I’ve never even met you… These are only differences of opinion.!!
You assume too much and blindly protest because you flail and wail your lost causes before everybody but are willing to meekly suffer the gentle rubs the Laurentian elites administered to you the whole time attempting to apply logic to it as a lost cause.
The Quebecious did not really want to separate they merely wanted to gain attention to further their agenda while using the useful idiots below them as they believed in their leaders lies.!!
In the west we may want to separate for cultural and financial survival along with freedoms while not having to work almost into our 70s until we are released from bondage.!
Again you assume too much
And fight too little.!!

Glen Craig… You flatter yourself..
DON’T..!!!
It’s not manly or becoming to flatter yourself.!

Glenn Craig – Re: Alberta and separation – two words for you – Gordon Kestler – Alberta elected a separatist MLA under the WCC banner – Christie could never beat that in BC.
commented 2017-04-02 20:29:39 -0400
Yeah, it’ll cut carbon all right, by wrecking the economy. I mean, if there were a way for each of us to reduce our carbon footprint, we’d simply do it. So adding a tax to the point when you can no longer afford to gas your vehicle or buy anything but food from the store, you’ll simply stop doing those things, and the economy will nose dive. Simple as that. If he wants to reduce the emissions, he needs to invent something – like a zero emissions car, and that’s not going to happen either. So what’s left? Collapse the economy, just like Maurice Strong was aiming for!!

@LEVITICUS 2013…I know you personally dislike me…I am the embodiment of why your christian church is failing. But I lived in Quebec when the Parti Quebecois came to power an I left shortly after the first separation referendum. If Rene levesque and his supporters could not make it happen…it just can’t happen.

Have you ever heard of Doug Christie? Probably not unless you are related to one of the Ukranian guards he defended. He was the most ardent western separatist who ever lived and his eloquence far outshines yours. I was one of his clients’ supporters and advisors.

Alberta can barely get it together to get their conservative party forgiven for abuse of power and throw off the NDP scourge for that kharma….western separation is a distant dream.

You can insult me all you like…behind the mask of your …nom de guerre.

Anyone who thinks the Trudeau government will outlive the impact of this economy killing tax has been living in a cave while the E-frontier made political reactions faster and political agenda cycles shorter. Trudeau has abandoned most of his promised platform because their real polling shows they would go down to defeat if they push it.

The day where Liberals gear up to give us one radical irreversible crappy law is over. Negative reactions are shorter, more intense and the middle swing vote is wider than ever. Carbon taxing is a bluff to salve radical green NGOs but I doubt if even the boy blunder is dumb enough to stake an election on this.
commented 2017-04-02 10:35:11 -0400
The carbon tax is simply dishonest and I would argue this with the boy wonder on the hill. It is an excuse to suck money from our pockets to fund their boondoggle pet projects. I hope the Canadian electorate wakes up soon and votes these thieves out of office. If they were serious about carbon pollution, why did they eliminate the transit pass tax credit?
commented 2017-04-02 07:20:52 -0400
Shrug. In the last federal election 63 percent of the electorate cast ballots for the Liberals, NDP or Greens. Give ‘em what they voted for. turdo la doo can quadruple the carbon tax and multiply the debt tenfold as far as I’m concerned. Old Isaiah said something about it….lambs to the slaughter…..

Andrew Stephenson – I gather you have been “off planet” for a while?… As of April 19, 2016, Brian Pallister’s conservatives run Manitoba with 40 seats, not the Liberals… And the “liberals” in British Columbia are an amalgam of liberals and conservatives and have been so for over a decade… And Alberta as well as B.C. and Saskatchewan hold a lot of “negotiating power” while India, Japan and China thirst for oil and natural gas…
commented 2017-04-02 02:33:35 -0400
Andrew Stephenson if Alberta is of little concern then why do other oil producing nations pay people to protest our oil? Seems to me they are very worried.
commented 2017-04-02 02:32:39 -0400
Andrew Stephenson Alberta does not need to have BC or Manitoba to separate. And there is great demand for our oil , hence the huge pipelines, why are we getting it shipped in from the middle east, that is lunacy and more risky.
commented 2017-04-02 02:32:21 -0400
Glen Craig said this.
Your neighbours to the south get your oil at a deep discount because they are the only customer.
-————————
You sound like you might be one of those eastern closet dwellers.. you know the provincial welfare recipients that couldn’t make a dollar for themselves if it wasn’t for welfare paid for by Alberta and Alberta’s oil.
I think that you’re terrified of anything related to Western separation and like any good leftist would do anything to de-rail it including to speak of it in any negative terms. If the west separated how would you ever make a living.??
Our neighbors to the south in less you’re living in some foreign land are also your neighbors to the south stupid.

“Second, It really doesn’t solve anything. Alberta’s got little global negotiating power in a world awash in far more oil than it needs.”

That reminds me. It wasn’t too many years ago that the lefties were wringing their hands over “peak oil” You don’t hear much of that fear mongering anymore, do you?
commented 2017-04-01 22:25:52 -0400
Andrew… The tide rises and the tide receipts… Today there’s lots of oil tomorrow who knows, the day after there’s an oil shortage again… It’s been like that since people started monitoring and paying attention to market cycles.
Supply and demand causes ebbs and flows and I would prefer to take my chances with the ebbs and flows without the interference of Laurentian elites or any of their supporters.!!
commented 2017-04-01 22:16:10 -0400
That’s just foolish Glen… They will ship anything that you pay them too, that’s why there are ships in the deep water ports.. I think it’s called commerce… I want my stuff taken to market people provide that service if you pay them.
commented 2017-04-01 21:54:45 -0400
Western separatism is a non-starter. For one thing, the libs hold the majority of seats in both BC and Manitoba, so there’s some tacit approval of Trudeau there.

Second, It really doesn’t solve anything. Alberta’s got little global negotiating power in a world awash in far more oil than it needs.
commented 2017-04-01 18:47:09 -0400
@Leviticus 2013 Your neighbours to the south get your oil at a deep discount because they are the only customer. It is of no advantage to them to provide you with access to tidewater.

Venezuela, here we come. Better get used to eating rats, cats and dogs people (though judging by the number of chinese we have here now, I doubt eating dog will faze many). Maybe I can still get a passport for my parents Eastern European homeland. Anyone else over 40, between open border migration and far left socialism in the west today, did you ever think you would see the day when Eastern Europe would sound like a preferable destination? Orban here I come!

Andy Neimers, as long as our money flows to their coffers, they can simply buy enough votes to keep them in. Wynne has already been pandering to the public workers unions beginning with the teachers and has also been meeting with the Islamic groups to hear what their vote will cost us so, I’m willing to bet she will get in again! Add to this, we know trudeau’s open borders, inviting the entire globe on in to claim "refugee’ while handing us the bill for them for life along with all the Muslims he is bringing and inviting in who also will be feeding off of us for life , is a BIG GUARANTEE WE ARE NEVER, EVER GOING TO GET RID OF HIM!!!! IN fact he is SO CERTAIN HE HAS THE NEXT ELECTION ALL WRAPPED UP, HE BLEW HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS AT THE U.N. AND HIS ISLAMIC HOLES TO BUY HIMSELF A SEAT AT THE U.N. AND THIS WON’T BE DECIDED UNTIL WELL AFTER THE NEXT ELECTION. Also, he is having Sussex Drive completely redone to the tune of TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS- INCLUDING BUILDING A SPECIAL “CHILDREN’S/NANNIES WINGAND ALSO A $2 PLUS MILLION SECURITY SYSTEM- ALL FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY!!!! BTW, they haven’t even finished these renovations yet which means of course the Trudeaus’ aren’t in residence yet but once in THERE IS NO WAY HE IS MOVING OUT!!!
