Trudeau’s carbon tax could knock $1.8B per year out of Saskatchewan economy

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On Friday’s show, Todd Mackay, Prairie Director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, joined me to discuss how Ottawa is "hiding its carbon tax math."


While the benefits of Trudeau’s carbon tax in his fight against global warming are hard to find, Canadians are becoming more aware of the real costs.

But the Liberals continue to refuse to release their estimates on exactly how penalizing the carbon tax will be, so the province of Saskatchewan has gone ahead and done a study of their own.

Watch as Todd shares the striking results of this comprehensive analysis.

Saskatchewan’s carbon emissions are 70 million tonnes per year. We can multiply this by $10 or $50 to determine how much will be raised by the tax. What we do NOT know is how government(s) are going spend this money. There is “talk” of it being 100% returned to the provinces but this will, no doubt, come with green strings attached. Absent details on how the money will be spent makes any economic analysis a worthless. Western Canada is a fossil fuel superpower. Climate change is a hoax. Western Canada must separate to achieve its economic potential. www.ecofascism.com

Only an anti-Canadian alt-left government would call Canada a “post-national state”, invite millions of unvetted migrants to come to Canada , and call illegal border-jumpers “irregular migrants”. Alt-left Liberals out!

“East of the Ottawa River” are setting themselves up for a major “nosebleed session” in the coming years and seem willfully blind to that reality… And when that “face plant” reality does arrive, I, and Western Canada, will have no sympathy for it… Rather, we will all be cheering…

Trudeau is going to had billions over to the commie’s at the UN. Which is nothing but treason.

Wealth redistribution via Carbon Taxes does nothing to reduce emissions. Every thing that does reduce emissions these use-less idiots are opposed to.

“If empirical evidence proves that carbon taxes increase global CO2 emissions, then there is clearly another agenda for calling for their implementation. Technocrats seek control and societal engineering, not protecting or saving the planet. ⁃ TN Editor”

“Declines were led by the US (-0.5%). This is the ninth time in this century that the US has had the largest decline in emissions in the world. This also was the third consecutive year that emissions in the US declined, though the fall was the smallest over the last three years.” https://www.bp.com/en/global/corporate/energy-economics/statistical-review-of-world-energy/co2-emissions.html

Let’s break it down to it’s simplest form on trudeau’s irregulars..

You wait in line to pay for your groceries….right?…Then you see all sorts of shoppers walking out the door without paying..free food for them because they didn’t do the paper work and the existing Laws don’t apply to them… or they shove their way in front of you in the line and bark at the cashier it’s their right not to pay..because trudeau said so…the liberalist globalist freaks are going to get a rude awakening…

Trudeau is clearly out to demolish Canada as a nation and make it a broken, poverty-stricken playground for the enemies of Western civilization who want to come here and set up shop to demolish the Free World.

Gerry, I don’t care if we ever have another PM, it can just be the president of the west.
commented 2018-07-15 15:31:00 -0400
I hope this is the last PM from QUE we ever have.

I don’t care if The Clown Prince Trrudeau’s Carbon Tax Grab is costing Canadian taxpayers $1.98 a year or $1.8 Billion a year. It’s called “stealing” in my books. That low life P.O.S Crime Minister and his band of merry thieves are stealing from Canadians. Lieberals are very good at stealing money from people, just look at that vile witch Wynne and how money she stole from Ontario taxpayers.

None of this is going to change until we have premiers who unequivocally, and publicly, state, “Come and freakin’ take it.”

It’s the same with the Alberta’s transfer payments. That was just a Turdolt Sr. plan to rip off Alberta, and appease the Separatists, and unfair as it was, at least Alberta was booming and had the money.

But Quebec keeps whining to separate anyway so…

End the payments…

And in the next referendum vote, let the rest of Canada vote.

Even if we can’t get Quebec to pay its share of the national debt, I’d bet it STILL would be cheaper in the long run to cut them loose.

Plus it would even out the voting between Ontario and the rest of the country.

Trudeau’s carbon tax will increase the price of everything from Condoms to Cornflakes but it will not make one iota of difference to the mean temperature of this planet.

On the other hand, the hot air ejected from various orifie in Trudeau’s body will cause a sharp rise in the average temperature of Canada.

Carbon Tax is just a scam to raise money to cover the cost of the brown furry things that Trudeau insists on importing. In other words it is a scam to force the Canadian public to pay for their own demise.
