Trudeau’s carbon tax gamble just got riskier for Canada with Trump’s election

Brian LilleyArchive

As premiers and business leaders call on Justin Trudeau and his Liberals to slow down on the carbon tax plan, Trudeau's climate change minister celebrates getting a "carbon pricing" award and doubles down on pushing ahead.

Watch as I explain how this is bad for Canada, for our economy and the jobs of everyday Canadians in the wake of Donald Trump's election in the USA.

Without the US and China it is more than useless.

She reminds me of when we were kids in school and if we did something right we got a gold star by our name and we were supposed to feel good about that…
These people may want to rethink how their names are going to be represented in history. it’s too late for reelection but then who knows.

You will note that she has assumed the defensive position of empi komai in order to fend off any elbow strike to the tit he might deliver……..:-)

Since the Boy Blunder has only enough brainpower to find the gas cap on his daddy’s Mercedes-Benz, there is obviously more at work here than shackling Canada’s economy for no valid reason… Somebody has his hand up the Boy Blunder’s butt making him do these things and that is once again Gerald “I want o humiliate Western Society” Butts… And Bimbo McKenna is more than willing to make herself part of the circus, all for that shiny plaque worth all of about $9.99…

MR. CRANKYPANTS commented: “Hopefully the job-destroying carbon tax will convince the millennials and their kind that they made a bad choice on the ballot.”

Nah, The Communist Broadcast Corp. along with Constant Trudeau Vision (CTV) will produce another documentary on how beautiful his hair is, and they’ll all fall in love again!

He is still an adolescent and needs schooling. When you have daddy’s money you can act out your fantasies but the rest of us be damned. Hopefully the job-destroying carbon tax will convince the millennials and their kind that they made a bad choice on the ballot.

Obama bows to a Saudi King. Saudi king bows to Trump. Trudeau just shites his diaper, poor little potato, not ready for the big league.

Check out that cover photo. I think Trudope the Younger is preparing to meet Trump and thinks grabbing a pussy will do the trick. Looks like he’s up to the elbow.

Bill Elder… We agree to disagree..
It ain’t called “crown land” for nothing..
commented 2016-11-19 15:23:39 -0500
Has Catherine McFuckup gotten past grade 9 yet? What a COMPLETE moron. Perfect match for Crysta Freeland…..Total IQ= 2. Add tuber tot’s 1 and you have 3. Isn’t that a comforting thought? This is more stupid than even Monty Python’s Circus could dream up.

As for the land discussions between Bill Elder, Leviticus etc. I don’t know enough to even comment, but what I DO know is we had better keep an eye on the communist regime in Alberta. Watch out or we will be without property rights, hunting rights, etc etc etc and the list keeps growing.

Hopefully Mr. Trump can help save our asses before it is too late.

Leviticus 2013 commented – “the crownland is owned not by Canadians but it’s owned by investors from the city of London..”

No crown land is owned by the people within the province it resides, the provincial government is the arbiter – there are 10 governments acting as trustees of the land within their borders – the feds have sweet F all to say about land, resources or property disbursal – if they did we’d be a destitute 3rd world communist backwater by now.

The debt the feds run has collateral backing by your productivity, not your land, you are essentially a tax slave – it is the fed’s taxing power which floats their credit and debt with lenders

perhaps instead of running around with Obama he should GROW A SET AND GO TALK TO THE GUY WHO MATTERS TRUMP. Obama is headed to the dustbin of history as a lame duck. We would be very lucky if trudeau follows him next election in Canada. is he to chicken shit to meet him or more than likely trump doesn’t want to waste his time on mr selfie.

Would someone explain to me why almost every time I see Trudeau he is butting heads with people…in their face…even men…if he isn’t hugging them he is staring them in the face. I am sure there are many foreign leaders who find this an invasion of their space and a confirmation of his intentions to force himself and his will on others. Just watch this from now on and you will begin to see the pattern…yesterday’s National Post for example, (Nov.18, 2016) had him almost nose to nose with Mauricio Macri, President of Argentina…appropriately the heading was “Time to Tango in Argentina”…either he needs eyeglasses or he is a bully.

During the first term of the Obama admin, while the house and senate were also democrat controlled, a carbon tax was given a pass…
Why might that be?
commented 2016-11-19 08:34:34 -0500
what, according to climate barbie, is the right temperature? what, according to mr. small potato head, is the right element virtue? (carbon is NOT carbon dioxide) take your time, i’ll wait

The liberals love their awards and to pat themselves on the back. This award was to fool the public into believing that they have a licence to implement the carbon tax. The gossamer princess is truly as dumb as Trudeau is. In fact there isn’t anyone worthy of being elected in his entire cabinet. A bunch of liberal fools, thinking they are the smartest kids on the hill.

This carbon tax will ultimately create more pollution.
Business will start to leave Canada and expand in countries like China, India and Mexico that have no environmental laws to speak of.

Taxing a country that produces less than 1% of global emissions is just plain irresponsible and ridiculous!!! The sheer size of Canada and all of our forests take care of all our emissions and then some.

Trudeau needs to be hung for treason!!! Nobody can be this stupid unless they are deliberately trying to destroy the country!!!

The 43rd Canadian federal election is scheduled to take place on or before October 21, 2019. …mark that date on you calendars.

Bill elder said..
Leviticus 2013 – Well not that the feds wouldn’t like to sell the sod out from under us but fortunately all the land within provincial boundaries(with some small exceptions like federal parks) is crown land administered under exclusive jurisdiction of the province – Tater tot has nothing to say about crown land use or dispersion..
some of what you say maybe true but the crownland is owned not by Canadians but it’s owned by investors from the city of London..
And that all rolls back to the UN buddy…
as well as all of our utilities, our water our corporations and including private land and farmland for sale….
There will never be a war in Canada because it’s all for sale..!!! I hold with my original argument.
commented 2016-11-19 01:24:16 -0500
Stupidity on this level is too incomprehensible to be true. It has to be deliberate-no other option. Which means he seriously wants to bankrupt the country and put us in a massive recession. This is Orwellian indeed but hopefully it backfires and and gets him out the door that much more easily come next election. Also, if they want to sneak in millions more immigrants, how do they think carbon emissions will go down?
commented 2016-11-19 00:21:35 -0500
Oh, McKenna, why don’t you go stick your head in a bucket of water & take your stupid award with you & btw Mr. Trudeau I have reserved our room at the Holiday Inn, but Mr. Governor General, I know how pleased you are about us being in charge now, but sorry you can’t join us.
So much for “doing the right thing”, you keep blathering every chance you get Mr. Trudeau & listening to Canadians, it’s all so hypocritical, but you don’t give a hoot as long as you reward the environmentalists you care more about than the honest hard working people that you pretend to be helping or want to help. Maybe you should go look up the meaning of honesty & ethical. Your stupid carbon tax will impoverish Canadians more, slow down our economy & it won’t solve a bloody thing. Already, my grocery bill is getting higher & higher every week, this without this regressive tax not imposed yet. Why don’t you get rid of all that air between your ears & install some gray matter instead.

Harold Hoff it is pretty amazing. It does explain why so many cannot do basic math.

Jan G, Billy Howard and Leviticus: Awww cummon guys we aren’t dealing with the anti-Christ here, this is a walkin talkin spud is all – he doesn’t have the intelligence to be sinister – WSYIWYG – a tater tot bumbling his way through life, the intellectual equivalent of an inebriate knocking over stuff and doing face-plants.

Sheesh let’s not get metaphysical when we look at the kindergarten that is Fed Cabinet now.

Carbon award??? OMG, It’s astonishing how many seriously and terminally stupid people there are.. it’s a sad indictment on our education, or should I call it … indoctrination system.

The feds own nothing but the national debt – they can have that because I didn’t cause it and I ain’t paying for it – and when a lot of other westerners being screwed out of our productivity wake up they’ll be joining Alberta in a tax strike..

Billy Howard and Leviticus:
You are right.
Justin Trudeau wants to rule the world and he wants to be the leader of the New World Order.
The attached is an interesting article on the New World Order quoting JFK and others on the dangers.
An interesting statement from this article sounds like JT: “He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist.”
Trudeau is very smart, cunning and very dangerous.
A wolf in sheep’s clothing.
