Vote for Paris deal makes CPC “conservative” in name only

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

I generally think of politicians and political parties as a necessary evil. We pay them to make decisions that affect our lives but it seems these days they’re more focused on saying the right thing to the media instead of doing the right thing for the people. 

Today’s politicians don’t work for you and me, they work for their parties and in the case of the Conservative Party of Canada, they’re choosing to work for people that will never vote for them. That seemed obvious when new leader Andrew Scheer, whipped votes to ensure MPs supported a Liberal motion on the UN Climate Change Paris Agreement.

Watching CPC MPs up-vote a motion on the Paris Accord, and then seeing that Andrew Scheer’s expenses for just one year are over $365K, makes me wonder how they’re any different than the Liberals.

We keep excusing away the fact that these politicians aren't standing up for us simply because the word “conservative” is in their party name. Somehow we think that means they’ll inherently stand up for taxpayers and hold the Liberals to account.

But that’s not happening and we have to let them know we aren’t happy by doing something about it.

If you’re with me on this, visit Backstabbers.ca and sign the petition.

Let’s send a message to the Conservative Party of Canada that we won’t support them until they start working for us.

When oil is back up to $200 / barrel the people who voted for this will look like fools.

I hope everybody stops giving money to the party, and gives it all to Cheryl Gallant’s campaign.

The Truth About The Paris Climate Accord. 12 min.

…….nothing but wealth re-distribution. Highway robbery. Will Scheer if he were to be PM, refuse to pay the prerequisite ‘contributions’? Can he tell Canadians, with a straight face, that our economy will not be severely effected by the continued hobbling of our resource sector, due to ‘promises’ of reduced carbon dioxide emissions (which will make practically 0 difference to anything) to a foreign body only interested in global restructuring?
A farce, a lie. Inside and out anyway you cut it, unless Scheer would have Canada renege on it’s promise now that he has voted to sign on. That, it seems to me is worse PR than saying ‘forgetaboutit’ right from the beginning, and having the Liberals call us a bad name. So really, just how ‘non binding’ is this agreement again?

Not any less pissed off today.

Signing onto the Paris Accord we will voluntarily be punishing ourselves and self imposing unfair disadvantage. on ourselves We will be expected to pay up internationally determined ‘contributions’ . China has nothing to lose. It will go on its merry way until 2030, then it will supposedly comply to this non binding agreement. Does anyone think they really will, EVER?
This is self imposed hobbling, makes no sense and is nothing less than an international carbon tax which will cost Canadians in more ways than just the ‘internationally determined contributions’. This is self sacrifice for what?
This agreement IS a carbon tax. Will Scheer now come out and say he will ignore it? I doubt it. It is a self imposed international carbon tax and make no mistake, Canadians will pay.

Andrew Stephenson I wouldn’t call signing onto the Paris Accord after the Americans refused to, ‘cooperating’ with the United States . All we have done is cut off our noses to spite our face.

Just by the absurd number of dead heads that Canada’s tax payer paid to go on vacation in Paris says a lot . Were they even qualified to be there ? The money could have been spend on many other things than these pigs at the trough . Why won’t anyone show us how much it cost for this joke ?

Hi Holly. Keep all those nasty incidents from the past alive and well entrenched into the minds of the voters. I love all your vids.

Supporting the Paris Accord means supporting the carbon tax. We were deceived. He is not a conservative. "
No, it doesn’t.

He supported limiting carbon emissions, but rejected the carbon tax as a mechanism to achieve that.

This was right on his website. https://web.archive.org/web/20170525150625/http://www.andrewscheer.com/scrap_the_carbon_tax

“As Prime Minister, Andrew will cancel the Liberal Carbon Tax. He will support a sector by sector approach to reduce greenhouse gases in cooperation with industry and the United States. This will protect Canada’s environment while keeping jobs in Canada and more money in your pocket. "

This comment is not incompatible with supporting Paris. There is no deception on his end.

Jay Kelly, did you vote in the leadership race? Honesty and promising to abolish the carbon tax (Among other promises we now can’t trust him to fulfill) is what got Scheer in. Supporting the Paris Accord means supporting the carbon tax. We were deceived. He is not a conservative.

Right on Holly, I emailed my MP today & expressed my sentiments on how the CPC is looking more like the Liberal party these days.

It seems to me that The Rebel spent a lot of time and space covering the Conservative leadership race as though the result mattered. To attack the winner of the vote so soon afterwards seems a bit self-defeating.

If people would only reflect on it for a moment, Scheer and his fellow Conservative MP’s would have looked ridiculous voting against the motion to support the Paris Accord. There are precisely three countries in the world who are on record as opposing the accord: Syria, Nicaragua, and the United States. Within days of Trump’s announcement several U.S. Governors made it clear that they supported the accord, and the Governor of California even met with the President of China to affirm his support.

Andrew Scheer is smart enough not to make his party appear like some extremist group who cannot work with world leaders. Pragmatism is one of the qualities that got him elected.

They’re really milking this story. 10 days and the party’s over.

Looks like Sheer is on the globalist pay roll – so where from here – tax revolt?
commented 2017-06-08 20:57:48 -0400
I was so hopeful for Scheer. Maybe there needs to be a Rebel Party of Canada? There isn’t much left to conserve, anyway.

Don’t worry, the MSM now loves Scheer. He’ll get all kinds of unbiased coverage and be treated with kid gloves by the MSM next election. Honest. All we Conservatives have to do is swallow the entire progressive mantra and we’ll be invited in with open, inclusive, loving arms. I love watching Sesame Street.
commented 2017-06-08 19:22:41 -0400
Meanwhile, I’ve heard nothing about Scheer’s traitorous actions from any CPC MPs. No apologies. No explanations.
This whole uproar is ignored by the MSM, of course. If MSM doesn’t put out a story that Scheer’s decision was contentious, many CPC members won’t clue in to being “stabbed in the back”.
Scheer is saying, “Shhhh. We’ll all just pretend like this revolt never happened and it will go away, and everything will be fine, hehe”.

Andrew Scheer, in his campaign for the leadership railed against those who would want to turn the Conservative Party of Canada into ‘Liberal Lite’ and claimed to have the special capacity to unite the MPs. Well he succeeded in uniting his caucus. In short order, he has united Conservative caucus as the ‘Liberal Lite’ Party. Some unifier.

Holly Nicholas, you nailed it!
Sign the petition, but, please e-mail Cheryl Gallant to applaud her for voting NO; sticking with her principles and voting how her constituents would demand.
