  1. And the PBO claims it needs to be $102/ton meet the targets. “A total carbon price of $102 per tonne — which includes the government's carbon price and this new, PBO-suggested levy — would result in an additional hike to gas prices of as much as $0.23 per litre by 2030.” https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/carbon-tax-50-tonne-emissions-1.5173609
  2. Careful....unless the straws and bags are made from recycled plastic or paper, it will mean more trees will be cut down.
  3. Hopefully, current lib MPs won’t be around to take advantage of it!
  4. Deicer, don’t say this often, but I agree 100%..... maybe Trudeau and climate Barbie could get around to tweeting Brazil and Malaysia about the eco effects of deforestation instead of lecturing the elites at Davos.
  5. How many Canadians are saying the same thing after 3 years of Trudeaus government??
  6. Yup...really in to the “save the environment” thing, putting a price on pollution and all that. https://www.therebel.media/justin-trudeau-single-use-plastic-ban-household-spends-300-dollars-monthly-bottled-water?utm_campaign=rb_11_06_2019&utm_medium=email&utm_source=therebel
  7. Yup, the numbers don’t change...it’s just how they are presented. The author states: “Ford negotiated with Kathleen Wynne’s $6-million man at Hydro One, and quietly worked out a deal to pay Mayo Schmidt a ludicrous $9 million in severance payments to make him go away.” Whereas the CBC reports: “Ford's assertion that Schmidt will receive only $400,000 instead of the $10.7 million guaranteed by his contract ignores the fact that Schmidt will still hang on to his stock options and other incentives granted as part of his executive compensation package. Doug Ford's government strikes deal with Hydro One to force out CEO, board Hydro One shares down after Ontario government says CEO, board out "Mr. Schmidt shall be entitled to receive all remuneration, benefits, awards and other entitlements previously granted, awarded or earned through to the retirement date," reads the agreement which led to the resignation of the entire board of directors and the retirement of Schmidt as CEO. The agreement, signed by former Hydro One chair David Denison and Ontario Energy Minister Greg Rickford, says because Schmidt agreed to retire, he is still entitled to pension benefits and various shares in the publicly-traded utility in addition to the $400,000 lump sum. All told, Schmidt could end up closer to being Hydro One's $10 million man, instead of the $6 million man Ford labelled him as during the campaign.” So in reality, Schmidt is still benefitting from a contract under Wynnes government mandate. It’s the implication the author makes that Ford is doing a secret payoff to get rid of him.
  8. Authored by the NDP finance critic......who da guessed??
  9. Climate Barbie tries to spin the garbage: “Anchors aweigh! The containers of garbage have departed the Philippines and will arrive in Canada in four weeks — where the waste will be turned into energy that'll power homes in British Columbia” Why don’t we do this in the first place??. .... like most of Europe.
  10. Or they could just climb Mt Everest....
  11. This is such an insult...the turd making a show at D-Day commemorations....then turning his back on the military.....they are the only ones he has said “NO” to!!!
  12. Yes, I know it’s Rebel media but the perspective of this al quds day supporter bears listening to: Interesting to note that none of the other participants are denouncing this man’s message, rather, they are advising him to be quiet about the religion. Crickets from other media on the protest.
  13. Glad you agree...we, Ontario, have the largest sub national debt in the world and it’s not going away.
  14. I guess every author has their agenda. A sampling of Mr. Magreals interests: Articles People are Finally Noticing Ontario's Spending Was Not 'Out of Control' - Once a particular narrative takes hold in the public mind, no matter how divorced it is from reality, it can be extremely hard to dislodge. Published May 30, 2019 in Politics The Sky is Not Falling Over Ontario's Debt - When you plot Ontario's debt on an inflation-adjusted, per-capita basis, the picture is not nearly as stark as you might expect. Published May 29, 2019 in Politics Right-Wing Populists are Immune to Hypocrisy - Pointing out the hypocrisy of right-wing populists and their supporters misses the movement's central premise. Published May 23, 2019 in Politics With Climate Action, the Middle Ground Between Success and Failure is Failure - We need a massive, comprehensive, all-hands-on-deck mobilization of our entire country to transition rapidly and decisively to a decarbonized economy if we have any hope of saving the planet for our children and grandchildren. Published May 17, 2019 in Special Report: Climate Change Addressing the Twin Crises of Global Warming and Neoliberalism - A Green New Deal offers a blueprint for a rapid transition to a sustainable economy that brings everyone along, delivering more prosperity to Canadians and guaranteeing that no workers will be left behind in the transition. Published May 10, 2019 in Special Report: Climate Change Speaking Notes from my Magill-Pearl-Kent Greenway Jane's Walk - On Saturday, May 4, I led a Jane's Walk along the proposed route of a new neighbourhood greenway that may be coming to Hamilton next year. Published May 06, 2019 in Special Report: Cycling After 30 Wasted Years, the Climate Emergency Demands Drastic Action - We have known about the climate emergency for the past 30 years and did nothing, cowed by a fossil fuel industry more interested in profit than human survival. Now it's too late to play nice if we want a future for humanity. Published April 24, 2019 in Special Report: Climate Change Right-Wing Politicians Are Encouraging Stochastic Terrorism - Instead of helping to stem the tide of hatred, Canada's Conservative leadership at all levels is actually enabling and pandering to it. Published February 22, 2019 Spending is spending .... per capital doesn’t mean squat if you are still creating deficits. And despite what citizens/lefties think...this is the reality: TORONTO – Bond rating agency Moody’s has downgraded the province of Ontario’s credit rating. The agency announced the downgrade from Aa3 to Aa2 on Thursday, citing the province’s $14.5-billion deficit in 2018-2019 and projections that it will continue to post deficits in the coming years. Moody’s said the combination of increased debt and slow revenue growth will result in a faster than previously anticipated increase of the province’s debt burden. https://globalnews.ca/news/4760740/moodys-ontario-credit-rating/ So more money wasted on interest payments, less on programs......unless we go back to that we’ll worn solution..... “make the rich pay”
  15. After making many promises to the indigenous peoples, Trudeau will find himself coming up short going into the election: From the National Post
  16. POLITICALLY INCORRECT ALERT!!! The truth may get in the way.... And before the rhetoric gets too heated and the turd throws more money at the MMIW commission and the government has to respond to the newly designated “genocide”.... From an RCMP report: http://www.rcmp-grc.gc.ca/en/missing-and-murdered-aboriginal-women-2015-update-national-operational-overview#p4
  17. Trudeau will have the perfect opportunity to show his commitment to eliminating hate and violence by condemning a rally that is planned for Toronto today, even though the city has not given permits for the rally to proceed. https://www.bnaibrith.ca/sheikh_calls_for_eradication_of_israelis_at_toronto_al_quds_day_rally Rather troubling comments in the above link at the 4 minute mark. You would think that this call for violence would be headline news for Canada’s media....not so much. https://torontosun.com/news/local-news/city-hall-turns-a-blind-eye-to-hateful-al-quds-day-rally If the turd and his band of puppets can criticize and call rascist anybody who questions his policy of migrants illegally entering the country or islamophobic anybody who questions Islam, he should be in full bluster mode on Monday. Who am I kidding??? ...... it will be crickets !!!
  18. And the smuggling of guns across the border will continue unabated due to demand from thugs who ignore laws.
  19. Oops..didn’t read all of Jaydee post re deleting CBs tweet.....I got it now.
  20. If the BAC 111 was still flying, they might have something to complain about.
  21. Well, apparently CB had a few too many shots in a bar in St. John’s and let everybody in on her and the Libs little secret. This will be election gold for the cons. Basically affirming what we see in QP.....if you say something loud enough and long enough....people will believe it! Forget if it’s true or not. https://mobile.twitter.com/stephen_taylor/status/1132881898915737602?ref_src=twsrc^tfw|twcamp^tweetembed|twterm^1133049799132028929|twgr^393039363b74776565745f6d65646961&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftorontosun.com%2Fopinion%2Fcolumnists%2Fgoldstein-screeched-in-mckenna-commits-a-classic-political-gaffe
  22. Additional humour......the alleged author is Scott Gilmore (who often writes for McLeans)...husband of Catherine McKenna.
  23. A lot of predictable, overheated rhetoric from labour and the NDP.......when the minimum wage went up here in small town Ontario,the local grocery store laid off all the partime students and gave more hours to the full time staff. So much for helping students.
  24. Your tax $$$$$$ at work in a clear and transparent manner....
