If Trudeau either can’t or won’t say what impact the carbon tax will have, why the hell do Canadians need to pay for it?
Environment Minister Catherine McKenna was recently asked how much the carbon tax will reduce Canada’s greenhouse emissions.
She couldn’t do it.
She dodged the question, and either didn’t have the numbers, or choose not to share them. Either way it’s a total embarrassment for the government, as they can’t even explain the impact of a policy they keep saying is so important.
So, with McKenna failing to answer the question, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer asked Justin Trudeau how much the carbon tax will reduce Canada’s greenhouse emissions.
As you can see below, he couldn’t do it either:
It’s such a simple question, and having those projected numbers should have been a basic part of the process that went into crafting and implementing the policy.
After all, why the hell do Canadians have to pay the economically destructive tax when the government won’t even give us details about it?
This combo of incompetence and dishonesty is outrageous. It seems like a broken record since we keep on saying it, but once again the promise of “openness and accountability” that was a centerpiece of Trudeau’s election campaign has been revealed as a total fraud.
Another fraudulent aspect of all this is the idea that Canada reducing emissions does anything at all. Canada emits a tiny fraction of the world’s emissions, and it’s absorbed by our immense forests anyway. Meanwhile, big emitters like China keep on increasing their emissions, totally overwhelming anything we do in Canada.
And as if that’s not enough, the government is failing to reach their own targets anyway.
So, the fact is that Justin Trudeau is punishing Canadian taxpayers and businesses just so he can virtue-signal on the environment for a worthless policy that does nothing but take money out of our pockets and make life more expensive, all without telling us what impact it will have.
In his arrogance, he expects us to just go along with all this like good ‘subjects,’ but as we can see in the rising tide against the carbon tax, Canadians are running out of patience.
