If B.C. Gets To Reject A Pipeline, Then Everyone Else Gets To Reject The Carbon Tax

Trudeau can’t have it both ways.

Every time a province tried to oppose the carbon tax, the Trudeau government arrogantly thundered about their power and authority to impose the tax.

They invoked every law, made every threat (even threatening to withhold funding from some provinces) and said it would all be taken to court.

And so, the carbon tax is being forced on unwilling provinces – even under dubious legal circumstances.

Yet, when it comes to the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, the Trudeau government has been far more meek, and far less willing to assert their authority.

Where are the funding cut threats?

Where is the tough imposition of federal law?

Where is the willingness to assert authority?

It’s all missing, as the Trudeau government just pathetically goes through the motions. Their passion and energy (however terribly misguided) was clearly behind forcing the carbon tax. But there’s no passion from the government when it comes to defending the Trans Mountain pipeline.

This is leading to a very dangerous double standard:

If B.C. is allowed to say no to a pipeline, then why the hell can’t other provinces say no to a carbon tax?

If Trudeau can’t get the pipeline expansion through, then it’s a total joke that he still thinks he can impose the carbon tax on everyone else.

Of course, the truth is that Trudeau loves the carbon tax, while opposing pipelines on an ideological level. Remember, he’s the guy who said the oil sands needed to be “phased out,” and that demonstrated his real thoughts about it.

It seems that Trudeau wants the pipeline blocked, while also wanting to force the carbon tax on everyone. But that’s a tough sell politically, so even though he’s getting his way, he has to pretend he’s not happy about it.

Even so, the immense hypocrisy of forcing a carbon tax on the country while failing to get the Trans Mountain expansion approved will wake up even more Canadians to how broken and dishonest the system has become.

After all, if B.C. gets to reject a pipeline, then everyone else should get to reject the carbon tax.

Spencer, seriously, on the flip side if Trudeau, for example, forced BC to go along with the pipeline then the provinces should willingly and happily pay a tax to control the weather?

Isn’t this where a lot of his money came from, all the Zoros/UN/Clinton Foundation, globalists backed environment groups, no borders, no country, get rid of the early white settlers.
It is his agenda, become communist and poor, except of course the rich that we will slave for to eat. He is collapsing the country as fast as he can, the traitor to Canada, he has to work faster as some of his brainwashed people are catching on, finally.

This is the absolute stupidest “government” that Canada has EVER had … and with braindead Trudoh at the helm, it will only get better come the next election … assuming that a large percentage of Liberal voters are also shaking their heads.

Before anything is rammed through Parliament, the political system we have had to date would require a positive response from those who pay for whatever it is and those who will be directly affected — not, not a massive referendum (although that has merit) but a ‘reasoned’ discussion based on a clear understanding of both the immediate and long-term effects of the proposal. But, as with daddy, that thought cannot be allow to enter his consciousness — because HE is all knowing, just as have been every dictator throughout history.

If the Lower Mainland ‘s Eco-Terrorists can Block and Stop Oil going to tidewater, preventing Albertans to work and feed their families. What is going to stop all the unemployed Albertans from Blocking and Stopping the freight going East, by rail or truck? Sure seems like the same tactics to get Albertans way, as the Eco-Terrorists use to get their way. “But blocking Truck and Train traffic is Illegal,” BC Dippers say! So is blocking the twinning of Keystone, and as soon as they pass this pipeline as a National interest it is game over for these Hippocrates in the… Read more »

The Carbon Tax violates two sections of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Some Provinces entered into agreements to avoid a battle, while others entered into an agreement to “buy social licence” … they’ve all been screwed over.
