Trudeau’s Carbon Tax 100% Discredited After Trans Mountain ‘Suspension’

The deal promised by Trudeau was for provinces to support the carbon tax in return for getting more pipelines done. That was a lie.

With opposition to the carbon tax surging across our nation, the announcement by Kinder Morgan that they are suspending ‘non-essential’ work on the Trans Mountain pipeline has destroyed any shred of credibility the carbon tax may have had left.

As they pushed the tax on provincial leaders, the Trudeau government said that going along with the tax would mean pipeline approvals, ‘social license’, and smooth sailing for future projects.

That was a lie.

Instead, we are left with the carbon tax, and pipelines are still being blocked.

It’s the old bait-and-switch, and the Trudeau carbon tax is now 100% discredited.

While it had no real credibility left among common-sense people, the inability of the Trudeau government to deal with the radical left B.C. NDPs anti-Canadian energy agenda totally reveals the emptiness and dishonesty of the messaging used to sell the carbon tax in the first place.

After all, if the carbon tax had lived up to its billing, then there would be no opposition from B.C. to deal with in the first place.

Additionally, the Trudeau government had no problem forcing the carbon tax on unwilling provinces, but are taking a hands-off approach as the Trans Mountain pipeline is delayed to death – showing their true ideological allegiances and priorities.

The carbon tax was a fraud from the very beginning, and that’s something that nobody can now deny.

“The carbon tax was a fraud from the very beginning…….” — and so was Trudeau.

Jr doesn’t give a rat’s a**. He has made his string pullers happy. Now, how many Inca costumes for the Inca trip is a serious concern.

B.C.’s Premier gives the middle finger to the rest of Canada and Trudeau does nothing. Trudeau has let down the country. ‘The Federal gov’t has failed to regulate the economy of Canada in the national interest.’ John Ivison

I don’t recall such rhetoric about social license from Trudeau but certainly from Rachel Notley. Even if it were true, it is tantamount to blackmail. Yes, the carbon tax was a fraud from the beginning but an even greater fraud is the notion of man-made climate change which has been the driver of such nonsense as paying a tax will change the weather.

Well obviously paying a carbon tax will help stop the dreaded ‘global warming’ We pay it here in BC and we are having a hell of a cold spring.

Horgan recently increased the carbon tax in BC but was very clear in stating that the increased income had absolutely nothing to do with carbon or the environment, that it was simply another tax and would be dumped in with general revenues. I wonder how high taxes are going to go when Albeeta shuts down transporting gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and heating oil in the existing KM line? Gas stations will run out of gas in about two weeks. Can Trudeau and Horgan spell anarchy?

Horgan & Trudeau – hypocritical lying pieces of excrement controlled by Weaver.

He’s just like Obama … full of lies and deception with no intent of EVER approving a pipeline.

And now the players are starting to sell off the real estate in BC and Alberta, so where would any pipeline even go — there won’t be a place to put it.

I know where it SHOULD go … !!

The “Carbon Tax” is just another revenue stream for the Loony Left Lieberals to waste more money on their pet projects.

Trudeau and the Lieberal Party have failed Canada again and it’s no surprise. Why do Canadians continue to vote these clowns into office?!?!?!?!

While Quebec stopped the energy east pipeline, Ontario had closed it’s refineries years ago, now BC stops KML and our safest most environment friendly way to transport our largest cash maker if it gets to market.
What is wrong with this country?

Trudeau has proven his ability to lie to just about everyone, possibly even his wife and kids. So with the cancellation by Kinder Morgan for the funding of the Trans Mountain Pipeline, this completes exactly what he has dreamed about ever since his father failed to nationalize our oil industry and redistribute the wealth of Alberta and Saskatchewan with the National Energy Plan. His betrayal of Canadians and our oil industry by being very deceitful , arrogant and duplicitous by using a fraudulent carbon tax to accomplish what his father tried by imposing a export fee for the transportation of… Read more »

No fan of Trudeau or Notley but lets remember Trudeau did approve the pipeline although he has been way too soft on Horgan, but it is possible he might have blocked it outright if Alberta didn’t agree to the carbon tax. Also at that time, Christy Clark was premier of BC and the BC Liberals were for the Kinder Morgan pipeline provided it met the five conditions which they were on track to meet. Had the BC Conservatives not run candidates in either Courtnay-Comox or Maple Ridge-Mission or the BC Liberals gotten just 15o more votes in Courtnay-Comox, we would… Read more »

It makes me wonder how much has been siphoned off by the Liberals and used to support anti-pipeline groups.
