When Catherine McKenna Says “Climate Action” She’s Really Talking About Huge Tax Increases

In Canada, taxes are up while emissions are up. In the US, taxes and emissions are both going down.

As I reported earlier, Canada’s emissions surged by nearly 20 million tons in 2017. While that’s not a bad thing (considering Canada is a cold weather country and heating is expensive for a growing population) it is a total rebuke to the Trudeau government’s virtue-signalling since they claimed the opposite was supposed to happen.

Even more ironic, is that in the United States (which the left loves to condemn as some reincarnation of the soot-filled skies of the industrial revolution), emissions are down.

So, the US cut taxes and encouraged innovation, and emissions there went down, while the Trudeau government massively expanded job killing regulations and forced the carbon tax on us, and emissions went up.

It’s a pathetic indictment of Trudeau’s ‘environmental’ policies, and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t so damaging to Canada.

Yet, the Trudeau government shows no sign of reversing course, and they’re still using the same deceptive weasel-words to hide their true agenda (concentrating our tax dollars in the hands of the elites and taking away our economic freedom).

Just take a look at Catherine McKenna’s latest attack on leaders who actually listen to their constituents and are opposing the carbon tax:

“Unfortunately in Canada too many Conservative politicians don’t support climate action.

They don’t understand the very real economic & human cost of inaction and the trillion dollar growth & job opportunity.

And what about leaving a sustainable planet for our kids & grandkids?”

Conservative MP Erin O’Toole pushed back perfectly, revealing what’s really going on:

“By “climate action” she means raising taxes. That is the Liberal go-to move.”

We’ve now seen the facts. We know the carbon tax is all about taking away our money, not doing anything for the environment. “Climate Action” means higher taxes, enriching the political elites at our expense. It’s time to call out this deception every time the Liberals try pushing it, and make clear that their lies won’t go unanswered.

  1. When I read that 30 year of pollution in Canada equals 1 week of pollution in China. I really dont understand why they dont leave us alone with this crap. They should get their friend the UN to put pressure on China about climate change instead of accusing Israel, the good of fabricated sins.

  2. Trillion dollar growth and job opportunity? The only thing that “Grows’ is government coffers with their carbon taxes. And those taxes disproportionately hurt lower and middle income people.

    And we are still being gouged in Victoria, gas is about 1.51 a litre here.

  3. When one uses the term sustainability it outs them as a proponent of UN Agenda 2021/2031. Sustainability is their code word. If you do not fear this agenda then you have no regard, period, as this agenda is a lion wearing sheeps clothing. I wonder how many Canadians know the definition of democide. This agenda is all about reserving the planet for the elite, not you. You must remember that disarmament of the populace has always, ALWAYS, led to democide. The UN can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig. Do not be deceived. Climate could be used as a definition for change and the only thing that exceeds mans hubris is the Universe itself.

  4. If McKenna can show me documented proof of a climate tax implemented anywhere in the world that has reduced CO2 in the atmosphere, she should show the documents ASAP or resign her position immediately.

  5. On Feb 13, 2018: The judge dismissed all charges in the lawsuit brought against Dr Tim Ball by BC Green Party leader Andrew Weaver. It is a great victory for free speech.
    ‘The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science’.
    Tim’s website is
    “Human Caused Global Warming”, ‘The Biggest Deception in History’.

  6. For now this Lady is forced by her position(beneath Justin the drama Teacher) to “speak the party line” which is conceived in Justin Trudeau’s mind alone.
    I await her time as party leader. Compare her no bullshit, non-ameliorated C.V. to that of the person in charge at the moment. How could the liberal Front Office make such a tragic error in judgment?

    The following is likely how ignorant Canadians cause a dangerous ‘Brain Drain’ to the USA. Ignorant Disrespect! Please, show this fine, well educated, 21st Century Canadian gem the proper respect.
    “Barbie” implies an American symbolism and before that, a 1930’s ‘Nazi’ standard for women. (You Google before you call names! You See!) Truly, with a C.V. like this, Our Catherine McKenna proves far superior in all ways, even to the US president’s ‘arm-candy’ wife.
    Don’t let this base, crass and derogatory ‘moniker” continue, and Thank God our Canadian Ladies are so far above the ‘arm candy’ we witness in the USA. (due to good education, equal opportunity, good healthcare, good Canadian communities, and good neighborhoods) Canada is truly a land of opportunity for all women and this one proves that point! She really doesn’t need a backwards hillbilly Americanized “nickname”. Her name is Catherine McKenna, easy to spell, easy to remember and certainly worthy of Canadian pride and respect. She is Our ‘product’! Keep that in mind . . .
    Why the Liberal Party of Canada chose to “Glass Ceiling” this wonderful lady is beyond me.
    Here she is talking to the best and the brightest from around the world:

    1. With a little training in physics instead of social justice maybe she would understand that it is the Sun that drives our climate. Maybe a natural organism that converts carbon dioxide to oxygen would help here. Charging a carbon tax and pocketing the gains instead of planting a tree shows the hypocrisy that is social justice. But the real danger is an environment minister that promotes a carbon tax while ignoring the Fukushima sizzle. Her risk assessments are in question. There are her predictions and then there are for sure predictions. We need a government imbued with reality not with greed. I have often wondered what job requires gender studies as a prerequisite. Thank you for clearing that up.

  7. The Trudeau Liberals still haven’t learned the lessons of history, that those who fail to learn from them are doomed to repeat the same mistakes. They just have to look at what happened here in Ontario, under the disastrous leadership of Queen Kathleen, who tried to over tax and over spend , all in the name of protecting the environment.

    We wound up with the world’s largest sub-sovereign debt load , a destroyed economy and electricity that no one can afford, along with not changing the environment one bit. Yet, Trudeau and his minions think that somehow if they just keep doing the same things as were done in Ontario , they will get a different result.

    The only result Trudeau will get is what happened to the Ontario Liberals, booted from office and reduced to rump of a party. Along with again having been proven to be the same old corrupt Liberals they have always been. And the environment will continue to do whatever it wants, simply because no one can ever control or influence it, no matter how much you tax the citizens.

  8. Back to Mr. Harper, he warned us this would happen, so here we are just figuring it out again, it is for the one world order, the greedy rich utopia for them, not us, and once we have nothing left to support their way of high rolling, we will no longer be needed, like Venezuela, and many other places over time, Russia, China – these countries are still climbing out of socialism as Putin put it.
    Putin said Russia is becoming democratic, but millions dyed in the old days with socialism, it will take more many years to fix Russia, but now we are watching the European Union going socialist or communist, just like the Soviet Union did many years ago, and we know like Russia they too will collapse some years from now, but he could not believe Germany would be this stupid so soon again. (it always starts out good then collapses, throughout history)
    The greedy rich, want power,they make your laws, they will share some of YOUR tax money back to you and borrow more to do it, till OUR debt is too big, all the jobs are lost, and you are no good to them any longer, you are no longer able to support their very free rich life style, so not needed any longer, blame us for being lazy and stupid (we are falling for this over and over, pot anyone, phony climate agendas to take your money, give it to them, they can spend it flying around the world to fancy places and have a meeting to make it look like something is being done , pat each other on the back, look important for photo ops etc. all on our dime, and not a thing accomplished except more pollution and more rhetoric to help them stay in power to take our money.
    My home heating bill almost tripled this past winter, and I kept my small house at 60 degrees F (0r 15.5 C) or lower, and used candles in clay pots layered to he warm enough ( I am old) but that is just too expensive to have a small carbon foot print. While highly polluting government subsidized jets are flying constantly around the world as the rich get richer. I was lucky, I was educated and had good steady work my whole working life. but life for the younger people is no longer stable unless you are really lucky.
    Independent thinkers and workers are happier usually and vote Conservative, while needy helpless people who feel someone else should do for them and are easily lead, vote socialist Lieberal/NDP and are very often unhappy radicals. This was the result of an American University study on depression.

  9. I don’t mind being taxed IF I’m given some way of reducing my tax OR if I know that its actually doing something. I’ve never seen a govt yet in my 30yrs of being aware of govt, ie since I had to start paying taxes, where govt wasted A LOT of money.

    Give me a way to reduce the amount of gas I use OTHER THAN the lame option of not driving or having to purchase and electric car. How about something like Gadgetman Groove which might take my 20mpg/10L/100km car to 40mpg and 5L/100km?! How about the car manufacturers produce a car that gets over 50mpg! 100yrs of making cars, space age tech and computer systems where a car can park and drive itself, and they can’t get over 30mpg. BUT I had a 87 Jetta that got 45mpg easy. What happened to those cars?? When did the oil shortage disappear and big gas guzzlers come back?

    McKenna isn’t fooling anyone except the gullible and young, those that don’t remember the 70-80s when cars got smaller and fuel economy went way up. And the catalyst for that change was a fake oil shortage so oil companies could reformulate gas and invent the fuel injection to prevent people like Ogle from modifying carburators to get 0ver 100mpg on big 2 ton cars.

    1. Exactly Ron, imagine this. It is early morning, 30 below zero, just had a 35 cm snowfall overnight. You look to your driveway and see your 4X4 diesel parked beside your wifes Tesla 3. Which one are you going to brush the snow off of? Before the carbon tax the decision was a simple one. But now somehow the snowmobile has entered the equation. And of course there is still the option of the “Bennett Buggy”. But with these policies we had best not forget snow shoes when making this decision. It is called progress Ron. Not to be confused with reality. We must progress and any uncomfortable truths be damned. The story of Bob Fish Sr and his carburetor also tells the tale.
