And the carbon tax won’t do a thing to fix it.
Justin Trudeau and Catherine McKenna want everyone focused on the demonization of Canada’s energy industry. They want to justify their anti-Canadian carbon tax (which they don’t apply to Saudi oil or other foreign oil imports), and they want to stop people from questioning why they’re destroying the Canadian coal industry.
Yet, when it comes to a real problem with pollution under the Trudeau government, things are only getting worse.
According to the CP, “More than one hundred municipal wastewater systems did not report how much raw sewage overflowed from their pipes in 2017 but Environment Canada is only investigating two of them for violating federal regulations.”
And the flow of raw sewage into Canada’s waterways is way up under the Trudeau Liberals:
“Data provided to The Canadian Press recently showed over one trillion litres of raw sewage leaked into Canadian waterways between 2013 and 2017, including 215 billion litres in 2017 alone — a 10 per cent increase over 2013.”
Hilariously, McKenna doesn’t even have a plan to toughen up the reporting:
“Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says the government isn’t specifically looking at ways to improve reporting rates of municipalities but, if there is more to do, the federal government would consider it.”
Think about how absurd this is. Canada’s energy industry is the most environmentally careful in the world, using high ethical standards, strong labour practices, and a commitment to environmental protection. Yet, McKenna targets them anyway, slamming them (and by extension all Canadians), with a massive carbon tax that is economically destructive.
Meanwhile, a gargantuan amount of raw sewage is flowing into our water, and McKenna “isn’t specifically looking at ways” to get the issue solved.
This just goes to show that the Trudeau government doesn’t actually care about dealing with solvable pollution problems, and would rather hit us with a carbon tax so they can virtue-signal about everything they’re ‘doing’ to address ‘climate change.’
It’s pathetic, and it’s yet another reason that Trudeau & McKenna are Climate Clowns.
