ANOTHER LOSS FOR TRUDEAU: Manitoba Rejects “Dangerous” & “Risky” Carbon Tax, Slams Threats From Federal Government

“We are standing up for Manitobans, by saying ‘yes’ to Manitoba’s green plan, and ‘no’ to a carbon tax,” said Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister.

Justin Trudeau has suffered another big loss.

Manitoba, the home of yours truly and one of the few provinces that was still supporting the carbon tax, is now strongly rejecting the carbon tax.

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister said “Today, I stood up for Manitoba to ensure our Made-In-Manitoba Green Plan receives the respect it deserves from Ottawa. Here is a message to my fellow Manitobans on WHY we say YES to #GREEN without a carbon tax.”

Former Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall welcomed Manitoba to the anti-carbon tax coalition:

“Welcome, Manitoba to full opposition to a federally-imposed carbon tax that focuses on less than 2% of global emissions while risking foundational trade-exposed jobs all across Canada.”

The move by Manitoba is a massive loss for Trudeau, who had regularly touted Manitoba as the only province led by a Conservative that was willing to support the carbon tax.

But even that wasn’t enough for Trudeau, as he and McKenna said Manitoba’s plan didn’t take enough money out of the pockets of taxpayers, and then threatened to cut federal funds to Manitoba and threatened to impose the federal carbon tax over Manitoba’s objections.

Pallister’s previous support of a carbon tax was widely unpopular with the Conservative base in Manitoba, but now that over half of Canada’s population is represented by provincial leaders who oppose the federal carbon tax, Pallister has brought Manitoba into the ascendant anti-carbon tax coalition.

We are now clearly seeing that Justin Trudeau’s dictatorial imposition of the federal carbon tax is creating enemies across the country, and waking people up to how little respect Trudeau has for taxpayers and other leaders in Canada.

The anti-carbon tax movement continues gaining strength.

Yeah for Manitoba, good going, we need the dictator type governments gone all across Canada, then federally, these wasteful money grabs must end we must elect people who respect and care about the country to get Canada back to safety and debt freedom.

Good that he’s against the carbon tax. Starting to behave a bit like a conservative. However, “Today, I stood up for Manitoba to ensure our Made-In-Manitoba Green Plan receives the respect it deserves from Ottawa. Here is a message to my fellow Manitobans on WHY we say YES to #GREEN without a carbon tax”, what a loser with his virtue signalling Green Plan.

I don’t care what other people say about Pallister, I still think he is the right choice for premier and he has made the right decision — now Trudeau can grovel!!!

It never should have been to start with. Pallister cancels the carbon tax but will give 85 million dollars re the stadium. That’s our money being wasted on a college type warm weather stadium forced on us by the Aspers and NDP. Send Asper the bill. Just a sneaky trick by Pallister to take our minds off all the hospital emergency closures etc. and to get re-elected.
