It’s almost as if they aren’t sincere…
For months, the Trudeau Liberals have been attacking Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer for not having a climate plan.
The attacks haven’t really worked, since Scheer is rated as more trusted on the environment than Trudeau according to the latest polls.
Still, the attacks continued.
Then, Scheer announced that his climate plan would be released on June 19th.
You would think that the Liberals would at least offer some grudging praise for Scheer, since he’s now deprived them of their ‘no climate plan’ talking point.
Instead, the Liberals are foolishly attacking his plan – before it’s even been released.
In an op-ed, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna slammed the upcoming plan, despite – and this can’t be said enough – having no idea what will be in it.
Here’s part of what she wrote:
“We can hope for the best from the upcoming Conservative climate policy reveal. But we should all prepare for the worst. This is a political party that has lost its way – and it’s Canadians who stand to lose the most.
While the rest of the world is taking more action to battle this climate crisis, Canada’s Conservatives want to go in exactly the opposite direction.
The finest business minds in the world believe cutting carbon pollution is both necessary and possible to prevent profound harm to our economy and to our wellbeing. Major companies – from Coca Cola, to Ford, Apple, Maersk, and Shell – are re-imagining their business models. And the creativity and ambition we see from small businesses working to improve their environmental performance and adopt more sustainable solutions is beyond inspiring. Governments at all levels should encourage these entrepreneurial instincts – and watch the good things that will happen.
Yet Canada’s Conservatives seem dead-set in the belief that fighting climate change is bad for business. Does Andrew Scheer really know better than these leading global companies?”
Amazing, it seems that in addition to controlling the weather, Catherine McKenna can also see the future.
There’s a few interesting things here.
First of all, McKenna has no idea what direction the Conservatives are going because she has no idea what’s in their upcoming plan.
Second, why is she quoting foreign multinational corporations? Does she really think those companies know more about Canada than Canada’s largest opposition party? If so, that is absurd.
And third, the Liberals keep pushing their ‘carbon tax’ as an environmental plan, despite the plan being ripped to shreds by its own contradictions. For example, the PBO says it’s not even close to being big enough to meet the Paris Accord targets. Plus, the Liberals now claim they’ll freeze it in 2022, despite having previously said it needs to keep rising to meet emissions targets.
So, the Carbon Tax isn’t enough to meet the targets the Liberals claim to support, but it’s still large enough to damage the economy, hurt Canadians, and make life less affordable.
How can the Liberals claim the tax is an environmental plan if it doesn’t even meet their environmental goals?
The reality is that it’s a tax plan, meaning the Liberals also don’t have an environmental plan – the exact thing they accuse the Conservatives of.
As a result, all the Liberals can do is attack others, making fools of themselves in the process by attacking a Conservative plan they haven’t even seen.
