On the surface, the concept of a carbon tax and carbon credits is stupid. Dig deeper and it is more than stupid; it is criminally stupid. One might argue that the intent is to raise the price of fuel to the point that people might take it upon themselves to alter their energy use habits. However, when the infrastructure of the entire nation is predicated on the availability and use of fossil fuels, the only result is the runaway inflation we are seeing. The thing is, the current system of supply and transportation has been built up over the last 75 years. At fifty years ago, it was already apparent that the model was not sustainable, but no one wanted to hear it. When asked about their plan to deal with climate change, the Conservatives need to first state that climate change, influenced by man or not, needs to be met with real world plans to minimize any negative effects on our country. They then need to state, what will not help are band-aid solution which exacerbate any negative impacts. They need to point out that the Liberal "plan" to combat climate change is not only ineffective but detrimental to the welfare of the citizens of the country. Never mind the catchy phrases and cheap politicking, we can handle some substance and we deserve it. GD

Steven G just keeps digging the Liberal hole deeper every time he opens his mouth on the carbon tax

Paul;
Good morning my friend, I hope you all had a great Easter weekend other than the gas prices etc.

Not that it makes you feel any better, but the fuel companies did that here too.

We're at $1.72.9/liter here in beautiful downtown OK Falls, but I see our daughter gets gouged anywhere from $2.01.9 to $2.05.9 at the coast.

Wonderful stuff really isn't it?

Also read through the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses this little report.

"Though the government promised to return 9% of revenues to small businesses through grants and rebates, less than 1% has actually been returned. The tax has undoubtedly contributed to the rising cost of doing business in Canada, and at great expense to small business owners."

It remains a mystery to me that so many in the legacy media remain incapable of connecting the dots where higher fuel costs necessarily result in higher transportation costs which in turn always have and always will mean we pay more as consumers.

Thought we'd kinda sorta covered that by say Grade 5.....

Dunno Paul, maybe new math is a real thing?

Hope not.

Best to you all regardless.

Dwayne

And mashed them all together?

It wouldn't even make an Idiot.

Because I live close, I fill up south of the border. I buy off-road diesel down there as well. If I get a rebate check, I will sign it over to Poillievre, with instructions that it is to be applied to the national debt when he gets elected. GD
