Trudeau, and his Liberal government are NOT 'pricing pollution', they are forcing Canadians to pay a TAX for the just about everything we need to live, and die for that matter!


Yesterday, when Conservative Party leader Andrew Sheer stated that, “Justin Trudeau’s Carbon tax does NOTHING to actually help the environment” ... there was a fairly quick response from Gerald Butts, a senior political adviser and political secretary to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

He tweeted that ... "It’s important to respond that most of the country’s (and the world’s) economists and scientists say precisely the opposite. Pricing pollution is an essential part of any serious #ClimateChange plan."

I have news for you Butts ... your federal masters (paying you a salary far higher I am sure than most Canadians) are NOT in fact pricing pollution!

You are instead hitting Canadians with a TAX on the fuel we need to get to our jobs ... you are hitting us with a TAX on tools carpenters, mechanics, and the like need for their jobs ... its a TAX we pay for increased costs on the homes we buy, and the fuel to heat them ... its an added TAX that gets passed on to us from businesses getting their products to market -- and that INCLUDES the food we eat, and the clothes and footwear we purchase for our children.

In actual fact Butts ... it’s a TAX passed on by your boss Justin Trudeau – an individual who has NEVER in his life every had to working about budgeting for himself, or his family.

What’s the bottom line in this whole commentary, that infuriated me when I saw it?

“First Past The Post” works close to home by focusing on electoral districts first … “Proportional Representation” tries to fit a size 10 foot into a size 7 shoe by bastardizing electoral districts

MEL ROTHENBERGER: There are so many things wrong with the referendum on proportional representation, it would take as long to cover it all as it would to explain the convoluted and foggy alternatives on the ballot.

So let’s just talk about the hocus pocus of proportional representation (also known as prop rep, pro rep or PR) math. This one giant flaw should be enough to make us run, not walk, away from prop rep.

Throughout the months leading up to this vote, prop rep boosters have relied heavily on a simplistic abracadabra formula to convince us their system makes sense.

Their favourite line is “40 per cent of the votes should equal 40 per cent of the seats,” or variations thereof.

With the current First Past the Post, they say, “39 per cent of the votes = 54 per cent of the seats = 100 per cent of the power” but with PR “39 per cent of the vote = 39 per cent of the seats = Compromise, cooperation, collaboration.” This is labeled “Proportional Representation Math.”

I once called it “voodoo…

What, Judy, is the response, to the urgency and compassion show by British Columbians for WHAT IS NEEDED? What are the ‘action words?’

Today is International Overdose Awareness Day.  Did you know such a day existed?
I wasn’t until early this morning.My God, it’s pathetic we even need to have a day like this to mark – and celebrate is obviously a word that would never be used for an occasion like this!
So, for an occasion such as this, Judy Darcy, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, trotted out ‘words’, because, at least in my opinion, they are easy to say.
Today marks International Overdose Awareness Day, and we honour and remember those we have lost to this terrible crisis. Last year, we lost 1,450 people here in B.C., and by the end of this day three or four more British Columbians will die from a drug overdose as a result of a poisoned and unpredictable illegal drug supply.”

All talk … but little action!
As I mentioned yesterday, on July 18th, the BC Centre On Substance Use, released all of the ‘words’ necessary for our BC NDP government to ‘actually’ begin the process to slow down this terrible crisis, and hel…
