Stupid carbon tax

I watched an episode of the Science of Stupid and it inspired me to write.

I watched an episode of The Science of Stupid and it inspired me to write.

The latest figures show that Canada produces 1.7 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions. Reductions from our carbon tax will have no effect at all on the world scene, but, it will increase the cost of living — the cost of gasoline, for example. This hurts the lowest income earners.

We are told this tax is revenue neutral, the income will be used to reduce taxes in other areas. This could be credible if it was applied to Medicare premiums. This would actually help those who need help the most.

The same people who have imposed a carbon tax, also made the rule that we need snow tires as of October 1. This is too absurd to warrant a comment.

There was a time when politicians tried to make life better for the needy of our society. Is there a young Bernie Saunders out there?
