As you know, I believe that some of the most powerful Cons in the country, the ones I call the Carbon Gang, have made a fatal mistake.
They have all vowed to destroy Justin Trudeau's federal carbon tax at a time when scientists are warning the planet is burning.
And carbon taxes are the best way to save it.
But unfortunately many Canadians don't understand how a carbon tax works.

Now I find it hard to believe that so many Canadians could be so dumb, and I suggest that many of them are just greedy.

Now Mr. Trudeau’s government has an opportunity to turn those tactics on conservative politicians in provincial capitals that are challenging their carbon tax – by using carbon-tax revenue to dole out cash directly to families.
An analysis commissioned by Canadians for Clean Prosperity, a pro-carbon-tax organization, concluded that would amount to about $350 for every Ontario household next year, rising to $836 in 2022. In Saskatchewan, it would be $1,075 in 2019, rising to $2,394 in 2022.
Power his way to another massive election victory...
And leave people like Doug Ford bubbling and squeaking in his own grease...
