Doug Ford and the Billion Dollar Carbon Tax Boondoggle
Earlier today I wrote about the way Canadians could punish the members of the Carbon Gang for waging war on the federal carbon tax.
Even though scientists believe that they are the best way to fight climate change, and green our economy.
Well now it appears that one of the Carbon Gang members, Doug Ford, has just shot himself in the foot.
And inflicted a three billion dollar penalty on his own province.
By scrapping its cap-and-trade system.
Ontario’s financial watchdog says the Progressive Conservative provincial government’s decision to cancel the cap-and-trade system will lead to a loss of $3-billion in revenue over the next four years.
And Ford's "Environment Minister" says that's OK, he's not worried.
Ontario Environment Minister Rod Phillips said Tuesday the cap-and-trade program was “not effective” and the government would rather see money in families’ pockets. “This was a tax that was bad for Ontarians,” he said, “$3-billion less for the government means $3-billion more for families.”
Because for him like all the other Cons, saving money, by losing it, is more important than saving the planet...
And even though the Liberals are preparing to take steps to try to save the planet AND put money in the pockets of Canadians.
Ottawa has pledged to impose a carbon tax on provinces, beginning next year, if they do not come up with their own pricing scheme for reducing emissions.
Something that Ontario's "Environment Minister" is having a hard time understanding or believing.
Mr. Phillips said it’s still unclear how the federal government will apply the revenue from its proposed carbon tax. “When a government says that a tax is going to put more money in your pockets, most of us are skeptical about that,” he said.
Just like his boss Ontario's "Premier" Doug Ford.
The dumb political ape who would bribe his idiot Ford Nation with his buck-a-beer...
Even as climate change causes a global beer shortage.
Global warming will lead to substantial decreases in barley crop yields, causing beer shortages and a sharp rise in the price of a pint, according to a study published Monday in the journal Nature Plants.
Well played Dougie!! Well played suckers!!
And the good news?
Who do you think is going to be the big winner of this Planet of the Apes show in Ontario?
Yup, Justin Trudeau...
Who I predict will sweep Ontario in the next election, on his way to his biggest majority ever.
And who should get the lion's share, or the ape's share of the credit?
Well Dougie of course.
So make sure you let him know how grateful you are...
And then work as hard as you can to defeat this monstrous Con...
Before he destroys Ontario and Canada.
And helps torch the planet...

"3 billion less for the government is 3 billion more for taxpsyers"???!!
Hey guys, the government is ultimately funded by the taxpayers. It's either higher taxes or reduced services - services that are already reduced to the bone.
The Ford Monster Truck is also in trouble with Tesla Motors for cancellation of the electric vehicle rebate program. Elon Musk might be an obnoxious jerk whose erratic behavior got him the Steve Jobs treatment by his own company, but at least his head was in the right place at one point in time.
Not so with Pinto Ford. For a con artist who claimed to be "Ford duh people," he sure knows how to soak them at the pump and destroy the biosphere at the same time. Have You Driven a Ford Torontosaurus Wreck Lately?™
The following article sums up Dougies accounting expertise. His motto is "its a saving when I say it is regardless of whether it falls on the debit or credit side of the ledger, if its an expense it must be Wynne's or Trudeau's fault".
dougie just doesn't seem to understand that even if that $3B is in the pockets of families, those families are still going to need roads, hospitals, doctors, paramedics, fire fighters, bridges, police officers, etc. How does dougie plan to pay for all of that. Does he expect the provincial government workers to start working for free? If he does, he is spending too much time drinking $1 beer.
When a government defunds itself the next thing they do is reduce services, so those in Ontario who think they will benefit from having $3B spilt amongst a population of 13.6 Million, not so much folks. It might be better if the government kept the $3B and spent it on say perhaps a new hospital in the north, a few more schools, etc. Now that is a benefit every one can benefit from. oh, well the people of Ontario voted for dougie and they will have to learn to live with it or die because of it.
there are 5200 patents that are being held up state side by oligard criminals.. that would better human kind... like free energy cars etc.(Tesla drove one in 1932, Morgan, his financial backer didn't' LIKE IT , HE WAS IN THE OILY BUSINESS).. 5 will get you 10 that this tax is going back to these scum in the form of tax breaks and jobs for the politicians who help them when they leave politics...
Hi UU...yes, the Ford Cons are showing themselves to be as ideological and even dumber than the Scheer Cons, if that's possible. Their war on taxes is really a war on government, and the way the environment is simply ignored is criminal and unforgivable...
Hi Jackie...The Ford regime's assault on the environment is so brutish it's almost beyond belief. The disgusting Harperite cult that is running Ford's incompetent government is trying to get back at Justin Trudeau for evicting them from power. As far as I'm concerned they are the worst and most criminal government in Canadian history. And the damage those apes are doing to this province will take a generation to repair. The morons who voted for them should hang their heads in shame...
Hi RT...I think you summed up the situation brilliantly. I thought Harper and Scheer were the worst Cons I had ever seen, but Ford is shaping up to be the King Kong of them all. I already despise him, I can't even stand the sound of his voice. How such a brutish beast was ever elected in a country like this one will haunt me until the day I die. But I will live for the joy of seeing him defeated. King Kong will go down just like the one in the movies...
Hi e.a.f...The Cons are not just criminal planet burners, their war on taxes is aimed at shrinking government until they can drown it in a bath tub. This country has cut taxes so much we are starting to look like a third-world nation. Everything is old and rundown. Greed is killing us, and if we don't fight back and hard, we will lose one government service after the other including Medicare. But yes the morons in Ontario who voted for Ape Ford are in for a rude awakening...
