Thousands of Albertans are losing their jobs and their homes and all the provincial government can think of doing is to slap us with another tax. Dimwits.
The carbon tax idea was dreamed up by Trudeau Sr. in 1980. It brought Alberta to its knees and the rest of the country as well because the oil and gas industry buys billions of dollars worth of material from other provinces.
Of course, Quebec was barely affected, Trudeau Sr. made sure of that. Even Stephen Harper said that a carbon tax is nothing more than a tax grab and does nothing for the environment.
The new “Prince of Ottawa” is a joke among the other world leaders but he’s going to tell them how to manage their gas emissions. Double dimwit. It’s like a city boy with one year in agricultural school telling veteran farmers how to farm.
Looking at the provincial and federal governments, a movie comes to mind: Dumb and Dumber.
