Show Notes

Dan McTeague, President of Canadians for Affordable Energy, talks about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s proposed second carbon tax (the so-called Clean Fuel Standard).

Canadians for Affordable Energy calculates the second carbon tax will cost families $440/year, per employed person. That is on top of the current carbon tax, which is 6.7 cents per litre of gas and it’s set to increase to 12 cents by 2022.

#52 Bell Cuts Jobs While Taking Wage Subsidy, National Debt Ballooning, and Trudeau’s Trees Getting Expensive

News at the Top – Bell Cuts Jobs While Taking Wage Subsidy The federal government has been giving wage subsidies to businesses as part of its pandemic response, but some of these companies are taking the cash, increasing dividends, then turning around and firing their employees. Ontario Director Jasmine Moulton and B.C. Director Kris Sims talked about what impact the company’s cuts will have across Canada.   Link: https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/international/9520619/canada-bell-media-layoffs-radio/ Deep Dive – National Debt Ballooning The national debt is rapidly expanding. Our Quebec Director Renaud Brossard and our Federal Director Aaron Wudrick discussed the long-term impacts of that debt, which was recently analyzed by the Fraser Institute.  Link: https://www.fraserinstitute.org/sites/default/files/growing-debt-burden-for-canadians-2021.pdf Waste Watch – Trudeau’s Trees Getting Expensive The Trudeau government promised to spend $3 billion to plant trees. Turns out, that promise was low-balling the cost, and the entire project will go overbudget by nearly another $3 billion. Renaud stays on to talk about the pricy tree project with Alberta Director Franco Terrazano. Link: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/pbo-two-billion-trees-1.5892056 Like this show?

#120 Quebec’s Special Deal on Carbon Tax

There’s a fundamental unfairness about the federal carbon tax: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is requiring taxpayers in other provinces to pay a higher carbon tax than in Quebec. Trudeau’s special deal for Quebec shows the carbon tax was always about politics, not the environment.

He is trying to ban thousands of additional long guns. The original gun ban and buyback was already ineffective and expensive. This could cost taxpayers another $1 billion. And it won’t improve safety.

British Columbia MLA Todd Stone put forward a private member’s bill to freeze politician pay. It would’ve killed the $10,000-pay raises for politicians. Too bad the rest of his colleagues couldn’t keep their snouts out of the trough. The B.C. government refused to debate Stone’s bill.
