“Any reductions in Canadian emissions caused by the Trudeau tax grab will immediately be erased by China’s booming coal industry and its refusal to impose the kind of job-killing carbon tax schemes being sold by the Trudeau Liberals.
There will be no positive impact on the environment, but the effect on our pocketbook will be concrete and measurable.”
Groundhog Day for the virtue-signalling climate elites. Australia tried the “Carbon Tax”. It didn’t change the weather, simply shifted “emissions” (jobs) to China. Welcome to hell Canada 🇨🇦

Canadian inflation spiked to its highest rate in more than two years in January, as new carbon taxes in Alberta and Ontario fuelled a surge in gasoline prices.
Statistics Canada reported that the consumer price index was up 2.1 per cent year over year in January, the fastest pace since October, 2014, and up sharply from 1.5 per cent in December.

Is it a FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) case involving former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn or a lower-level knucklehead like Carter Page? …[I]t would be somewhat anticlimactic to find out that this was the alleged crime underlying our current white-hot constitutional crisis…
