That's a week old.

 

Big news dropped today from the government itself, showing Canada will be $25 billion worse off because of the tax, not including the out of pocket expenses impacting Canadians.

 

CBC (the article in that MSN link) calls the carbon tax the "federal fuel charge."  :banana:

 

I thought that's what the GST was?

Carbon tax is just the pre tax to the other tax with tax on top.

Hold on, there’s already a federal fuel charge in the price of fuel aside from the GST. So what’s the federal fuel charge, if the federal excise tax is already the federal fuel charge, on which the federal GST is charged on top of the federal excise tax, the federal fuel charge, and the other litany of taxes we pay?

Also, has the TMX pipeline reduced our fuel prices? Without the carbon tax of $17.6 cents, our fuel prices would be relatively reasonable for this time of year. Like very, very reasonable at $1.67 and much lower depending on the ststion (like right now in Sooke, with the taxes, fuel is $1.72 for 87.

Funnier still, is while Ottawa comes up with a tax name not including the word tax in in, to insist the carbon tax is not a tax, BC calls that tax a carbon tax!

The best part is they also spend OUR advertising the idea that we will earn more money from them by them taking our money and giving some back.

Thorold is severing its ties with the Partners for Climate Protection Program (PCPP).

After hearing from several delegates – all of whom supported the City leaving – councillors didn’t take long to decide, voting 7-1 in favour of a staff recommendation that Thorold leave the program.
The Partners for Climate Protection program is administered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities and ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability Canada and receives funding from the federal government.

More than 500 municipalities have signed on to the free program, which provides members with tools and technical support to help them meet the program’s five milestones: creating an inventory of greenhouse gas emitters, setting a target level for reduction, developing a plan, implementing that plan, and monitoring the impact.
https://www.thoroldt...program-9107003

here we have thre NGO never heard of before, funded by our tax dollars, pushing agenda 2030 through our local governments.

How many billions are spent on this web of organizations?

Green Municipal Fund

 

The Green Municipal Fund administered by the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) offers grants and low-interest loans that can assist with both studies and capital projects that aim to reduce energy use.

 

The Green Municipal Fund is similar to CMHC’s Co-Investment Fund in its requirements regarding energy efficiency, but there is no requirement of accessibility. This can make it a good alternative for buildings where accessibility upgrades are impossible without structural changes. Regardless of accessibility conditions, it is an option worth considering, as the potential size of the grant portion is tied to the increase in buildings’ energy efficiency.

B.C.’s drought: Water will keep flowing in capital region thanks to planning

 

Though this summer is expected to be one of the driest since 1896, the CRD is confident water supply won’t be affected — in part because of a decision made 20-plus years ago.

Even though weather projections suggest this summer will be one of the driest at Sooke Lake since 1896, the CRD is confident supply won’t be affected.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where does this actual statement come from?  I can't find it published anywhere.  Except in today's TC.

If you click on charts, then rainfall-annual, then x 10, you can go back to 1915, which is quite interesting to compare.

Have you tried the less gravity on land and more in the sea from melting ice caps causing less gravity on land and more in the sea and thus not seeing the sea level rising from shore yet?
