The deal promised by Trudeau was for provinces to support the carbon tax in return for getting more pipelines done. That was a lie.
With opposition to the carbon tax surging across our nation, the announcement by Kinder Morgan that they are suspending ‘non-essential’ work on the Trans Mountain pipeline has destroyed any shred of credibility the carbon tax may have had left.
As they pushed the tax on provincial leaders, the Trudeau government said that going along with the tax would mean pipeline approvals, ‘social license’, and smooth sailing for future projects.
That was a lie.
Instead, we are left with the carbon tax, and pipelines are still being blocked.
It’s the old bait-and-switch, and the Trudeau carbon tax is now 100% discredited.
While it had no real credibility left among common-sense people, the inability of the Trudeau government to deal with the radical left B.C. NDPs anti-Canadian energy agenda totally reveals the emptiness and dishonesty of the messaging used to sell the carbon tax in the first place.
After all, if the carbon tax had lived up to its billing, then there would be no opposition from B.C. to deal with in the first place.
Additionally, the Trudeau government had no problem forcing the carbon tax on unwilling provinces, but are taking a hands-off approach as the Trans Mountain pipeline is delayed to death – showing their true ideological allegiances and priorities.
The carbon tax was a fraud from the very beginning, and that’s something that nobody can now deny.
