Government mandates a regulation on the industry that drives up the price of a product. That makes it indirectly….a tax.
I mean I get why the Liberals do it. But why are Tories doing it? You can come join me….and Maxime Bernier….on the other side where the grass…..and Canadian economy….are greener. Even Rona Ambronse sees the potential damage to our economy preserving it will cause us with Trump as President. If you think waiting for him to lose office is something we can hold out against, you are wrong. There will be mass layoffs right away in Canada. And Trump isn’t going anywhere for at least 2 more years and likely 6 more years, at which point our economy will have fallen off the cliff.
Of course the Boy Blunder Trudeau will blame Trump, but he should blame his own father who brought about Supply Management back in 1971. Do you not all see the sweet irony which has the drama teaching, hair modelling, selfie taking, pixie dust spreading Prime Minister has to smack down one of his father’s legacies?
Many of those who know me know I do not support Supply Management as it artificially changes the price of goods. I used to work for a dairy co-operative and heard the stories of drivers taking their milk loads and dumping them in the middle of a farm field as part of the process of ensuring the supply did not get into the system.
So how did we get to the point of an auto tariff trade war with the USA?
Well back in 1971, Pierre Elliot Trudeau’s government passed the bill authorizing Supply Management. Little did he know his son would be in power when it became a major sticking point between US/Canada trade relations. Trump is now threatening to levy tariffs on Canadian made automobiles and siting Supply Management (for how little it really affects things) as one of the major reasons why the USA is considering this aggressive trade move.
We are quickly getting to a point in which Baby Trudeau will need to either double down on his father’s legacy and seriously jeopardize Canada’s economy or eliminate the unfair trade practice. Pretty ironic if you ask me. In fact, my view on Baby Trudeau’s stance of measured and proportionate tariffs is this. We can bloody the nose of the USA with equal tariffs but what good is it if we are buried 6 feet under?
If you don’t agree with me, why not take Amanda Lang’s view on it? She is not a raving libertarian like me but even she knows if push comes to shove and the USA proceeds with this, our economy in Canada will be crippled.
or in other words…we would be Officially Screwed.
OfficiallyScrewed.com is a website dedicated to logically degrading, demoralizing, and deflating those that our society chooses to shower with press, praise and perfume (not to mention MONEY) for being imbeciles and officially screwing us, usually politically.
We stand for the Average Joe who wonders…
To delve deeper, OfficiallyScrewed.com is the brainchild of a fiscal conservative/libertarian who lost it after hearing about the Liberal Sponsorship Scandal. In essence, the feeling was that we were all being “OfficiallyScrewed”.
Not having any other outlet to vent, this site was created in 2005 to provide a voice to it’s creator. Because the bottom line is You either pay attention or pay through the nose. And I would rather pay attention.
Look out world. I am back….and with a vengeance
Canada will not go to the Paris climate change talks with a new target, or a concrete framework to reduce carbon emissions, according to Catherine McKenna, the minister for the environment and climate change.
What?? You snivelling neanderthal knuckle dragging anti environmental, climate change denying, selling out of the future of our children, ruining the planet, ice cap melting, atmosphere polluting conservat…….oh wait……She’s a Liberal. Nevermind…Nothing to see here.
CBC changed the headline from the original, probably to protect the Environment Minister. Seems softer now not connecting her to Harper’s targets.
How bad is this?
Well let’s do the math. By comparison, the worst oil spill in history was during the Gulf War in Kuwait and it was 240 to 336 MILLION Gallons. At 3.78 Liters per Gallon the worst case scenario for the oil spill was just shy of 1.3 BILLION Litres.
So Oil Spill of 1.3Billion Liters is bad. But Raw Sewage spill of 8 Billion Litres is ok.
Well done Minister for the Environment, Catherine McKenna. Your first week on the job and you are already making a massive impact on the environment. Too bad it’s in the wrong direction.
Talk about being OfficiallyScrewed!!!
