....sooner or later they find out there is no substance. Case in point, Kinder Morgan is not perpared to risk billions until the Federal Government enforces the laws of the land. Could be a long wait as Justin Trudeau and the Liberals on the pipeline file have done....nothing. Zero leadership. No substance.

Investment Runs Screaming From Canada

Changing rules & ignoring formal review processes causing the halting of the Kinder Morgan Pipeline has broadcast yet another message to investors that Canada is not a safe place to place your money. That hurts job creation, robs Government of needed revenue & will have an impact far greater than just Kinder Morgan....

The NDP are in court to claim that the threat to Canada's faltering Medical system is from private health care. Trouble is, that is definitely NOT the way the Supreme Court sees it after hearing evidence for over a year as Michael explains in this comment

Kiss The Jobs and Government Revenue Goodbye - along with Canada's Investment Reputation

$47 billion lost in government revenue - 800,000 man hours of work gone if the Trans Mountain pipeline gets scrapped. And for what? Best case scenario is .03 of a % reduction in global emissions. But don't worry - there's one big winner -  San Francisco based Corporate Ethics, who in 2008 launched and financed the campaign to landlock Alberta oil. Oh yeah, US oil producers are smiling too.

By making the Carbon Tax just another revenue generator, the public, realizing its just another tax grab, let the Government know in a recent survey that their support for Climate action has collapsed.

Government's Relentless Effort to Make Housing LESS Affordable

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

Constant property tax increases, the property purchase tax, development fees, GST and PST on building supplies all push the price of housing higher. And now  BC's new speculation tax will add thousands more onto the price of new condo developments.  But that doesn't stop politicians from talking about affordability.

Great Way To Reduce Support For Climate Change

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

The revenue neutral carbon tax introduced in BC in 2008 was designed as an incentive to reduce emissions with as little cost to individuals and business as possible and not another way for government to raise revenues. That's changed in both BC and Alberta, as the government gets ready to rake in billions in tax revenue.

An online poll by Abacus Data found that 30 per cent of Canadians do not believe in the science of climate change and 42 per cent said the incoming carbon tax isn't designed to change behaviour but rather to generate revenue for the government.
