RE: O’Toole wants carbon tax placed on Chinese imports

Maybe the media could point out to these politicians they are truly ass-clowns. Erin O’Toole flip-flops on the carbon tax and now talks about tariffs on China which A) is counter to overall general conservative free trade values. (not that I support China, I say we wean off China altogether) and B) China would obviously retaliate.


Worse though is Johnathan Wilkinson who says we can’t act alone etc. Really? Strange considering Liberal policy and now Conservative policy to have a go-it-alone carbon tax and other punitive anti-resource extraction policies that the US and others DON’T HAVE! Why? Because we have to be world leaders in climate policy even if we bleed to death. But it’ll all be worth while if maybe we get honorable mention and J.T. goes sailing with Greta.

Idiocracy is truly upon us.

    EVERY 20 Weeks . . . China increases their Emissions by MORE than Canada’s ANNUAL Emissions! So every year China increases 3Xs Canada’s annual emissions.

    So in the Minds of our Federal so-called Leaders . . . we need to made Canada even More Uncompetitive? This is just friggin insane . . . our Annual Emissions are less than 1.5% of Global Emissions . . . would it not make much more sense to just Wait Till the Big Emitters catch up and then we will talk?

    Reality is folks . . . this is NOT about Gorebull Warming aka Klimate Change at ALL . . . it is ALl about Wealth Transfer aka socialism & CONTROL.

    Does anyone thing for one minute that China is going to cripple their economy to save the planet from the mythical Gorebull Warming?

    Only Krazies like our Crime Minister and the Con O’Foole think that . . . lol

    With the B.S. that the Feds are pushing, Andrews suggestion has a LOT of MERIT. I am an ALBERTAN, I have lost my way of income due to TRUDEAU SHUTTING DOWN the ALBERTA OILFIELDS OPERATIONS in favour of his and his and his FAMILY having control of the oil and gas operations in EASTERN CANADA plus his attachment to SOUDY oil and paying to ship said oil to CANADA on tanker boats instead of finishing the Canadian Pipe Line from Alberta and giving CANADIAN WORKERS their JOBS instead he has NO thoughts about the WESTERN CANADIAN POPULATION, (just power and being the TOP DOG, leaving Western Canadians with NO way to support their FAMILIES, with a ONE MAN government to say who and what can be done, with no regards to the population in CANADA. How stupid is that.

    Well done Ken, conrgatulations on getting the message that not all British Columbians are of the looney left variety. Truly there is a great movement to change maps, across the west. From Idaho going to the Sea at Coos Bay Oregon, from Northern California wanting to secede from LaLA land, and now Rural and Remote BC wanting to secede from the Lower mainland, and NE BC wanting to join Alberta. and Alberta and Saskatchewan dabbling with the Buffalo declaration. Its truly a tremendous opportunity to change the way we in the west get treated by far out policies and remote governments.

LETTER: Gondek’s ‘climate emergency’ will take a toll

Turning off the oil before securing a viable alternative, has driven the price of oil past 80 dollars, forcing many big consumers to buy and burn dirty old coal.

RE: Wall says Calgary oil firms should seek greener pastures

Newly elected mayor of Calgary, Jyoti Gondek’s rush to declare a ‘climate emergency’ will keep her on the front pages, but it comes with a nasty price tag.

RE: FILDEBRANDT: Alberta’s government lied about the death of young teen Nathanael Spitzer, and the media buried it

Thank you for your well-written article about Nathaneal Spitzer. 

I’m so tired of all the clickbait headlines. The trashy stories. The articles written about things that don’t matter. The news forced on readers by those with a bigger/hidden agenda.

In the midst of a tragic time, when there is so much fear and anger swirling around, I’m very thankful to be reminded that there are writers like you that still care and want to fight for truth.

Thank you.

LETTER: Kenney shouldn’t be given any slack at all

He is the worst example I have seen as a failed politician that I have seen in my seventy years.

RE: MAKICHUK: It’s time we cut Premier Kenney some slack

I have watched politics all my life and have never seen as an inept performance as Jason Kenny has put on.

He came to Alberta as our conservative saviour. He took over a party with a message that represented a lot of people’s views especially in rural Alberta and then proceeded to ignore the fundamentals of that platform.

Issues such as the Crownest debate on rail movement of grain where Western producers actually were thrown in jail for carrying a bucket full of grain across the Montana border have brought distrust. Trudeau has destroyed in many us the desire to be a part of this joke called Canada.

Kenny apparently was the man to bring these and many more issues to the Canadian public and demand change. In spite of many letters to him to encourage him to do something he has tucked his tail between his legs and completely dropped the ball.

If you are a conservative voter as I am, trying to find any reflection of a conservative values in his policy is hard to do. To those of us who committed time and money to the Wildrose Party much of what he has portrayed is a slap in the face. His treatment of many people during this so-called pandemic is not in the interests of those of us that believe in democracy.

He is the worst example I have seen as a failed politician that I have seen in my seventy years. What a disaster he has been and as far as cutting him slack forget it. He had a clear mandate when he took on his role from the people who put him there. Your wanting to cut him slack is an insult to the Wildrose base who put this incompetent fool in and were betrayed.

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
