The Problem: Canada isn’t producing enough to make an impact.---Julie Ali The carbon tax is just another tax in Alberta to be used by the GOA for it's own purposes. We have essentially a green washing GST forced upon us. It won't change anything for the world. It's sad but there you go.

Julie Ali While this taxpayers association has some adherence to Tory parties and Conservative politicians such as Brad Wall it does do us a service in terms of bringing up the waste of public dollars. Its useful to talk about this waste of our cash. And it is also useful to puncture the baloney balloons about the Conservatives being better than the other political parties in terms of public money management. The Conservatives are worse at public money use and they get away with it better. Brad Wall's government promoted a CCS project that only profits the oil and gas industry; citizens will pay more for their electricity and will subsidise the oil and gas industry as well. It's useful to do some research when reading anything published by anyone these days.https://www.saskwind.ca/boundary-ccs/ 26-Mar-2015. The $1.467-billion Boundary Dam Carbon Capture and Sequestration (CCS) facility is the world’s first industrial-scale, post-combustion, CCS project. It is located outside Estevan, Saskatchewan and commenced operations in October 2014. To date there has been no publicly-available analysis of the revenues, expenses and profitability of this project. That information is urgently needed as decision-makers in Saskatchewan and around the word, consider the relative merits of CCS for mitigating carbon dioxide emissions. Today's report, by Saskatchewan Community Wind, addresses that information deficit and is the first which considers the cash and, to a lesser extent, carbon flows associated with the $1.467-billion Boundary Dam Carbon Capture and Enhanced Oil Recovery Project. This report does not concern itself with the technical viability of CCS.

Our report finds that the project generates losses in excess of $1-billion for electricity consumers of Saskatchewan: they will be paying for those losses through higher electricity prices for many years to come.

That this CCS project was nonetheless built may be related to the nature of the principal beneficiary: The oil industry will substantially profit from a below-cost source of carbon dioxide which it will use to increase oil production from the aging Weyburn Oil Field in Saskatchewan.

Brian Bem This tax has zero to do with climate change! That is just another Globalist liberal lie to transfer wealth from working people! Time to get an honest conversation!
Patrick Eugene Thomas The name says it is a federation of Canadian taxpayers. I have nothing to do with this group despite being a taxpaying citizen. The group is misnamed. Please change it to something more honest. I'd suggest Conservative Whiners Federation To Support The Wealthy.
