Dar Dealmeida Julie Ali Funny how the carbon tax has been working to reduce emission in 26 European countries and yes some of them contend with winter weather



By taking the middle road — by standing up to “extreme” positions from the left and right — Premier Rachel Notley can position herself as the reasonable politician trying to balance the economy with the environment.
When President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris agreement on climate change this week, I’m pretty sure he didn’t give a moment’s thought to…

Julie Ali Now that the NDP and Green Party are in control of BC I doubt that Ms. Notley will get approval for pipelines.
She has no climate leadership plan in my opinion. How can a greenwashing GST dressed up as a Carbon Tax which returns the tax to most Alberta
ns change behaviour of ciitzens? And if behavoiur doesn't change well then consumption is the same isn't it? So what does this GST do? Well it provides some revenue that the NDP folks will use for other greenwashing projects that would not be economically feasible otherwise.

Meanwhile electricity generation by coal fired power plants will be phased out ASAP. This will increase electricity prices for all citizens. I don't see why we had to go this route when these plants were being phased out already. Was the speedy phase out to beef up the weak Climate Leadership Plan? 

This plan seems to be designed to make the oil and gas industry appealing to the global market and ensure the federal government agreement on pipelines. It's a failed Climate Leadership Plan in my opinion.

Swing voters like myself who voted for the NDP won't vote for this party that has lost it's values and is in the wilderness much like the PCs are.

The faliures of the PCs and the NDPCs only leaves the Wildrose Party as a place to park our votes.
It's too bad.
The NDP folks had one chance to make a difference and change the culture of the GOA and they simply lost their way.

Julie Ali Dar Dealmeida And how will a tax that is given back to most citizens reduce emissions in Alberta? It's a greenwashing GST that is designed to make the oil and gas industry palatable to the rest of the world. BC isn't buying it. And really if BC doesn't buy it, will pipelines happen? Nope. Unless of course you want to have Standing Rock 2.0 again?
