Talk about a Liberal Party of Canada’s scary hidden policy agenda! Apparently, the poison pill is on Page 46 of the Liberals’ Red Book # 2 — better labelled Green Shift Redux — and released by Michael Ignatieff this past Sunday.
It boggles the mind. I mean the Canadian people soundly rejected Stephane Dion’s Green Shift in October 2008. Yet, the Liberals are apparently peddling Green Shift # 2 in spite of that sound rejection but calling it something else, hoping no one will notice.
You know what that kind of arrogance suggests? It’s damn the torpedoes. Damn the Canadian people. Just as in Ontario, the nanny state, the Liberal Party knows what’s best for us. Well, sorry, but they don’t. All they know how to do is spend money they don’t have and cause absolute havoc to the economy. And, the leader of the Liberal Party, Michael Ignatieff and his supporting former MP props always surrounding him, have the absolute audacity to talk about the Conservatives not being accountable or transparent.
Without a doubt then, the Liberal Party of Canada is not even close to the political centre any more. Liberal strategists, their leader and their candidates are locked into an entirely left-wing green ideological agenda. But, while that would be bad enough, the agenda they are locked into no longer makes sense because it is based, not only on faulty and misleading science — that human activity is responsible for global warming trends — but on the faulty premise that somehow a Cap and Trade market system in Canada could have any affect on “global” emissions.
Yet, the push towards corruption and a devastation of our 21st century life styles continues. As USNews.com writes, the Cap and Trade carbon emissions system contemplated by the Obama government in the U.S.,would primarily would hurt the little guy — that’s you and me. How much worse in Canada, particularly since Ignatieff wants Canada to go it alone!
Although CTV, CBC and CPAC seem more interested in carrying on the tradition of the faux scandal of the day, listed below are some excellent media sources related to the Liberals’ Cap and Trade system, as well as related issues within the Liberals’ Red Book # 2 — from journalists that care about the bigger and more important issues.
