Krayden: Trump puts environmental crusaders in their place Poor Justin Trudeau. The prime minister is “disappointed” that President Donald Trump has yanked the United States out of the ridiculous Paris climate accord. Our minister of the environment and “climate change” (yes, that’s her official title) is also disappointed. But Catherine McKenna assured Canadians on Thursday that the U.S. walking out of this environmental boutique won’t stop the deluge

Trudeau’s carbon plan will fail

Trudeau’s carbon plan will fail
Trudeau’s carbon plan will fail To be credible, a carbon pricing plan intended to reduce industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change should be national in scope, consistent in application and 100% revenue neutral. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon pricing plan, released last week by Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, is none of these things. It is a political fraud because it will not do the things the Trudeau government

What we still don’t know about the federal carbon-pricing plan – And to move forward with it, when US in not, is just beyond stupidity.

What we still don’t know about the federal carbon-pricing plan Maura Forrest The federal government has unveiled its new carbon pricing plan, and while it’s almost a carbon copy of Alberta’s plan, many questions remain. The federal plan, announced Thursday by Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, is a hybrid system like Alberta’s, which will charge a levy on fuel and create an emissions credit trading system for large industrial polluters. The le

John Ivison: Radical U.S. environmentalist calls Trudeau ‘stunning hypocrite,’ targets museum’s links to oil John Ivison Bill McKibben, a radical U.S. environmentalist who would prefer to keep all carbon in the ground, has upset the Trudeau government by calling the prime minister “the brother” of Donald Trump on climate change. Now, McKibben is lobbying the Canadian Museum of History to cut ties with its sponsor, the Canadian Association of Petroleum

Catherine McKenna’s climate train – She is so stupid that she has no clue just how much of a moron she really is.

Catherine McKenna’s climate train – She is so stupid that she has no clue just how much of a moron she really is.
Catherine McKenna’s climate train While U.S. President Donald Trump has effectively gutted the Paris climate treaty, Canadian Environment Minister Catherine McKenna is correct to say “no one person can stop a train”. Except the train isn't designed to lower industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change. That train crashed 15 months ago in Paris, when Canada and other nations signed the United Nations climate treaty. It contains no

Cap-and-trade auction little more than a cash grab

Cap-and-trade auction little more than a cash grab
Cap-and-trade auction little more than a cash grab It’s hard to imagine how even Premier Kathleen Wynne’s incompetent government could screw up its first auction of carbon credits to major industrial emitters Wednesday under its new cap and trade plan. That’s because this one only involves Ontario industries and the province established all the rules. The bigger gamble will come next year when Ontario joins the roller coaster California-Quebec cap

Trudeau silent on carbon pricing costs

Trudeau silent on carbon pricing costs   It’s obvious why Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doesn’t want to release federal government estimates of the cost of his carbon pricing plan to Canadians. Historically, polls show that when the public is reminded that “carbon pricing” means higher taxes and/or prices for most goods and services, public support for the idea roughly shifts from two-to-one in favour to two-to-one against. That’s why poli

Ontario leads way to carbon pricing hell

Ontario leads way to carbon pricing hell
Ontario leads way to carbon pricing hell   When it comes to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s national carbon pricing plan, Canadians deserve straight answers on two questions. What is it going to cost them and is it going to work? Will it actually lower industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change? Ontario Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk recently evaluated Premier Kathleen Wynne’s version of Trudeau’s national carbon pri

Reevely: Ontario's $28M-and-counting wind-farm fiasco laid bare in trade ruling Ontario’s government signed an electricity deal with an American company to build a wind farm at the eastern end of Lake Ontario, froze the project, and then wanted to treat its own decision like an uncontrollable act of God to get out of the contract it signed, an international panel found in a ruling saying such behaviour is not OK. We knew our provincial government
