Do you remember Trudeau saying that the carbon tax would be revenue-neutral? Gullible citizens believed they would get more than they paid into the scam.
Then Trudeau pulled the bait-and-switch just like he did when you were told to register your duck-hunting shotguns and hunting rifles. Wise people saw through that scam and did not register because they knew confiscation of those arms was Trudeau’s aim.
Now that the quadrupling of carbon taxes is on the table, many folks are forced to heat with high-emission wood-burning stoves.
Our First Nations people knew from thousands of years of experience to build small bright fires so as not to be choked out of their animal skin tipis.
However, many wood-burning citizens do not know how to do this but instead, they overload their airtight stoves and choke off the incoming air.
The result is that much heat energy is lost as thick, choking, asthma-inducing pollution. The only reason Trudeau is not putting a carbon tax on wood-burning users is that there is no incoming gas metering or home-delivered, home-heating oil type of fuel measuring method to calculate the despised carbon tax.
I have no quibble with any Canadian attempting to avoid the crippling tax. However, wood users need to properly manage small bright fires instead of the neighbourhood-choking, smoky fires.
