Scheer made the comments today before the Royal Glenora Club in Edmonton, while delivering the latest in a series of pre-election speeches setting out his policy objectives ahead of the October federal election.
"It's clear that every time there's a Trudeau in the Prime Minister's Office, our union begins to crack," Scheer said.
...He singled out the federal government's carbon pricing scheme — which imposes a carbon tax on provinces that do not have plans of their own to price carbon — as particularly divisive.
"Trudeau's carbon tax is a betrayal of Confederation's early promise," Scheer said. "The discord he has sown has prompted an unprecedented number of legal actions against his government coming from provinces frustrated at his overreaching."I wonder how long before this is echoed in somebody's make believe "war room"?
This is not to defend nor praise Scheer's target, Justin Trudeau, who pulled a giant whopper out of his backside today to claim that his carbon tax, laughably minuscule as it is, is Canada's answer to fighting climate change.
“We need to be taking real action to prevent climate change. That’s why we’re moving forward on a price on pollution right across the country, despite the fact that Conservative politicians are trying to push back against that.”Scheer is malevolent. Trudeau, well maybe he's only a neoliberal dimwit.
