The Carbon Tax

I’m not sure of the revenue amounts this will bring into government coffers, but it’s something in the region of $35.000.000. Our honest and transparent premier tells us we will get this money back in the form of energy savings etc. Heat pumps come to mind. While a heat pump might be nice for a few home owners, it does nothing for those of us renting, or indeed homeless. It will do nothing to easy the burden of fuel costs, rents or food. For these insurmountable cost we have received one prized solution from Darlene Compton. The minister of finance tells us to tighten our belts. I can only surmise why King is grabbing the carbon tax, it’s for his future budgets. We are closing in on another election and he wants to look good. He will be able to brag about a positive budge, how he and his government have guide us into a bright economic future. He, of course won’t mention that he has managed this on the backs of unfortunate islanders. He will soon be on your door step, smiling face and a pocket full of empty promises. Please do not be fool again, remember it was the invisible back room boys that gave us King in the last election. I’m not going to recommend you vote Green or NDP, but do recommend you do not vote PC or Liberal. We need change, not only in politics but also in the systems we use to elect candidates. The FPTP is redundant and must be changed. We can no longer afford 35-40% Lib/PC majority governments. That’s my two cents worth for today, gee! not even sure I can afford two cents?
