Jan 11, 2019 | 06:03 1 Thank you for bailing out Algoma Steel after they just got out of bankruptcy protection.....is one farm group paying attention to these handouts??????

Thank you to Trudeau for blowing off questions from the audience last night....the female student that worked in the oil field for summer had a great question but Trudeau didn't answer it...

Thank you to the provincial government for GIFTING a 70 million dollar irrigation project to 20 farmers ....little wonder this province has financial issues....if it was a money maker why not sell the project for a return to the taxpayers....

Thank you Scott Brisson for resigning to spend time with family and avoid jail time....or are you switching to the NDP....

Thank you to CBC for spending more time interviewing americans impacted by the government shutdown than Canadians impacted by Trudeau's incompetence....

Thank you to the dummies that agree to bring a Saudi to Canada ....like that is going to help foreign relations.....leave her where she is....

A big thank you to all who were able to get in and see the idiot. He is like Ralph a true liberal, smile and wave and talk a circle around but never answer a simple question.

It must be part of the liberal orientation. Talk and talk and talk and answer nothing.

Big thank you to the guy who stood up and said well so far you didn't blame harper with all your answers.

Big thank you to all who went and made the event at the UofR great.

Big thank you to CBC who is more worried about the USA gov shut down than Americans and doesn't report how pissed off Canadians are getting at the Idiot Trudeau.

Big thank you to the useless liberals who are going to give us all a rebate check for the Carbon tax before we start collecting a carbon tax. Is that like hush money or bribe money in an honest liberal way.

Sad but I still think like father like son. This useless piece of Shit will get another term as a minority and screw up Canada even more. People in this country love a handout and Trudeau definitely knows how to do that.

Big thank you to the great weather we are having in Saskatchewan. Snow just enough and wind, ok its Sask. and temps at -12 today. That is a gift. Min 47 with the wind not my kind of winter.

Big thank you to Bucket for this good idea for a Friday. Reply With Quote
Jan 11, 2019 | 07:06 4 Is this carbon tax rebate cheque a tax credit or an actual cheque?

SASKFARMER3's Avatar Jan 11, 2019 | 07:40 5 It sounds like a check from good old liberals to every household. $600.00 in bribe money and it should arrive just in time for the 2019 election for shit for brains.

Maybe he isn't so stupid it's just the people of Canada that are stupid we can be bribed with our own money. Reply With Quote

No one has answered if there is GST on the carbon tax but more than likely the refunds will come from the tax on a tax.....you are right ...the people of canada are stupid....

I can not reduce my fuel usage any further and with 2 kids with drivers licenses now.....it won't go down....they have to go to work or school events and they can't hop on a public transit system anywhere in rural saskatchewan...

Plus with being encouraged to go to seed tax forums or other farm shows or just for parts....not sure WTF...how a guy reduces his fuel usage...even though I have asked government people to start putting this stuff on an interactive stream so a guy could be informed and involved without wasting a day driving....

Trudeau's Town halls could be done with him sitting in Ottawa ...he doesn't need to be answering questions in person with generic answers and talk in circle for 5 minutes for each question...

Jan 11, 2019 | 08:41 8 Love him or Hate him ,you have to give Trudeau credit for having the guts to attend an Open meeting and answer questions.
One thing I always hated about Stevie was that all people attending were Vetted and all questions were known ahead of time. Consequently there were NO media scrums ever.
Journalism is one of the main hinge pins in democracy.

I don’t like what he’s doing either but don’t forget he’s got the same number of pipelines built as Stevie.

Jan 11, 2019 | 08:54 10 The Sask Party govt bitched and moaned about carbon tax and Never came up with an alternate plan
So instead of the money going back to Sask govt where it can be used Go green initiatives or whatever
It comes as a tax credit.

Sask party has to realize we are 1 % of population but 10 % of GHG.
We are per capita the highest co2 emitter isn’t the world. Oh look there goes my neighbor Broadcasting fucken Urea on the snow ?!?
Our provincial govt has zero foresight and only one government policy here it is “Trudeau is bad, bad ,,Trudeau bad Trudeau Reply With Quote
Jan 11, 2019 | 09:02 11 There are 2 ways to slow Co2
1. Very Stringent REGULATIONS

2. Or Carbon pricing which is market based solution

Conservatives ,as Preston Manning has said , should not be Arguing Against Carbon Pricing but how it’s implemented
But instead we’ve got Miny Moe using this as a political wedge instead of working on the implementation Reply With Quote

Jan 11, 2019 | 09:48 13 I went to the U of R last night. As I arrived at the university, I was greeted by many horn-blowing semi tractors, I think they were associated with an oil line protest, though I can’t confirm that. The parking was adequate and Kinesiology auditorium was huge and 80% filled. The crowd around me appeared to be comprised of mainly foreign students. I saw no farm groups nor any farmer or rural showing, kinda sad when agriculture is a major economic sector in this area. One fellow from Fort Qu’Appelle asked when CSIS was going to get the cameras out of our houses. When a statement from the floor was made regarding Sharia law and its ability to mix with christianity the foreign students were gasping and other sounds were yelled out on the floor. Trudeau quickly put a lid on the crowd. I am not sure that a university auditorium with mostly foreign students was the best venue to get a societal perspective that JT was looking for.

BUT - I really felt like JT deserved a lot of credit for having the guts to stand up to some of the questions asked at the town hall. He answered some questions,was adept at skirting some other issues and addressed even the most rediculous with respect.

He has guts but he is no statesman. He has a difficult job but his most important priority for a national leader has to be the economy and in order to advance the nation, he needs to stand up for his country —— And He Doesn’t seem to be able to do that though he might get the message by the time he completes his western swing. Special interest groups have high-jacked the nation and the national purse. JMHO Reply With Quote

Dead wrong. The 3rd way is to incentivize people. Punitive measures never work. Taxing the necessities of life just makes people take money from some other purchase like going to a movie or using kids clothes another yr. It impacts the economy somewhere and that's what will happen with the carbon tax.

Give people a tax credit if they decide to make improvements in their home and lifestyle. If you want to do the 20 yr payback in rooftop solar, then give people credit for it. There are other ways as well. Improve the insulation in your home, replace windows, switch more electric to NG. People would jump all over those programs. Reply With Quote

Give me a break. Look at the questioning that trump takes everyday. The hostile media corner him every day. He has scrums right in front of his desk. He invites members of the other party right into the chamber to talk.

Trudeau has only ever handled softball questions. He always makes the occasion and diversity show with zombie audience. What better place to go than our most naïve people in university. A real man would have invited a couple of the protesters in and asked whats their problem as if he didn't already know.

But someone tried to give him an economics lesson;

Oh so somebody is drinking the drama teacher koolaid telling us carbon dioxide is pollution?!
In reality studies show a Carbon tax doesn’t effect behaviour until it is taxed at $300/tonne or higher so the proposed rate will reduce every wealth creators net worth and savings....including ALL grain farmers.

Killing Northern Gateway Pipeline, Energy East Pipeline and bringing in extra regulation and allowing fringe groups to stop the twinning of Transmountain Pipeline will prove to be devastating to Canada.
According to Trudeau the most effective way to reduce Carbon Dioxide is to kill the economy with a hard recession recession and export jobs to other jurisdictions....🙈 Reply With Quote

I was able to connect some dots, the voice in that video belongs to a fellow who grew up in the next town east of us....how do I know? I saw the video on the CTV News @ noon.


As much as I don't like Trudeau, you have to give him credit for taking unscripted questions from the floor.

When asked about KinderMorgan, he said the Gov bought it because they were going to back away from it. A voice from the audience asks "why?"(was KinderMorgan was backing away). Trudeau replies...because of the "political" risks were too great.

WOW....no more needs to be said?

Taking a question a nd answering it are two different things as we know. He should have known a question like that might come when he gets away from his Ottawa and media bubble.

The right answer was to declare the project in the national interest as in support of our programs and our deadbeat sister Quebec, pass legislation to that effect, evoke the notwithstanding clause and start construction. That what trump did in the US. Now oil is flowing.

Fringe groups do not identify with country, neither do the natives. There is no persuasion or consultation that will ever change their minds. Reply With Quote

Apparently we are going to drill under the coal, under all the oil and try to find some hot water.

You are dreaming if you think that all your carbon taxes will be refunded back. Obviously that $ will be spent on gender neutral Liberal projects in Quebec.

Only way to eliminate the carbon tax is vote Trudeau out of office. Reply With Quote

What ideas are you talking about. Do you mean Devine which was 30 yrs ago. Attempts to diversify the provincial economy are not always going to work. BTW, sask has the lowest provincial debt per capital in the country. Its the best run place in confederation and doesn't have a massive resource, equalization and fed bailouts. And only a million people. Find another place on the planet as industrious.

What is the carbon tax going to do. If gas increases 10c are people going to run out and put solar panels up. Nope, just stop going to a restaurant once a week so the overall economy suffers. People will just shift their priorities when the necessities of life are taxed. Most people wouldnt have the $30k needed to put up a solar array or switch to a hybrid so you are counting on the few rich people to do this. Govts wont invest in 20 yr packbacks. Neither will private companies. Rich people wont have their freedoms curtails so they will claw it all back using their accountant. Net benefit is ZERO and whole bunch of pain for nothing.

Not dreaming and your right it won't all come back and just like the pst us farmers will pay the largest share. Which farm group is even mentioning that? But at least some come back from the carbon bullshit I did hear something from apas not sure but they mentioned if carbon is going to be valued farmers should be getting large amounts of money back. But is it just lip service to say we tried or are they going to effectively get mad and get going on it?

Is there any guarantee rhe carbon tax won't be scrapped and then replaced with another one not related to carbon if rhe conservatives get in? We ve seenrhsg happen before.

We have to start thinking about long term solutions. Ethanol bio diesel etc could be peesued but who's doing that? No one because the oil industry doesn't want it and they control our puppets.
It's not all as simple as some make it out to be.

Brad Wall made a good comment he other day saying farm groups need to speak up and speak more together. Reply With Quote

Jan 12, 2019 | 08:55 30 Agree, the “farm” groups are majorly just another form of taxation with not a squeek out of them. About 10 years ago the Canaryseed producers decided they needed to be taxed. They “set out” to find a human consumption or pharmaceutical use for the grain. I wonder how that is going. I hope we will get an update this coming week.. 🤔 Reply With Quote
