Some of us have been warning of this for a long time , there is no opposition to stop it .
We are at the bottom as farmers and will get stuck with the downloading of everyone else’s carbon tax .. this was 100% inevitable.
hopefully something changes quickly Reply With Quote

  • Jan 20, 2021 | 08:12 4 Several Agriville Leftist/Marxist posters have been mocking us for “whining” about a carbon tax. This issue makes it clear who actually is a full time farmer. Reply With Quote

On the weekend when I was driving out to the farm shop with my grandson, he says to me, “ You know who is the biggest poluter Grampa, it is farmers”. They are getting this crap at school and on TV. When did schools become political forums? Reply With Quote

    Tell your grandson to say " prove that statement " its worth a trip to the principals office....

    My kids were always coming home with stories of the biases of teachers.....then we would have a talk and tell them ...we will be glad to join in a discussion with the teacher or principal about the nonsense they are spewing....we had our kids backs for nonsense they had to endure from uninformed teachers...


    Never got that call from the teacher or principal though... Reply With Quote

  • Jan 20, 2021 | 08:48 7 I had a long discussion on the phone a couple of nights ago with a good friend who now farms up by Manning. We got discussing the carbon tax, electrification of vehicles and solar power. He had installed a ground mount solar system in 2019. I was talking about how I felt it was wrong that Canadian governments encourage and subsidize production infrastructure that is not made in Canada. He said I was wrong, when he was buying his solar panels he payed $10 more to get panels made in Canada, when they came they had a maple leaf sticker on them. So I said the only solar panel manufacturing plant I knew of was in London, Ontario and it is now permanently closed(Canadian Solar Solutions). So he said he was going to look into it because he didn’t believe me. So he phoned the company he bought the panels from and I was correct, while there are some components made in Canada, no solar panels are made in Canada. The ones he bought were made in China, the only Canadian part was the sticker lol.

    The real agriculture article was an informative read and the additional costs of rail freight due to the increasing carbon tax are just the tip of the iceberg imo!! Reply With Quote

    For at least 12 years. Our school was sending home worship Obama flyers with our kindergartener. It wasn’t the only reason, but it along with so much other crap going on in today’s schools, that we decided to homeschool our kids and avoid the sheeple indoctrination. Our kids know right from wrong, how to think for themselves.

    Disclaimer. Not all schools are as bad as our only choice is. But ours is plain nasty.a rural, leftist nasty indoctrination facility, full of revised non history. Reply With Quote
