    Jun 8, 2022 | 06:05 3 So who isn't concerned about rising costs of everything?

    The Cons want to lower gas taxes for everyone rich or poor whether they need it nor not. But many of the lowest income people don't own a car or even drive. So how would they benefit?

    The NDP wants to target income support to the the lowest income Canadians which need help making ends meet for rent and food and other basics.

    The Cons only care about winning more votes with their cut the gas tax offering. Their policy would do nothing to help the poorest Canadians.

    But they obviously don't care about supporting the most vulnerable with an ineffective and more expensive policy. Reply With Quote

    Inflation is a monetary phenomenon. It comes from too much money printing - MMT. Justin printed up $650B and sloppy Joe printed up another 10T in the past 2 yrs.

    To reign in inflation, they will have to pull back the liquidity and to do that will sacrifice the housing market, the stock market and labor markets.

    Reap what you sow. And voters too dumb to figure it out. Zero sympathy, I hope they enjoy it.

  • Jun 8, 2022 | 06:37 6 There are multiple causes of inflation. Energy prices are one of the biggest drivers right now.

    But cutting gas taxes doesn't make sense when trying to support the poorest Canadians many of whom don't drive.

    Cutting gas taxes will get you more votes and that is why it appeals to Conservatives not because they want to help those who really need help. Reply With Quote

    jazz's Avatar Jun 8, 2022 | 07:16 8 On the contrary chuck, I think taxes on fuel should go up much more including a big jump in carbon taxes to $50,000 a ton.

    I am so worried about climate change. Trudeau said its a big problem and I follow what he and the science says. Reply With Quote

    Where have we heard this argument before? Multiple causes?

    I remember now. That is the excuse he provides for why electricity costs always go up when unreliable energy is added. Reply With Quote
    Jun 8, 2022 | 09:36 11 I think the rise in energy costs are the root of inflation. Energy costs have risen because in order to have a plentiful supply of energy there needs to be a steady investment in exploration and development, even renewables as well. With worldwide vilification of fossil fuels a lot of money left, cooling demand and near collapse of demand during Covid further kept a lid on things. Now with this war going on and no sizeable alternative suppliers because of what is aforementioned we have high energy costs. Worst time to be decarbonizing the world. Reply With Quote

  • Jun 8, 2022 | 10:48 12 Inflation gets to a point it gets worse because everyone builds it in.

    Wage contacts won't settle without bigger increases in upcoming years.

    Retail margins have to go up to cover anticipated extra cost.

    Commodity futures go up because speculators expect higher prices. Reply With Quote

    Let me get this straight, Jagmeet Singh wants an excess profit tax applied to the most profitable corporations(Pfizer maybe) and then redistribute this money to the lowest income earners. This won’t buy any votes? Would this increased money going from government to consumers fuel more inflation? Reply With Quote

  • Jun 8, 2022 | 13:37 14 Where’s the logic? The government has killed the fossil-fuel industry, replaced gas and diesel with ethanol and bio diesel so guess what——— fuel supply tightens and fuel sky-rockets and grain supplies are depleted and food costs follow. Surprise-Surprise, but it’s not the government’s fault. BS Not to mention that these same dufus governments have increased the money supply exponentially and have giving away free money like drunken sailors but oh no - not our fault.

    It’s 100 % their fault.

  • Jun 8, 2022 | 14:24 15 Trudeau’s speech to Afzaal Family in London on CTV. Declaring we are all part of the Afzaal Family, good grief. He doesn’t need to write a book on how to divide a nation and incite hate.

    London CTV News: Trudeau said,” We are all Muslims in Canada. We are all Afzaal family members in Canada.”

    Jun 16, 2022 | 15:29 23 Don Martin at CTV pulled no punches in a recent comment about the Prime Minsters tanking acceptance among Liberal faithful.

    https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/don-martin-the-fall-of-justin-trudeau-has-begun-1.5946788

    "TOO WOKE, TOO PRECIOUS'
    "And while this is hardly scientific, after a weeks-long survey of just about everyone I’ve met and many of them Liberals by voting inclination, the overall judgment on Trudeau is one of being a political write-off with their body language alternating between exasperation and eye rolls.

    He’s too woke, too precious, preachy in tone, exceedingly smug, lacking in leadership, fading in celebrity, slow to act, short-sighted in vision and generally getting more irritating with every breathlessly whispered public pronouncement. And that’s just the one-sentence summary."


    Don Martin might move on to be CTV'S Rex Murphy if he goes on tour doing speaking engagements after life at CTV.

    Right Chuck?
    Lots of opertunity there.

  • Jun 17, 2022 | 06:15 24 But you would prefer the elitist career politician Pierre Polievre who thinks crypto currencies are a good investment? LOL

    As bad a Trudeau is, Crypto Polly is even more pf a dud.

    opinion
    What the crypto crash says about Pierre Poilievre’s judgment

    Gary Mason

    National affairs columnist

    "The presumptive favourite to win the CPC leadership has been much quieter about cryptocurrency these days. I wonder why?

    Perhaps it’s because the crypto world is imploding, just as Warren Buffett and his partner, Charlie Munger, had suggested it might. Two of the history’s greatest and most profitable investors have been down on bitcoin and the cryptocurrency industry almost from its inception. Mr. Buffett famously said he wouldn’t pay US$25 for all the bitcoin in the world. Mr. Munger was even more condemning, saying that in his life he tried to avoid doing anything that was evil, stupid and made him look bad in comparison to others: “Bitcoin does all three,” he said.

    The paranoid style in Conservative politics has deep roots

    Pierre Poilievre’s good fortune: His supporters don’t see his hypocrisy

    This week, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said cryptocurrency was based on the “greater fool theory.” This is the notion that investors can make money on something relatively worthless, as long as there are people willing to bid higher for it.

    Recent crypto losses have been estimated to total as much as US$1.5-trillion. The value of Bitcoin continued to tumble this week, with trading down as much as 8 per cent to around $20,000. In November, it was trading at almost $65,000. The total value of the cryptocurrency market has dropped by 65 per cent since last fall, and many analysts believe the floor underneath it is still collapsing.

    One concern amid all this is the possibility that many Canadians bought what Mr. Poilievre was selling earlier this spring. And why would that be a stretch? The man, after all, is “running to be prime minister.” Surely, he wouldn’t recklessly promote something that was inherently risky.

    Story continues below advertisement

    I understand the allure Mr. Poilievre holds to many disenfranchised people out there, with his spectacular promises to get rid of the so-called “gatekeepers” allegedly ruining the lives of so many. Gatekeepers such as the Bank of Canada, which Mr. Poilievre regularly trashes. But the same gatekeeper, it turns out, did issue cautions about this very situation.

    Who looks stupid now, Mr. Poilievre?"

    Agree the crypto thing is stupid but compare apples to apples our pm is a career politician and before that a rich playboy riding on pappies and grandpas coattails. Really though if this is all you have on Polivierre to criticize him for the argument to discredit him is further becoming moot when compared to the pm’s conduct. Reply With Quote

    There is only one cause of inflation and thats your govt and central bank egg heads merged with the covid zero net zero fanatics.

    Freeland launched a new campaign to fight inflation with...you guessed it, more inflation. 9B dollars.

    Maybe you missed the hundreds of millions Trudeau gave away to other nations this week.

    This is what the world would be like if we ever let these fools try to bring in that climate bullshit.

    There are multiple cause to inflation and of course the die hard rightwingers want to blame it all one one cause. Pure politics or as some would say bullshit.
