Doug Ford says he needs to make the tough decisions. He should have done so 4 weeks ago, we should never have opened any region in March! If everything had stayed close, we would not be here. I lay all the blame at his feet.

“We’re going to rebate and give you your money back” to which my reply is than what is the point of a carbon tax? I was told a carbon tax will make us emit less carbon by raising the prices on things like gas therefore causing people to use less of it to save their money.... Why would I use less if I just get all my money back? Carbon Tax is a feel good policy for idiots who don’t think things through.

CBC has been lying for years by stacking there so called panelists with left wing nut cases to do their slandering for them. Disgusting and deceitful politics definitely not news, No need to wonder why they have a laughable 937 subscribers
