    In this case, the fools and useful idiots think they are buying their way to salvation.

    People who choose to use more fossil fuels are choosing to redistribute a small portion of their wealth to those that choose to use less. The choice is up to the individual.
  • Thanos: Typical Canadian government dishonesty and hypocrisy in action. Identical to what they did with tobacco. Hate the product, try to cripple the producers, get on their virtue-signalling podium to demonize the users, and at the same time collect massive amounts of taxation off of something that provides them with a critical amount of revenue for all their other little precious schemes and pay-offs. And never ban it either, not just because of the taxes it provides, but because they simply can't live without a convenient target to incessantly white-knight crusade against.

    Too bad hypocrisy isn't a length of wire because Canada deserves to have it wrapped around it's throat and tightened until it chokes to death.
  • BeaverFever: Since almost all citizens will collect more than they pay, its not possible that the government is collecting “ massive amounts of taxation off of something that provides them with a critical amount of revenue for all their other little precious schemes“ , is it?
