As it should be.

It transcends provincial borders and affects every person in the country, and the provinces are free to legislate on their own, the federal tax only applies to laggards who refuse to create systems that meet federal requirements.

I'm surprised Kenney isn't crying about it right now. And I'm sure he will spend as much time on it has he did cartoon Bigfoot, not a sentence or two that he did when condemning racism a few days late.

Please let the "Wexit" bullshit die. This province that is the actual West has had a carbon tax, instituted by a conservative gov't for years before the feds.
None of us have died of starvation or froze in the cold, and it pales beside the everyday gouging of the oil companies.
No tax increases, barely a rise in oil prices and gas from Albertwa oil, refined in BC went up 30 cents a litre because "there was a storm in Texas and Americans are using more gas now as Covid ends..."

I am a patriot to this province but not to it's inept government. As such I have no choice but to side with anything that vexes their idiot plans and disastrously belligerent ideology.

Things will get monumentally worse for Albertans until this government quits picking losing battles against the feds and the federal system. But they won't because they're about a thousand times more interested in their joke of an ideology than they are in governing this province in an effective, efficient, and positive manner. This brand of conservatism is an obsolete failure and it's taking too many people down with the sinking ship.

Read the National Post. Their report is to pick a dissenting opinion and praise that Judge as a hero. Pure butt stubborn for 'C'onservatives.
Two articles later, how they must unite behind OToole to ever defeat Trudeau for the 'c'onservatives.

O'Toole can't even unite his caucus.

Fun fact: Conservatives like Jack Mintz and Preston Manning were some of the first advocates of carbon pricing, saying that it would be a market-based approach to reducing emissions. Not to mention that Teck Frontier cited Alberta's lack of and opposition to carbon pricing as one of the reasons they decided not to open their mine. Investors and customers are increasingly demanding these things, and I can't help but think that Kenney's and Moe's actions make us look like we're ignoring the market signals.

We're getting whacked over Bill C-69, but we have other problems that neither Trudeau or the provincial premiers can really do anything about. Those include the U.S. becoming a net oil exporter and going from one of our biggest customers to our biggest competitors, the supply glut caused by the Saudis and the Russians and the number of jurisdictions phasing out gas-powered vehicles.

We'd be getting our asses kicked by the free market even if Stephen Harper was still in office.

O'Toole should have never become leader.

And of the dogpile that ran who should? I'm not seeing ANY strong contenders.

Not choosing MacKay was a big mistake. His history, going back to when he was one of the sole PC's left when the Reform wave arrived, was one of not taking crap from extremists and populists. If he's been selected instead of O'Toole I highly doubt they'd be having gaffes of the sort they've encountered in the last year, like with Derek Sloan or that foolish outhouse video.
