Crazy experts what do they know

It might of been nice to hear about this a little sooner.

More than 120 of Canada’s top internationally renowned scientists released a letter yesterday urging Canadians to vote for the environment and support a carbon tax.

This group of scientists has been insulted by the Conservatives, said David Schindler.

The Tories, treat the science department with disdain, slashing budgets, muzzling federal scientists and ignoring the threat of climate change.

What the Conservatives propose is absurd. It’s the foolish way to go he said. A carbon tax is the most effective economic tool to deal with global warming, their letter states.

Earlier in the week 230 of the countries top economists banded together calling for an economically coherent action on climate change, that includes a carbon tax.

It’s remarkable how much agreement there is among economists on this key point,” said Nancy Olewiler, an economics professor at Simon Fraser University. The best climate change policy is to put a price on carbon.

So 350 of our leading scientists and economists agree that a carbon tax is best economic tool we have to combat climate change and 34% of Canadians believe in truth in advertising.

I have a sweater vest to sell these idiots.

The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …

Election close call, Omar, Bob and move over Warren

Wow that was a close one:
With the NDP leading in the polls at the beginning of September, I started to prepare myself, for the very first time in my life, to vote for the NDP. Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.
