While defending her government's new tax on home heating fuels and gasoline, the premier said that the new tax is necessary because Ontarians are "very bad actors in terms of our per capita emissions." That's right, the new tax on keeping your family warm in the winter and on your daily commute to work is because Ontarians are "bad actors."
интересно, а онтарийцы ей жить не мешают?
In total, Canada contributes about 1.65 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. If we each reduced our per capita emissions, it would achieve absolutely nothing for global emissions, and at tremendous cost.

Even if the entire Canadian economy shut down, global emissions would still continue to climb. When politicians are willing to impose a massive new tax for zero practical benefit we should ask why. The answer is obvious: $2 billion a year in revenue from the new tax for Kathleen Wynne and her government to spend.
When Ontario's premier talks about bad actors, it's without a hint of irony. Her government spent $308 million on a cancelled modernization of the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, $70 million on the cancelled Ontario Retirement Pension Plan and $1 billion on cancelled gas plants. Spending $1.37 billion on nothing? How's that for "bad actors?"
тут вообще нечего сказать )))
And of course, there's what Kathleen Wynne has done to our electricity bills. Ontarians now pay some of the highest bills in North America, and our bills have grown 60 per cent faster than the rest of Canada.
