When the left here licked their wounds and sought to find out what went wrong for them to lose the unlosable election, they saw a BIG RED flashing sign.

"Climate Change".

One State in particular, Queensland, has a heavy investment in coal mining, which the Left declared would be shut down. This would have the effect of putting 10,000 people out of work and of course the flow on effect of thousands more in supporting businesses losing their jobs.

The voters in that State emphatically voted against the left. It's a large State with a lot of seats the left needed to win.

They did not win a seat. It was game over.

Lesson learned, I hope.

I read that in Canada 92 per cent of carbon taxes are paid by average people and not big emitters..

The federal Liberals gave twelve million dollars to one of the biggest grocery retailers to make their freezers more efficient..

In Alberta, the former NDP government gave millions of carbon cash to big oil companies to reduce their carbon footprint..

None of this has any change on the climate, but it forces average people to choose between heating their homes and driving to work..

It forces the Calgary school board alone to pay one million more in one year for school busing..

Carbon taxation is morally repugnant.

Saskatchewan has never had a carbon cash grab before Justine forced one on us. People are already feeling the increase in fuel, electricity and heating costs. And this is at twenty bucks per tonne. It's going to fifty in three years and who knows after that.

Carbon taxes and cap and trade are another weapon used by prog money to destroy the Western middle class. Canadians are the most indebted peoples in the OECD. We are going into a permanent recession. We can't afford anymore charges and our elected scumbags know it.

The last middle class worker in this shit hole of a country called Canada please turn off the lights. You won't be able to pay the bill anyway.

A Liberal campaign focus on abortion would be a distraction

The current opposition leader has made no attempts to hide his socially conservative views. However he’s always made it clear that these are personal views. Scheer has never said he wishes to introduce legislation on abortion. The past week he’s been confronted on this again by media and Liberal politicians.

This is a shame. It’s a distraction and a waste of time.

Former PM Stephen Harper never touched the issue – and said he never would. Scheer as PM would no doubt be the same.

If the Liberals want to attack Scheer, they should do it on real issues. This isn’t one of them.

Andrew Scheer is a white nationalist who will take away a woman's right to abortion. Oh and because he does not support Trudeau's carbon fraud tax, he is a denier too. This is how Trudeau's will try to get reelected.

OTTAWA — A new poll suggests the federal Liberals have stopped the bleeding from the beating they took in the SNC-Lavalin furor.

The Leger poll suggests the Liberals have closed the gap slightly with the front-running Conservatives since April and dissatisfaction with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his government has eased a bit.

More significantly, the poll also suggests the Liberals have opened up a 14-point lead over the Conservatives when it comes to which of the two main parties Canadians would prefer to see form government after the Oct. 21 vote.

At the same time, however, the poll suggests more Canadians are worried about the prospect of four more years of Trudeau’s Liberals than they are about the Conservatives regaining power.

The poll of 1,528 Canadians, randomly recruited from Leger’s online panel, was conducted between June 7 and 10 for The Canadian Press; polling experts say online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error because they do not generate a random sample of the population.

Thirty-eight percent of respondents said they would vote for Andrew Scheer’s Conservatives if an election were held today, versus 29% for Trudeau’s Liberals — a two-point dip for the Tories and a two-point uptick for the Grits.

Fifty-eight percent registered dissatisfaction with Trudeau’s government, down seven points, while 36% said they were satisfied, up five points.

And 25% picked Scheer as the leader they think would make the best prime minister, unchanged since April, while 22% picked Trudeau, up two points. Another 8% picked May, 6% chose Singh and 4% Bernier.

A Leger poll in April found support for the Liberals and Trudeau had sunk to a new low, in the immediate aftermath of the SNC-Lavalin affair. Trudeau lost two senior cabinet ministers, a top aide and the country’s top public servant as a result of allegations that his former attorney general, Jody Wilson-Raybould, was improperly pressured by the Prime Minister’s Office last fall to halt a criminal prosecution of the Montreal engineering giant.

While the latest survey suggests only very modest improvement for the ruling party on most questions, the biggest change came when respondents were asked whether Canada would be better off under a Liberal or a Conservative government: 34% preferred the Liberals versus 20% the Conservatives. In April, the Liberals had only a five-point lead over the Conservatives (30 to 25) on that question.

Another 13% said they would vote for Jagmeet Singh’s NDP, 11% for Elizabeth May’s Green Party and 3% for Maxime Bernier’s fledgling People’s Party of Canada.

The Trudeau government's decision to shut down any further investigation into the SNC-Lavalin scandal was tin pot dictatorish, but it stopped the Liberal slide. JT will remain pm after October. God help this nation.

Be wary of polls.

They have shown a consistency to be utterly wrong in recent times.

Brexit, Trump and our own Morrison were predicted by polls to be trounced, some indicating a complete whitewash.

Yet they were wrong.

Some opine that people are deliberately and wilfully providing untrue responses to pollsters rather than disclose their actual sentiments.

There has to be some truth to this, because even during our recent election, exit polls from booths around the country predicted a Labor landslide, and these are usually fairly accurate as they ask those leaving booths how they voted. The only way they could have been catastrophically inaccurate was because those polled failed to be truthful.

I tend to trust the poll because the Conservative provincial government of Ontario's support is dropping because of perceived deep cuts and it's having an effect on the federal Conservatives.

And there is the ongoing problem of Andrew Scheer is still relatively unknown to a lot of Canadians. Justine sucks all the oxygen out of the room.
