Dis­gusted by car­bon tax, feel­ing hu­mil­i­ated

Medicine Hat News - - COMMENTS -

I feel once again dis­gusted that these so-called gov­ern­ment peo­ple be­lieve they can do what­ever they want and stuff garbage down our throats. I re­ceived the so-called re­bate to help out with this pu­trid car­bon tax. It says they de­posited $100 into my ac­count. I don’t use di­rect de­posit. I feel to­tally dis­graced, as I be­lieve the car­bon tax will cost every in­di­vid­ual $3,000 to $5,000 per year in ex­tra costs. It is not just about heat­ing, trans­porta­tion and hy­dro. Ev­ery­thing we buy is con­nected and it will go right down the line in prices ris­ing, espe­cially food.

To think gov­ern­ments think we are so stupid that we can be hu­mil­i­ated like this. Mind you, the stuffed the met­ric sys­tem, GST, etc. It hap­pened. How did we let it? The whole pop­u­la­tion should have marched on leg­is­la­tures and par­lia­ment and stopped this. None of it has helped the peo­ple, it’s just taken more money from the pub­lic and given it to gov­ern­ment to waste and give to them­selves. Now peo­ple, you have to re­al­ize that the great pic­ture boy down east is go­ing to car­bon tax us some more. All for noth­ing, as peo­ple have been forced to cut cor­ners al­ready, or lost their homes.
