These are your elected fed MP's, @Sask

One's only policy initiative is to bring back plastic straws

Another thinks Trudeau can be blamed for things that are the prerogative of the prov gov

And the last can only churn out absurd attacks using "scary" dark colors

Is this the best we can do?

@dmacphee What a joke! That 1.4B would have paid for a new heating system for every home in

Or better yet, blanket the province with EV chargers.

Carbon capture is a waste of money and essentially a scam. Reducing emission production in the first place should be the focus.

A damning finding but not surprising. failed citizens.

“Newly obtained internal data shows the Saskatchewan government knew COVID-19 was spreading at an "exponential" rate in the fall of 2021, providing new insight into what officials knew before a devastating COVID-19 wave hit the province…days before the provincial government publicly declined to re-introduce measures doctors said were urgently needed to stop the spread of the virus.“

Gotta love how right-leaning Canadian news orgs uncritically blame the carbon tax for increases in gas and food prices while not looking at all at the massive profits the corporations selling them are making.

The federal government has a new online "calculation sheet" to figure out your carbon-tax rebate:

https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/child-family-benefits/cai-payment/canada-carbon-rebate-calculation-sheet-2023-alberta.html

It's quite literally a sheet, though.

Like, you can't type in it. It does no calculations.

I guess you're expected to print it out and pencil in all the values and use a calculator?

If Canada axed its carbon tax — and rebates — this is how different households would gain or lose:

High-income households would tend to be the biggest winners, lower-income households hurt the most

Carbon levy spat.

Premier Moe blaming the federal government for penalizing families is a complete crock. The blame falls on him…period. Ideological nonsense from the

Why Doug Ford's actions this week should be greeted with a sigh of relief - Ontario's premier deserves kudos for distancing himself from Danielle Smith and Pierre Poilievre and right-wing populists.

Yes, there is something "unusual " when a sitting government pass legislation allowing them to create police forces via Order in Council and having sole power to appoint oversight commission personnel.

"In #sask the equivalent of nearly nine in every ten $$ of corporate income tax revenue was sent back to businesses in the form of subsidies"

No wonder the @PremierScottMoe gov thinks it can't afford #healthcare and #education in the prov.

They chose their masters.
