Heads Expolde As Kommie Canadian Rightist Leader Want's $2500 / Month Carbon Tax

Why Andrew Scheer will never be prime minister
electorate will be as narrow as his views.
Jason Kenney hopes to be premier of Alberta. Doug Ford hopes for the same
created equal.
There are five reasons that Scheer will never be prime minister, despite the on-again, off-again bungling by the Trudeau government.
Reason number one, Harper deja vu. Canadians got a bellyful of Northern
a GOP-style political base in Canada built on the same values is doomed. It will just remind voters why they dumped these guys the last time.
Reason number two: Mother Earth. Justin Trudeau will eat Scheer alive on the environment. Though the Liberals have broken key promises on this file, and will pay a price in British Columbia for doing it, they have at least recognized there is a problem.
In an attempt to dampen controversy over dubious pipeline projects, Trudeau has established a carbon-pricing regime. It may not get Canada to its Paris

for good measure. Here is how Scheer, powerful man of marksmanship, described his own hunting prowess:

cheques of the gun lobby, could advocate for larger magazines for guns. Only such a person could propose making the purchase of guns less of a paper chase and more of a breeze.
Why was MP Michelle Rempel so happy about her gifts? Because she thought that she would now be able to bring her gun to Ottawa.
(Turns out she had to return these best gifts ever to their donor, a lobbyist at the Canadian Coalition for Firearm Rights.)

That may be why he also says that the RCMP should be stripped of its power to reclassify guns. It may be why he wants to review the Criminal Code and scrub all federal regulations touching the acquisition, usage and transportation of firearms.
The Liberals, not always wizards on the subject of gun control as their ill-fated gun registry showed, modestly improved things with Bill C-71. The
backdrop of the awful regularity and hideous outcomes of school and other mass shootings in the United States.
But instead of banning semi-automatic weapons, as some gun advocates had

The bill also creates more comprehensive background checks on those seeking a firearms license.
Finally, it ushers in mandatory record-keeping for gun vendors.
Try as they might, however, the Conservatives will have a hard time trying to characterize C-71 as a backdoor gun registry. Their gun stand is a last stand, in the terror age ushered in by weapons like the AR-15.
Reason number four that Scheer will never be prime minister is his narrow band conservative values. He routinely says that such a charge is just character assassination, but his record speaks for itself.
A pro-lifer in the abortion debate, Scheer nominated Conservative MP Rachel Harder to chair the committee on the status of women. Harder, an anti- abortionist, was ousted by pressure from the Liberals and the NDP.
It was a stupid but revealing appointment. The pro-life movement was
in favour of having Ottawa fund anti-abortion groups.
Scheer also voted against same-sex marriage in 2005.
In his defence, the Conservative leader reminds people that he asked Ottawa to condemn Russia for persecuting the LGBT community in Chechnya. Good for him.
But that measure might have had more resonance if he could lay aside his preoccupation with Chechnya long enough to march in a gay pride parade in Toronto or Vancouver.

for fiscal management is a pleasant fiction.
It is true that Trudeau is spending the numbers off the national credit card, as he weaves his way toward a budget deficit of $23.4 billion.
But after inheriting a budgetary surplus from former Prime Minister Paul Martin, Scheer and his party ran deficits in seven of the nine years they were the government. Eight of nine actually, if you discount the creative accounting in 2014-2015.
His was the party that pissed away $1.1 billion on the G8 and G20 summits in 2010, and was willing to make the largest purchase of military equipment in Canadian history without even knowing the firm price of the F-35 fighter jet.
Not to worry, however. After 2019, Doug Ford could probably find something for Scheer to do in Ontario. Though it chills the body fluids to say it,
