Federal gov't lawyer getting roasted by judge in carbon tax fight...
"Climate change is an 'urgent threat to humanity' that knows no boundaries, a
federal government lawyer argued Tuesday, as a judge reviewing Ontario's
carbon-tax challenge asked why Ottawa won't leave the province alone.
'We know that climate change is an urgent threat to humanity,' Ms. Telles-
Langdon said in her opening remarks to Ontario's court of appeal in Toronto.
'Greenhouse gas emissions are not contained within geographic boundaries. They
are an inter-provincial and international pollutant.'
She later added that it's an 'unquestioned fact' that pricing reduces emissions
- and requires a national solution."
If it's such an urgent threat to humanity, then why are the feds now bringing
in more that 300,000 immigrants per year - mainly from warmer countries - all
increasing Canada's carbon footprint? Do the Liberals hate humanity?
And of course the lawyer is lying: it's not an unquestioned fact that carbon
pricing reduces emissions.
