  1. At least Sheer actually wants to try something innovative… Time for some real change.

  2. Shut off all power, all gas, all coal all food source and we’ll all live in happiness! 🤪🤪🤪🤯🤯🤯🤬🤬🤬

    He’s right, at the end of the day all that matters is getting carbon out of the air

  4. Why not put a levy on carbon-intensive imports from countries that ignore their global responsibility to the planet, like China and India? It won’t count as credit in meeting Canada’s targets, but if those countries get serious about “saving the planet” then the price attached to emissions in more “responsible” countries should decrease as a result, and quite substantially given the amount of pollution their over-populated nations produce.

  5. Sure it will be a price on what they are over for carbon, investing into technology will save them in the first 4 years for innovation. This will further the technologies that we need to move to meet proper guidelines which is far past the Paris agreement lol.

    Do military’s pay carbon tax ? NASA ? VOLCANOES ? LOL ALL FAKE.

  7. He’s Soo calm and cool and correct

  8. The very fact that he doesn’t call out how big of a fraud the Paris Climate Accord really is. Says it all for me.

    • luckystrike you can’t expect a spineless sheer to actually speak for what’s actually going on?? Can you?

    • He’s trying to win over “all” of Canada from Justin Trudeau. That is going to be a challenge. Max voters are splitting the vote but I love them just the same.

    bye planet

  17. Yay efficiencies! 🙂

  18. Collecting money, taxes or other, will not fix the climate, science and technology will

    • Greedy sociopaths, created the problem, and governments were voted in to do the right thing for people, not CORPORATE DONATIONS!
      Why are great Plocies, less important than MONEY?

  19. No climate plan, that’s his plan!

    • Canada doesn’t need a plan. No one seems to saying how insignificant Canada’s emissions output is in the grand scheme of things. It literally won’t matter one bit if Canada disappeared tomorrow, it would make no difference and furthermore, our meager output would be replaced by the increase in world emissions within 6 months. And if it’s a moral thing/ setting an example, hate to break it to you but no one pays attention to Canada.
