Terence Corcoran: Trudeau’s Liberals just got struck by the first shot in Canada’s carbon-tax rebellion
Trudeau lambasted by single mom over hydro costs: “I’m asking you, Mr. Trudeau, how do you justify to a mother of four children, three grandchildren, with physical disabilities, and working up to 15 hours a day, how is it justified for you to ask me to pay a carbon tax when I only have $65 left in my paycheque every two weeks to feed my family.”
Trudeau: 'We have to realize that we are in a time of transition right now, that the world is moving off of fossil fuels and that is a good thing and that is an important thing. Because quite frankly, the extreme weather events that are coming are going to be incredibly expensive.'
Trudeau: 'We are facing a challenge where we have to change behaviours.'
Meteorologist Eric Holthaus: 'I know many people feel deep despair about climate, especially post-election." And it's because of this, "There are days where I literally can't work," and "We don't deserve this planet.'
