Column on target

I am fearful that our new lord and savior, JT, might just sign us onto a future of constant taxation

Great column by Tom Fletcher (Inconvenient truths of climate change in the Dec. 2 Saanich News).

I saw the headline and was cringing as I thought it was going to be another pro-climate hysteria piece about how we are all going to die, just shrivel and roast, if we don’t decrease the three per cent human-produced CO2 of the 0.032 per cent of the global atmosphere.

I am fearful that our new lord and savior, JT, might just sign us onto a future of constant taxation and austerity on everything we do through peer pressure and just wanting to look good for the vocal minority and his new international crony buddies. Again well said.
