Premier tries to explain how carbon tax is good for people

I am sure most of you in British Columbia got your $100.00 Environmental Cheque in the mail this week?
Now our illustrious Premier sans Disco Dance shoes, tries a new mode of style to dazzle us with brilliance, but baffle us with BullPOO!! With Charts, Calculators, Spreadsheets, lots of distracting Hand waving, his New style is more akin to a Doug Henning Magic Show, with a touch of Circ de Soliel thrown in.
As we watch the show spellbound, Government minions are in the audience silently picking our pockets, after all you didn't think that $100.00 the Premier gave you was Free Money, Heavens NO, that was your Tax Dollars returning to sender. Of course $100.00 today in the bank will net an interest rate of 0.03 cents per annum, but in Government legalise, when the Government gives you $100.00 of your own Money, they stand to reap tenfold in interest they will get back from you in carbon taxes for doing so. Certainly doesn't seem a fair rate of interest for you, but then your Government never tells you the whole PACKAGE! So sit back, shut up and watch the Show!
Premier tries to explain how carbon tax is good for people 'It's really about growing people's paycheques,'

VICTORIA -- Premier Gordon Campbell says he's not at all surprised people throughout B.C. are objecting to his new carbon tax.
"If you poll someone and say, 'how do you feel about a new tax?' they're going to say, 'I don't like it,'" Campbell said in a lengthy interview with The Vancouver Sun Thursday.
But, Campbell said, the carbon tax needs to be seen as part of a bigger package.
