Dion's carbon plan will "screw everybody"; and more
The Conservatives shifted into the comedy zone today as they continued to poo-poo Liberal Leader Stephane Dion's anticipated "Green Shift" plan for the environment.
Conservative MP Jason Kenney says if the Liberals get their way, Canadians will be "shift out of luck."
Kenney told the Commons today a slogan taxpayers might adopt for the carbon tax that's included in the plan could be "shift happens."
Stephen Harper today issued a more traditional (though still not inappropriate) swear-word condemnation.
The prime minister had some uncharacteristically blunt words Friday for a carbon tax proposal by Stephane Dion's Liberals, saying it would "screw" the country.
"(The carbon tax plan) is like the national energy program in the sense that the national energy program was designed to screw the West and really damage the energy sector - and this will do those things," Harper told a small crowd in Saskatoon.
"This is different in that this will actually screw everybody across the country."
