Achieving Net-Zero Emissions: New Brunswick’s Carbon Tax Challenge

In the pursuit of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s ambitious net-zero emissions goal by 2050, a recent report from New Brunswick has unveiled a daunting reality: a carbon tax exceeding $350 per tonne is imperative. This revelation comes as a significant call to action, emphasizing the need for robust and binding policies to pave the way toward a sustainable future.

The Path to Net-Zero Emissions

The report, titled “Pathways to Net Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions in New Brunswick,” underscores the shared commitment of both New Brunswick and the federal government to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. This objective entails a comprehensive reduction of emissions, striving to minimize them to near-zero levels while offsetting any remaining emissions through carbon dioxide removal from the atmosphere.

The Gap to Net Zero

Under the report’s most conservative scenario, the gap to reach net zero emissions by 2050 is projected to be 6 million tonnes. This undeniable gap underscores the necessity for rigorous and non-negotiable policies to close it effectively.

The Call for Strong Carbon Pricing Policies

To bridge this gap, the report unequivocally states that “strong and compulsory policies” are an absolute requirement. Specifically, it advocates for an effective carbon price exceeding $350 per tonne by mid-century. This price point, or a comparable suite of regulatory policies with equivalent impact, is deemed essential for realizing the net-zero emissions target.

Current Carbon Pricing in Canada

At present, Canadians residing in provinces subject to the federal carbon pricing scheme pay a carbon tax of $65 per tonne. However, the Trudeau government has set its sights on a $170 per tonne carbon tax by 2030.

Economic Impact and Concerns

Last year, LifeSiteNews reported that the second carbon tax introduced by Trudeau, effective in July, would impose an additional annual burden of $1,277 on the average Canadian worker.

Despite government attempts to downplay the economic repercussions of these climate regulations, recent findings indicate that food prices are outpacing the overall inflation rate, with staple items surging by 10% to 18% year over year.

Franco Terrazzano, the federal director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, has expressed concerns over the likelihood of further carbon tax increases. He emphasizes that such taxes, while impactful on Canadian wallets, do little to address emissions on a global scale.

Provincial Resistance and Advocacy

New Brunswick is among several provinces pushing back against federally imposed climate regulations, asserting that they will exacerbate the challenges faced by Canadians. Premier Blaine Higgs has vocally opposed the added financial burdens and called for recognition of their adverse impact on everyday lives.

In contrast, some western provinces, notably Alberta and Saskatchewan, have vowed to prioritize the well-being of their citizens over the federal government’s demands, which they consider unconstitutional. These provinces stress the critical role of oil, gas, and coal in their infrastructures and economies.

Global Initiatives and the Trudeau Government’s Agenda

The Trudeau government’s environmental objectives align closely with the United Nations’ “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” This includes phasing out coal-fired power plants, reducing fertilizer usage, and curbing natural gas consumption over the next few decades.

Furthermore, the World Economic Forum (WEF), an organization in which Trudeau and some of his cabinet members are involved, advocates for the reduction and eventual elimination of fossil fuels in favor of “green” energy sources. This aligns with the WEF’s broader “Great Reset” agenda, emphasizing global sustainability and climate action.

In conclusion, achieving net-zero emissions is a complex and challenging journey that requires decisive action, including a substantial carbon tax increase and comprehensive policy reforms. While the road ahead is fraught with economic concerns and political resistance, the urgency of addressing climate change remains paramount on the global stage.

  1. That is really interesting. Weird how nobody asked what the Irving Oil company has to say about that?
    Weird how nobody talked about the advanced fuel systems technology you wrote about? and what about that mystery billionaire, he is probably buddies with Irving, but maybe not for log, Comeau v Irving, Comeau building 2 refineries in Canada. It is Public knowledge that the Orenda Engines Limited relaunch of the Orenda Iroquois and related engines is about $1 billion in fuel per year, unleaded no MMT please, no chem trails either please and thanks for protecting Canadian airspace with the kick ass aircraft. Irving does not have MMT in their fuel apparently, remember the NAFTA court deal where the US company sued the Canadian government for banning MMT in fuel, a known neuro toxin? that’s not classified or hate speech either bucko.

    Extra weird how the state of Arizona can be totally planted with these oil palm trees and make the USA totally independent with real bio fuels, like they can tap the oil palm trees and burn it in diesel trucks no problem, like we tap maple trees and make maple syrup, that would end most oil related war and foreign oil energy imports for the states, nobody is talking about that, are they?

    Weird how Canada is doing business with a criminal terrorist organization involved in bio-terrorism and genocide like UN, WEF, WHO etc, that is weird, isn’t that aiding and abetting a terrorist organization, or engaged in terrorism, which is the use of force or the threat of the use of force? Isn’t that treason and high treason? Oh sorry, that’s a badge of honour, I forgot, altruistic me.

    Weird how these people are not talking about all the amazing things we learn at, about weather control technology, or that maybe taking lead out of jet fuel and not spraying chem trails everywhere, which is an act of war on the citizens and environment…and what about all the microwaves killing everything and heating things up, that is what microwaves do, in addition to being an illegal space based weapon system to augment ground based kill zones by the penitentiary 15 minute city, microwave tower guards, like Hawaii incineration, there can be no escape, any comment on that? What about plastic pollution everywhere, isn’t that a big deal?

    Apparently less hot air in Ottawa, since robots don’t breathe, however have a thermal signature, in addition to being able to be detected by the loyal yard dog…not Pavlov’s dog either, since he held a revolver to the guy dressed in a lab coat, and said, “I’m through begging” and his firearm was confiscated by another commie anti gun fascist and went to jail…his doghouse was incinerated by 5G and yard was fenced 12ft high, his bitch and puppies were stolen and never seen since, probably went into depression, most likely got killed so he could not bark and disturb the peace otherwise known as the official narrative, or went to the pound again for not being licensed to be a dog, running free and doing what a dog does, this may be an opinion but no bones have been found buried there, so no evidence anything ever existed or lived there, liked revised history. It never happened, like the 22 ice ages, or the fact that plants change CO, or Nix of SO or whatever it is, etc into breathable air, or we’d all be dead. Photosynthesis, right? Oh sorry a white man figured that out, and what God invented, can’t talk about that, can we?

    So all those global warming climate change alarmist control freak genocide maniacs are actually ignorant and don’t know anything about science except the science of genocide and anything anti nation state. Amazing, authority by imbeciles, maybe they are narcissistic, is that possible? or only sociopaths with no conscience? that’s it, global warming is caused by sociopaths with no conscience, the global alphabet gang, un elected, non government, now we know…traitors produce 100 times the global warming as normal patriot citizens, GMO cows produce more methane and global warming than ordinary cows, traitors and global warming climate change maniacs produce over 100, 000 times more greenhouse gases due to flying in jet planes everywhere and taking limousines everywhere to lecture everyone on austerity and eliminating fossil fuels and white people depopulation, electric car production creates 4 times the pollution as internal combustion, charging one electric car consumes more power than a 16 unit apartment building, hmmm, now we have the math and the science, no bank account, and no justice and you will like it, actually you will hate it, but that would be against hate speech laws… which is why you need to drive something that gets 200 mpg and tell nobody about it.

    fight global warming, drink cold beer or cold apple cider !!! that’s the solution eh make it a craft beer or craft cider, top it up with apple crumble cheesecake, made in Canada eh and chill out man, actually get ready for the next ice age, because everything in mainstream “legacy” media is a lie or propaganda, right? Fake news , that’s a good one, the understatement of the year. Legacy is a code word for____? or someone somewhere, should write an article about all the political speak, what it actually means
    sorry to be so annoying, I was born that way, like all these things are too weird not to notice, right? As in nobody in any political party or mainstream news channel, that is weird, look for it, you will be looking for a long time.
    So vote for me, made in Canada, jet planes, cold beer and cider, great boots, reliable well made trucks and no more bullshit. Alive and well on the family channel.
