‘We’ve had enough’: Protests over carbon price hike halt traffic across Canada (NL Premier calls for emergency meeting

Anger over the increase to the federal carbon price led to protests across the country Monday, including several that stalled traffic on the Trans-Canada Highway and at provincial border crossings.

“We’ve had enough,” Jeff Galbraith, a People’s Party of Canada candidate, told Global News at a rally in Hope, B.C. that grew throughout the day, with protesters later disrupting traffic on three nearby highways including the Trans-Canada.

“I think we got a lot of frustrated, disillusioned, disheartened, disenfranchised Canadians. A majority of Canadians … they feel they have no voice anymore.”

In Cochrane, Alta., hundreds of protesters blocked the Trans-Canada Highway down to a single lane. RCMP officers were on hand to monitor the event.

“Gas is coming up. Everything’s coming up. We can’t afford it,” said Nicki Langlouys, a participant in Monday’s protest. “I know people who are losing their homes.”

N.L.'s Liberal premier calls for emergency meeting with PM as anti-carbon tax protests snarl highways

Protests erupted across the country against the federal carbon tax on Monday — the same day it rose by 23 per cent — while Canada's only Liberal provincial leader pressed for an emergency meeting to discuss alternative ways to cut emissions.

In a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey called for an emergency meeting of leaders throughout Canada, arguing the program is too costly for his province and doesn't work as intended.

Holy crap - that escalated quickly.  I heard there might be a few protests but this was much larger and widespread than i thought.

I hear there was even honking! No bouncy castle so - no need for the emergency act just yet.

People are seriously pissed about this.

Remember when some on the left said that nobody cared about the carbon tax increase and PP was wasting his time rubbing the liberals' nose in it? Yeah - turns out people do care a little.

I can't see trudeau backing down - he doesn't care any more.

Trudeau's got a lot of protests to deal with it would seem

And....yesterdays news cycle has died a painless death.

New day today and we move on because it is what it is.

Carbon tax affects me a lot. Fixed income and all. But , why would I want to waste my gas and time driving slowly down the highway using higher priced gas? Trudeau is fully aware Canadians hate his carbon tax and his climate program but, as we all know, he and his cabinet and MP groupies do not give a shit.

I'm quite certain PP doesn't give a shit about climate change - I know his groupies don't but I think he still feels some need to pretend he might.

I bet if he did a repeat of the apple video with a kitten he'd be even further ahead in the polls.

well there you go - you can stop voting for someone who doesn't care but pretends he does to voting for someone who doesn't care and doesn't pretend he does :)

I know as a liberal and ndp supporter you prefer your politicians to lie to you but - give NOT lying a try and see how it goes

But one thing is crystal clear -  YOU personally don't care about climate change. You don't give a shit. You just enjoy virtue signalling about it.

 So you can't think it's a very serious problem in the end.  Or you'd have been all over the whole 'carbon tax' fiasco ages ago.  I've told you that  people would get fed up with the whole issue if this kept up. 

Heck i've been telling you for decades now :P

You've certainly crammed a decades worth of posts into a few months but all that ever comes though is rubber, glue and projection.

Ain't that the truth LOL

15,800 posts in just a touch over a year. If he told anyone anything for decades, maybe that is why he is here, no one else out there wants to listen to him anymore  :)

Oh look - you've run out of your own lame excuses and are reduced to copying others :)  "I SAY STUPID THINGS BECAUSE YOU POST SO MUCH!!!!"" DERP!! :) 

And once again your stupidity is my fault :)

I get that the simple truth makes you lefties angry. It's like your kryptonite.

End of the day you still don't give a shit about climate change, only virtue signalling.

LOL - You sure spend a lot of time posting to me for someone who doesn't want to listen :)

And for a guy who repetatively posts ass porn as his arguments i'd say you're not in any position to critisize others posts :)

But it's nice you could get the Cdnfox-made-me-cry support group together :)  Failures do love company :)

I'm sorry i lied.  But i'm not sorry that i support hamas when they rape and mutilate Israeli women. The israelis had it coming and rape is justified.  But i do oppose them burning babies for carbon reasons.

well there you go.

LOL, I was not posting to you but you seem to search me out to make stupid comments LOL

I have not posted your selfie for weeks but you cannot get over old insults. Perpetuating this only demonstrates your low esteem. LOL

I don't need any help with "cdnfux is a fool support," you do that alone... all are self inflicted wounds. LOL

50 stab wounds... worst case of personality suicide we have ever seen LOL

I gased up my car yesterday. The carbon tax raised the price from $1.549 to $1.589 per litre. To think, a few months ago, it was only $1.769. Oh, the humanity. How will we ever survive?

1) - you realize that means that the ACTUAL cost of your gas had gone DOWN to 1.25 a litre right? But you just didn't get the benefit.

2) - it's 206 today in vancouver . Maybe the station you were at forgot to put it on yesterday :)  

End of the day you seem to be arguing that a 25 cent increase in tax somehow won't raise the price of fuel.  Do you need me to explain why that's dumb? You can't work that out yourself? Like - really?
