Cost of challenging climate change.

The bills keep rolling in. Dougie and the Deplorables should take their show on tour and give things a rest at Queen’s Park. This provincial government, that ran on promises of saving us taxpayers money, ran up bills over the summer that make the previous liberal regime look like pikers.

And to make matters worse, this new conservative government spent most of the money on cancelling the efforts of the previous liberals. You would at least hope that the liberals did something right?

But Dougie had a very expensive summer. He has added billions to the provincial budget. He could have to tax us another 20 billion or so, just to balance the books. It was as though he was searching for opportunities to add on debt and blame it on those spendthrift liberals. The immediate bill for cancelling the Ontario cap and trade carbon controlling deal with California and Quebec is over three billion.

What Dougie is going to cost us in law suits and failed opportunities in tax revenues keeps mounting. He no sooner launches his own supreme court challenge to the federal government’s suggested carbon tax but he heads out west and offers to also spend money on the climate change primates in their Alberta and Saskatchewan’s court challenges.

Hell, we do not even know what a lot of pending law suits against the new Ontario government are going to cost us. They range from the strange firing-cum-retirement of the guy running Hydro One to the parents tired of being ‘coitused’ around by Dougie over sex education for their children. Everybody seems to want to have a piece of Dougie’s ass.

And I certainly would not recommend to him that he stick his big nose into things at Toronto city hall very soon. Those people are ‘mad as hell, and not going to take it any more.’ Since the premier seems to have a legal right to ‘coitus’ around with the number of councillors on city councils in Ontario, I am not sure it is law suits that he need worry about.

I am not at all sure that the premier is anywhere near done ‘coitusing’ us.

His promise to save us a bit on gasoline prices disappeared into the pockets of the oil companies. Similar to his foolish ‘buck-a-beer’ promise, it was a waste of time and something he could do little to control.

No doubt Dougie has lots of little surprises for us over the next four years. I just hope we can afford them.
