Not for the faint of heart.

As much as I am trying not to sound like side show barker, I would not be good citizen if I did not offer the following warning to all of my readers.

I must warn everyone now that what you are about to hear is not for the faint of heart. If you are hypertensive, have a heart condition, have a weak stomach, are a Liberal, or have any other serious medical issues, we cannot be held responsible for what happens if you choose to listen to the following radio interview. You have been warned!

John Gormley interviews Liberal MP Ken Boshcoff, of The ‘shift’ will transfer wealth from rich to poor, from the oil patch to the rest of the country, and from the coffers of big business to the pockets of low-income Canadians." and Dion's carbon tax is "a green anti poverty plan" fame.

Listen to the interview HERE.

Calling that performance by Ken Boshcoff a train wreck would be putting it mildly; it was a total disaster.

Right from the beginning of the interview Boshcoff is pushing the 'Green Shift is an environmental policy' spin, I guess someone from Liberal HQ has had a little chat with him on this point since his last fiasco, and sounds as if he is reading from a list of talking points mumbling and stumbling around with his spin about how this is a national plan, increased benefits for the country, and about refineries that were NOT built. Listen carefully from around the 7 minute mark as Boshcoff gets knocked of script and falls flat when Gormley asks him the simplest of questions. Ugly; I do not think we will be hearing Mr. Boshcoff do many more interviews in the future.

BTW, to answer Mr. Gormley's question, since Ken Boshcoff had no clue.

Of the 15.4 billion dollars that is expected to be collected with the Dion's carbon tax, the amount that is supposed to go back directly into the environment is zero dollars. Yes that is right, zero. None of the money collected will go directly to environmental measures or technology to reduce CO2. Dion and the rest of the green shift pushers all like to talk about all the money that will flow in to the provinces, universities and business for environmental tech research etc, but Dion's plan provides NO money for this, and the Liberals never say just where that money will come from. They can't say; because the money does not exist other than in the minds of the Liberals trying to spin this pie in the sky nonsense to Canadians and looking like fools in the process.

The facts are the facts and no amount of Liberal spin will change this; the green shift is not an environment plan.

On a more serious note, the comments from Boshcoff really do tell the tale of the Liberal's Carbon Tax plan. No substance, no continuity, no numbers, and no costs.

Well, except the cost to Canadians should the good people in Eastern Canada be taken in by this smoke and mirrors show.

From what I have been hearing on talk radio out of Ontario, the wheels are coming off of the plan there as well.

Thanks Platty, JC was truly was one of a kind. As much as the Liberals like to claim that PM Harper rules with an iron fist, he is a rank amateur compared to JC.

Speaking of serious; Have you noticed the almost total absence of liberal supporters on the BT blogs lately?
