Harper will say anything you need to hear to get elected. It worked once already and the end result was that “seniors' nest eggs” got “raided”.
This time Harpster will promise to never tax carbon. Nine months later under some false pretense, he will do that very thing. The press won’t mind, as they’ll simply roll over.
His election promise will go something like this:
“You know where the Liberals stand on a carbon tax. Whether it is death taxes or taxing carbon, a Conservative government will never let this happen.”
