This has got to be one of the more bizarre linkages that a Tory backbench has ever made, connecting last Sunday’s Super Bowl power failure to the fake NDP carbon tax. Still, the Conservative member for Mississauga-Streetsville has a go at it:
Mr. Speaker, yesterday, Canadians from coast to coast to coast tuned in to watch one of the biggest sporting events in the world, the Super Bowl.
Just after halftime, the lights went out. The world’s biggest sporting event came to a standstill. It was a clear reminder of how important energy is to our society. This is even more true in a northern country such as Canada.
Unfortunately, the NDP’s $20 billion carbon tax plan will cause its own power outages across the country as Canadians struggle to deal with the increased cost of electricity.
On this side of the House, we understand that Canadians cannot afford a massive new NDP carbon tax on electricity. That is why we will continue to oppose the NDP’s $20 billion carbon tax on everything.
More of a stream-of-consciousness link than a causal one. But still rhetorically silly.
