About: U.S. coal leaving Port of Vancouver not subject to Trudeau’s carbon tax | Ezra Levant

Trudeau needs to go
The carbon tax money isn't even going to fund energy storage to ween off of carbon-based energy production, it's going to fund some more flowery liberal projects and buy some nice suits for those scabs under that green roof.
Trudeau is ruining Canada.
Bad cut off of video finish the subject or conversation Etc.
All those millions of tons of dirty coal being dug up and shipped to China and India and not one word out of the natives or the tree huggers , not one CRY of LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND . Have you ever wondered why ? Rebel Media you should follow the money trail
You’re kinda slow to pick up on this. Doesn’t matter where the coal comes from. It matters where it’s shipped out of. This “Port” ships the “Most” on the Planet. Now report on the fact that Jet Fuel imports have increased 2500% to the Port Of Van.
It's amazing that the port of Seattle and the port of Bellingham are proud of how they've reduced the amount of coal they allow through their ports. I wonder where all that coal is getting shipped out of?
Who, in California [or the US], owns the Coal mines that are shipping US Coal to B.C. for export to China? Can you find out who currently owns them?
Trud wouldn't dare tax Trumps coal.
Coal is in transit through Canada, thus no tax. Seems fair enough. I am pro coal, and use it to heat my house on an acreage. Coal has DOUBLED in cost with the Carbon tax. UCP will cancel carbon tax if elected.
Very interesting🤔
Christ I get pissed off at the hypocricy of this government in Ottawa. They crticize Saskatchewan for it's coal fired power plant in Estavan and claim we are putting all this carbon into the atmosphere. They keep harping about meeting our global commitment to reduce carbon emissions and produce green house gases and yet they are still allowing Canadian coal to be exported to China And other countries using it , but that is okay. What the hell is that; their emissions are going to harm the atmosphere just as much as ours so how can you justify exporting our coal to other countries. I would like to hear Climate Barbie explain this one.
In May "Premier Christy Clark proposed a $70 per tonne carbon tax on all thermal coal shipments travelling through British Columbia, regardless of the point of origin." It would be preferred by the BC Government to completely shut-down US coal exports via BC, in response to the illegal American soft lumber tariffs, but that is up to the Fed Government. Imposing the large carbon tax is their only other option, and as such it would effectively shut-down coal mines in Wyoming and Montana.
This fact only proves that the Trudeau Liberals are up to their eyeballs in hypocrisy. The carbon tax is designed not to "save the planet" but tax the existence out of Canadians. If they were true to their agenda, they would block coal from leaving Canada to be burnt in China but their true agenda is making Canadians poor and globalist rich. This is why when asked about the holes in the climate change agenda, they say the most ridiculous things because they know they have to lie to explain it.
It's interesting that Obama drove the coal miners of the Appalachia region out of business but, conveniently overlooked Warren Buffett coal interests. How many moderate republicans are reaping benefits from being fence riders to go along and get along with liberals? How many Democrats are lining their own pockets secretly benefiting from either investing in or allowing the liberal theifdoms to be concerned publicly about the environment and ridding themselves of dirty coal yet have filthy hands hidden in deep pockets..... these same people are not supporting a duly elected President Trump as designated by the people yet in their high-mindedness laud themselves as being above "We The People " and it would be of no surprise to me even God himself. It's time for all secrets to be brought into the light... the Nation needs a good cleansing....🛁🗽🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Ah, liberalism. Ain't it grand. Picking winners (campaign contributors) and
losers (small businesses, honest businesses, religious institutions). What's really
funny is the liberals call it "crony capitalism" when it is really something much
much older that capitalism. It's as old as might makes right; crime itself.
this info needs to be heard by every canadian
Good to see another energy sector besides oil flourishing. Coal fired power generation technology is equivalent in environmental impact to oil and gas fired. I do this for a living, and I'm good at it.
I just left there. Best employer in Canada. I'm a lucky Canuck
It's as big as....big as... like as big as an oil sands mine! Right on the coast of BC!

Coal stock

Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.


Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
