It was a beautiful event. Not a mention in the Globe. Was there any MSM coverage? Did channel 5 show anything?

We have many Mondays to come!

The Greens are raising our electric bills by blocking natural gas pipelines. I hope there's a candidate available who will speak to this. I am paying $.22 per kwh. for April.

Here is a video recording from the 5/20 Forum in Amherst: www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_0hnLNj59g&ab_channel=AmherstMedia

What is CAN's position on nuclear power? Is there room for discussion of next-gen nukes?

Please share!!

The revenue from a carbon tax will never flow from the left side to the right side. It will disappear in the administration of it. The big main polluter will be exempt. The carbon tax is only a ticket to keep on burning fossil fuels.

Our position is that we need to do it all. Carbon fee & rebate, and ALSO advocating & educating for policies leading to collective and personal conservation, energy efficiency; accelerating the transition to clean, renewable energy; regenerative farming; resisting new fossil fuel projects... there is much to do and all of it necessary.

It will turne out as it did in Australia, first nobody believed Tesla that they could install it in the time frame they gave and also didn't believe it would work. The proof is in the pudding.
