Yet another Tax Grab by the Liberals

I took a survey just recently and your all going to love what it was about. Apparently the Liberals are now considering forcing us to have our vehicle exhausts tested three times a year at a price of $50 a pop. That's $150 charge a year that is somehow going to make our environment better. Why, are cars breaking down that quickly? I thought cars now a days were more reliable than that.  So like the closing of the coal plants this is either another attempt to appease the environmentalists or just another blatant tax grab by the Liberals.

WHAT!!!  As opposed to once every 2 or 3 years as it is now??  I truly hope this was a straw dog--set up to gauge reaction.  And I hope you expressed your opinion in no uncertain terms.   We should all keep an eye out for this sort of clap trap,  and offer a flaming bag of excrement on the doorstep on any pollster who raises the issue.

I most assuredly did express my contempt for this idea. By the way it's only down south here where we have to have emission tests. If you live up north you are exempt. You also don't have to pay for the yearly sticker on plates either.

Well you would think for the cost of building the 4 lanes to North Bay the people up north should pay at least the same as down here.

But the big issue is this smog tax on auto's that doesn't seem to apply to the real causes of smog down south.

Have you seen the clouds coming from some buses and trucks?
