Dion and the Stampede

Apparently Liberal leader Stephane Dion will attend the Calgary Stampede this week so he can sell his "Carbon Tax Shift" scheme to Albertans.

And that makes sense.

After all, the Stampede is the perfect place to unload some political bull.

He's not going to rub elbows with the surfs at Stampede. He's going to flip flapjacks at a Liberal only function at the Zoo.

Bill:

I did a blog post on this with a screen shot from the Liberal website outlining the "Stampede" events for Dion. One is an exlusive reception for Laurier Club members at a restaurant and the other is a $40 a plate pancake breakfast at the Calgary Zoo.

Dion's Green Shaft Plan
(carbon tax on every breath you take)


Every breath you take
Every move you make
Every bond you break
Every step you take
Ill be taxing you

Every single day
Every word you say
Every game you play
Every night you stay
Ill be taxing you

Oh, cant you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every step you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
Ill be taxing you

Since youve gone I been lost without a trace
I dream at night I can only see your face
I look around but its you I cant replace
I feel so cold and I long for your embrace
I keep crying baby, baby, please...

Oh, cant you see
You belong to me
How my poor heart aches
With every breath you take

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
Ill be taxing you

Every move you make
Every step you take
Ill be taxing you

Ill be taxing you
Ill be taxing you
Ill be taxing you
Ill be taxing you...

He should do what Joe Clark did at the Stampede in 2000/01...that being, run out of gas while in the parade.

At least then it will prove his carbon tax really works.
