Same Shift

I smell a “rename the green shift” contest coming on

Helpful tip to tell “Green Shift” apart from “The Green Shift”: Green shift logo is a ladybug. The Green Shift logo is a smiling oil splotch.


  • How about The Green Mutha F#@$ing Tax Shift ? ... pay Samuel L . Jackson for the voice overs .... give Dion some street cred as a bonus . Kinda like the Eminem and Dr. Dre thing .

  • Call it "Carbon Shift."

    It only really addresses CO2 emissions. There's a lot more to "Green" than that one, single issue.

  • "Call it "Carbon Shift.""

    Isn't the point to actually reduce carbon emissions, though? Calling it "Carbon Shift" just makes it seem like we're just moving the carbon emissions somewhere else. Wait a minute ...

    Seems to me you're confusing the Green Shift with the Conservative party's BS shift where talking points that have no basis in reality are shifted to staff members who post on blogs anonymously because they're gutless.

  • We should give up the website name.

    The plan is strong enough on its own.
    It doesn't need a useless website to convince Canadians on its merits.

    All we're going to accomplish by fighting it is turning this company into an enemy on an issue we probably both care about.

  • Or there's always the Trailer Park Boys ...there's a shifticane coming Randy , a shiftstorm like you've never seen before .....

  • This is troubling. I'm glad to see Dion staking out some policy ground and presenting a bold idea, but the party is just coming across bullying and lawyer-happy. The worst part is that the LPC obviously knew about Green Shift beforehand... couldn't they see this trouble down the road?

    Anyways, my two cents.
