At the Conservative Leader's Wednesday scrum, while referencing policies to deal with the climate crisis, he claimed, "I've never known a problem to be solved by a new tax."

Was he kidding? Didn't sound like it. And as could be imagined, the Twittersphere lit up with scornful jabs. How about the Nazis, many reminded him? A bit of a problem, he might agree. And didn't wartime taxes provide for a strong military? Or would Mr. Scheer have preferred musket-bearing citizen militias?

How about the country's social programs? And in his own case, incensed respondents noted, what is it that solves Mr. Scheer's problem of making a living as a career politician? His handsome salary and all his perks are courtesy of the taxpayer.
