Hey Dalton... bite me

Don't know if most folks are aware of it... but the McSlippery Liberals have done away with the 20 year "rolling" exemption on their Drive Clean pogrom (and no, that's not a spelling mistake).

Oddly enough, it doesn't impact anybody who has an 88 or earlier fire-breathin' big block muscle car... just not so good for the rest of us who don't go out and buy a new sled every few years.

Anyway, had a few tense moments when the N-Mobile (my trusty grandfather of an SUV) didn't get through an initial test.

Happily, after a few not so cheap tweaks and a new O2 sensor... we sneaked through once again.

Funny how the bureacrats chose to penalise folks who actually reduce Ontario's overall energy footprint by reducing conspicuous consumption. I mean, whaddaya figure all those 24 hour auto plants and their subsidiary industries contribute to our pollution problems?

Wait a minute... aren't those the guys getting hundreds of millions of McSlippery taxpayer bucks on a regular timetable?

Hey Peace Moonbeam... stop screamin'... I'm just askin'.
