  Jason Kenney: Doug Ford Will Be 'Ally' In Fight Against Trudeau's Carbon Tax Jason Kenney: Doug Ford Will Be 'Ally' In Fight Against Trudeau's Carbon TaxThe leader of Alberta's United Conservative Party released a statement Thursday lauding Ford's victory in the Ontario election, setting up a fight with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the federal government's plan to impose a national price on carbon pollution next year.

OTTAWA - The Conservatives say they will force the House of Commons to sit all night tonight if the government doesn't agree to produce an analysis of how much its carbon price is going to cost Canadian families.

Finance critic Pierre Poilievre says it's his goal to make the government feel "as uncomfortable as possible."

With the Conservatives feeling emboldened by the Ontario election win for Doug Ford, who campaigned on a promise to get rid of that province's cap-and-trade system, Poilievre is tabling a motion demanding the Liberals produce documents on the cost by June 22.

The motion comes after weeks of political pressure from Poilievre and other Conservatives, who were given documents through the Access to Information Act that referenced such an analysis but blacked out the details.

Marathon voting session stalls pot bill

  Marathon voting session stalls pot bill OTTAWA - All work in the House of Commons has been put off until next week thanks to an all-night voting session that carried over into this morning. The Conservatives forced the marathon of votes as a procedural stalling tactic to draw attention to their calls for Trudeau government to disclose how much its carbon price will cost Canadians. MPs began voting on more than 200 spending measures lined up by the Conservatives at 10:30 p.m. Thursday and continued throughout the night and into the morning, ending just after 10 a.m.

The Liberals are requiring every province to have a price on carbon of $20 per tonne by next year, rising to $50 per tonne by 2022. Legislation to establish a federal carbon price that will be imposed on provinces that don't comply is part of the spring budget implementation bill.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has argued the costs to families will change, depending on how provinces decide to use revenues from the carbon tax — but she hasn't yet explicitly said how Ottawa will return the revenues to people who live in a province where Ottawa imposes its price.

"We will make the government as uncomfortable as possible until they tell the truth," Poilievre said.

The Conservatives say the people of Ontario rejected the idea of a carbon tax when they elected Ford last week, although the Liberals counter that a majority of Ontario residents actually voted for one of the two parties that support carbon pricing.

Poilievre says if the Liberals believe their carbon price policy is legitimate they should show the costs and defend them.

And he says they can vote for his motion without backing away from their policy.

Late-Night TV's Comedy King Is Not Who You Think .
For late-night shows, television is only part of the equation. The battle for eyeballs and cachet is increasingly shifting to online, where jokes and bits are viewed millions of times. So, according to the new math, who is today's talk show king? Hint: it's not Colbert.In fact, for late-night shows, TV is practically becoming irrelevant.

"So we might as well figure it out.
