   Toronto Sun:  But here, for me, is the real kicker: Approximately one-third of all U.S. coal exports go through Vancouver’s Westshore Terminals and not one lump of it is subjected to federal or B.C. carbon tax. 
   Coal is dirtier than oil, even oilsands oil. Burning it produces more pollution and more carbon emissions, especially in less-sophisticated overseas power plants. Yet there is B.C. Premier John Horgan, in the name of climate change, attempting to block his neighbouring province, Alberta, from building a pipeline to the West Coast. Meanwhile, he is welcoming tens of millions of tonnes of the global-warming-est coal around to slip in his province’s backdoor and out through the Port of Vancouver.
  Then there is our sanctimonious P.M., who is about to beggar Canada with a massive federal carbon tax — again in the name of saving the planet — and yet he permits million and millions of tonnes of coal to pass through Canada every year without charging a penny of his Earth-saving tax.
