Carbon tax election

March 21, 2024

On April 1st, Justin Trudeau is raising the taxes of Canadians again, increasing his carbon tax by 23 percent. 70 percent of Canadians, and 70 percent of provincial premiers, including the Liberal Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador and Liberal parties in Ontario, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick, oppose Trudeau’s tax hikes. But Justin Trudeau and his NDP coalition partners won’t listen.

That’s why tomorrow, Conservatives will call a vote of non-confidence in Trudeau’s Liberal Government so Canadians can vote in a Carbon Tax Election.

Liberal and NDP MPs had the opportunity today to provide Canadians with some relief, but instead voted to make them pay even more in taxes. They did this in spite of the Parliamentary Budget Officer confirming that Trudeau’s carbon tax will cost families $911 in Alberta, $525 in Saskatchewan, $502 in Manitoba, $627 in Ontario $627, $537 in Nova Scotia, $550 in Prince Edward Island and $377 in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Trudeau’s inflationary spending and taxes have taken more and more money out of Canadians’ pockets, leaving a record number of people using food banks, while families must choose between heating their home or filling up their car.

Justin Trudeau is not worth the cost, and Canadians have lost faith in the Trudeau Government. Only Common Sense Conservatives are listening. If Trudeau won’t spike the hike on April 1st then it’s time to put the question to Canadians in a Carbon Tax Election where Canadians can vote to axe the tax on everything, for everyone.
