In Speech, Scheer Rips Trudeau For Tax Hikes, Deficits, & Attack On Free Expression

Also pledges to introduce “Act To Repeal The Carbon Tax.”

Conservative leader Andrew Scheer continues to expand on the key themes he will bring up in the upcoming election.

During a recent speech in B.C., Scheer ripped into Trudeau for attacking freedom of speech, and promised to repeal the carbon tax as his first move in office.

As reported by BC Local News, Scheer said “Remember their tax hikes they promised this summer where they demonized hardworking entrepreneurs? They demonized and accused them of being ‘tax cheats’ and manipulating the system and trying to take advantage of something to get something they didn’t earn.”

Scheer criticized the mounting debt that will hurt the next generation, saying “I won’t let Justin Trudeau do to my five kids the same thing that his father did to my generation.”

Scheer also promised the the first piece of legislation he would introduce would be a repeal of Trudeau’s unpopular carbon tax:

“I’m here to tell you the same thing I’ve said in many, many speeches all across the country: the first piece of legislation in a majority conservative government in 2019 will be entitled ‘An Act to Repeal the Carbon Tax.’”

The report also notes that Scheer ripped Trudeau for attacking freedom of speech and going against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms:

“When [Trudeau] says that ‘diversity is our strength,’ I guess he doesn’t mean diversity of views, diversity of opinions, or diversity of beliefs. Section 2 of the Charter says that we all have that right, and by forcing groups and individuals to sign on to a personal attestation, he is running rough-shot over our fundamental Charter rights. And Conservatives won’t let him get away with it.”

Responding to growing concerns about what many are calling Trudeau Liberal’s backdoor gun-registry Bill C-71, Scheer noted that the bill includes the words ‘registrar’ and ‘registration’ over 25 times, yet it doesn’t mention ‘gangs,’ ‘trafficking in firearms,’ or ‘criminal organizations.’ Seems pretty clear what the Liberals are actually trying to do.

Scheer’s speech shows a commitment to provide a clear contrast with Trudeau, offering a smaller-government, pro-freedom agenda to counter Trudeau’s big-government, increasingly authoritarian attitude.
