Trudeau tried bragging that 80% of Canada’s GDP was in provinces with a carbon tax – the night before Doug Ford won a massive landslide in Ontario, in part on a pledge to fight that very same carbon tax.
During a recent Question Period, Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre once again asked Justin Trudeau to answer what should be the easiest question in the world: How much will the carbon tax cost the average Canadian family?
It’s the kind of data that every government has, as it’s part of basic finance department calculations any time a new policy is introduced.
Yet, Trudeau has repeatedly refused to answer the question.
It’s a massive and disgraceful level of hypocrisy, considering the fact that Justin Trudeau ran on being the most “open and transparent” PM ever, yet refuses to share some of these most basic numbers with the Canadian people.
And yet, Trudeau did what he always does: Refuse to answer the question he was actually asked, and then blame Harper.
After getting his Harper blaming out of the way, Trudeau tried mentioning Ontario’s cap-and-trade program as something that backs up his carbon tax, saying that 80% of Canada’s economy is represented by a province that has a ‘price’ on carbon.
Hilariously, Trudeau said this on June 6th. On June 7th, the Ontario PCs – who pledged to scrap the cap-and-trade program and fight the carbon tax in court – won a massive majority government.
Canadians are turning against the carbon tax, yet Trudeau arrogantly refuses to listen. Watch the full exchange below:
