Justin Trudeau’s Carbon Tax Is A Huge Gift To Donald Trump

While Justin Trudeau acts like he’s fighting the US, the carbon tax he’s forcing on Canadians is a massive economic gift to our southern neighbour.

If a country deliberately introduced a policy that made doing business more and more expensive every year and pushed investment to their neighbour, that neighbour would be justified in seeing that policy as a massive gift.

And if that was happening, it would strain credibility to think that the leaders of the country imposing that costly policy were really trying to fight or compete with their neighbour – regardless of their rhetoric.

Instead, it would be pretty clear that they were giving that neighbour a huge gift, taking wealth from their own people and sending it the other country.

Well, that’s exactly what’s going on with Trudeau’s carbon tax.

The carbon tax rips money out of the pockets of Canadians by making everything more expensive. And that increased expense means that it’s far tougher to do business here. As a result investment falls and goes elsewhere. And since the massive US market – with lower business taxes and no carbon tax – is right next door, that’s where the investment and the jobs flows towards.

It was all easily predictable, because this is just basic economics. If you make it more expensive to invest in one place, investment won’t just magically disappear, it will just move.

And that’s what’s happening. Investments and job growth are surging in the United States, while Canada lost jobs for the past two months and has suffered a severe investment collapse ever since the Trudeau Liberals took power and moved towards imposing the carbon tax.

Numerous businesses in Canada have shifted investment and jobs to the US, and that will only continue as the carbon tax grows and grows year by year.

Trudeau gives a gift to Donald Trump

This means that – far from really confronting Donald Trump – Justin Trudeau is giving him a huge gift. Trudeau is making it far easier for the US to get investment and jobs from Canada.

What makes this even worse is that all it would take to reverse this damaging trend is for Trudeau to repeal the carbon tax. But he refuses to do so, giving Trump and the US a huge economic gift at the expense of Canadian taxpayers and Canadian businesses.

You`re so right, Spencer. The exodus ha already begun. The taxpayers will follow. Please expose LEADNOW, a radical left org that tried to stop Ford from winning. Thy had 900 volunteers call 96,000 people all over Ontario, to convince them not to vote for Ford. Thank God it backfired ! Problem is Trudeau gave them some of our taxdollar funding through the attestation, even tho they helped stop the pipeline. Also they get funding from George Soros. Go to leadnow.ca/campaigns. They are planning to keep hampering Fords progress with negative news etc. How can you expose them ? I don`t… Read more »

There is a really simple reason why Trudeau won’t cancel the carbon tax , its called pride. He sees himself as being superior to everyone else and thinks that what he says is the only option he should follow. Surely by now, his economic advisors, if he still has any of them left, would have told him it is better to lower taxes and allow businesses to do what they do best, create wealth jobs and prosperity. But that would mean cancelling the very thing that helped gain him the office of PM. So now with Trump imposing trade barriers… Read more »


As they say; once you collapse a country, the poor people left, will do anything for the rich, for just some food and a ? roof over their heads. The well off, will have left, along with their businesses, the rich will not want us, now very poor to be here, unless serving them, slavery. Trudeau and the LIEberal/NDP seem to be trying very hard to collapse us, They all were aware of how President Trump works, but they thought, cute little gender games, and the man made climate change money grabber or some other radical farce, and then getting… Read more »

It would make sound economic sense to not have a carbon tax if yoyr largest trading partner and ally does not have one. However, this is not about common sense or doing what is best for one’s country, but an ideological battle between a globalist like Trudeau who has declared Canada to be “the first post-national state”, and Trump, a patriot who is standing up for his country.
