The majority also support Doug Ford’s decision to scrap cap & trade.
A new survey by Angus Reid shows the majority of Canadians oppose Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax, and feel the provinces should have jurisdiction over whether carbon taxes are imposed or not.
Here are some of the key numbers:
55% of Canadians oppose Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax, while 45% support it. That support has fallen from 56% in April of 2015.
Overall, 53% support having a provincial cap & trade system, while 47% oppose it. However, that support has fallen dramatically from spring of 2015, when 74% of Canadians supported their province having such a system.
Interestingly, those numbers flip when asked whether there is support for a provincial carbon tax. In that case, 53% oppose it, while 47% support it.
The survey shows 51% of Canadians support Doug Ford’s move to end the cap & trade system, while 49% oppose it. Support for Ford’s move is stronger in the province he leads, with 55% of Ontarians in favour of his move.
There is overwhelming national support for Saskatchewan’s decision to fight Trudeau’s carbon tax in court. 72% of Canadians approve of it, while just 28% oppose it. In Saskatchewan, support for the court fight is nearly unanimous, with 88% of Saskatchewan residents backing Scott Moe vs Trudeau.
64% of Canadians say the provinces “should have the final say on carbon pricing,” while just 36% want the federal government to have the power.
These results clearly show that the Trudeau Liberals have no mandate to impose their carbon tax on Canadians. Across the country, people are waking up to the fraudulent nature of the federal government’s carbon tax scheme.
