The tax grab will only get worse.
In a recent Question Period, the Trudeau Liberals were given four opportunities to say the carbon tax wouldn’t go over $50 a tonne.
Each time, they refused.
As a result, they’ve left the door open to even more massive increases to the hated carbon tax, further increasing the devastating impact of the tax on Canadians.
Pierre Poilievre pointed out that a government analysis ‘quietly’ released online shows that after the next federal election, the Trudeau Liberals plan to hike the carbon tax far above the $50 per tonne cost. One government briefing note said it could be up 600% higher.
A UN report which the Trudeau government has cited has even said the tax needs to be 100 times higher – which would absolutely destroy the entire Canadian economy and send our standard of living to that of a third world disaster country.
Polievre asked over and over whether the Liberals would increase the carbon tax above the stated figure. Over and over again, the Liberals refused to deny it.

This is yet another reason why the entire carbon tax needs to be totally scrapped. The Trudeau Liberals will never stop at the current tax grab, and will keep on taking more and more of our money if they remain in power.
