“A carbon tax will be a total economic disaster,” said Ford.
With fears of economic damage from the carbon tax spreading throughout the country, Ontario Premier Doug Ford is warning that the Trudeau government could be pushing Canada towards a recession.
Speaking to the Economic Club of Canada, Ford slammed the carbon tax:
“I’m here today to ring the warning bell that the risk of a carbon tax recession is very, very real,” said Ford.
He also warned of serious consequences for the entire country:
“A carbon tax will be a total economic disaster, not only for our province but for our entire country. There are already economic warning signs on the horizon.”
Ford’s warnings are important to heed, as the risk is very real.
Canada is already suffering from an investment collapsing, slowing wage growth, a loss of confidence among businesses and consumers, and massive household debt levels. The economy is already slowing, and a massive (and ever-increasing) carbon tax could tip the country into recession and severe economic crisis.
Of course, the Trudeau Liberals will ignore these warnings and keep pushing the destructive tax on Canadians. That means the only way to protect the Canadian People from economic damage is to ensure that the Trudeau government loses power.
