Ford Fights Back: Repeats Warning Of “Carbon Tax Recession”

“The price will be paid by Ontarians,” said Ford.

In the wake of his comments warning that the Trudeau carbon tax could plunge Canada into a recession, Ontario Premier Doug Ford was criticized by some leftist economists and elites.

However, many of the same people attacking Ford are the ones who want to see Canadian taxpayers gouged with an ever-expanding carbon tax, and are willing to say anything to justify the tax grab.

And Ford isn’t backing down.

On Twitter, he fought back and repeated his warning:

“It’s hard to believe economists with theories that making everything more expensive is a good idea. The threat of a carbon tax recession is real. The cost of goods that are made, farmed + transported in Ontario will go up with a carbon tax. The price will be paid by Ontarians.”

Ford is right to be warning Canadians, and there are more and more signs of Canada’s economic fragility and weakness.

With Canadians already facing a massive household debt burden, with the economy slowing, and with wage growth falling, a carbon tax is the last thing our vulnerable economy needs.
