McKenna runs away from earlier promise to freeze the tax grab.
The Trudeau government is admitting that the carbon tax is going way up, with Catherine McKenna backing off an earlier promise to freeze the tax at $50 a tonne following 2022.
As noted by the Globe & Mail, “Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has backed off a pledge to freeze the carbon tax at $50 a tonne after 2022, saying a re-elected Liberal government would review the levy with provinces before deciding how to proceed. In June, Ms. McKenna said the Liberals planned not to increase the tax once it hit $50, which equates to roughly 11 cents a litre of gasoline.”
While the Liberals will try to weasel out of what this means, we have to consider it in context.
And that context is a government that repeatedly breaks their promises. So, if the Liberals are already backing off a promise not to raise the carbon tax, that’s an admission that the carbon tax will go way up after the election.
Also, consider the fact that the Liberals have totally ignored and even insulted provinces that oppose the carbon tax. So, if they’re claiming that they’ll ‘review the levy with provinces,’ that really means they’ll force a huge tax increase on the provinces.
Of course, that tax increase will really be paid for by Canadians, as the already-high cost of living surges even more. And this makes the importance of the election even clearer. If the Liberals get back into power, your taxes are going way up.
