Interesting campaign tactic…
During a recent candidate debate on the Prime Asia program, Liberal MP Ramesh Sangha unveiled a unique tactic for trying to evade voter anger over the unpopular carbon tax:
Deny the tax exists.
Sangha outright claimed “There’s no carbon tax.”
You can watch it below:
“Great news everyone: Liberal MP announces that “there is no carbon tax”! Can someone please tell my home heating bill that?”

After people laughed at him, Sangha doubled down:
“I’m told it’s a tax. Tax. Where is the tax? Who’s paying the tax? Anybody can tell me, who is paying the tax on the carbon?”
Conservative candidate Pawanjit Gosal aptly responded, saying “Every Canadian is paying.”
Sangha’s hilariously bad attempt to pretend the carbon tax doesn’t exist is a sign that the Liberals are having trouble selling it, and are hearing at the doors that people are fed up with paying more and more taxes.
And just think, if the Liberals are willing to try lying about something so obvious, what else are they lying about?
