Ecofiscal Commission Wants To Raise Carbon Tax By 400%

It just never stops.

Apparently, many Canadian elites think we still aren’t paying enough taxes.

And they’re seeking to use the carbon tax as the lever to raise our overall tax burden dramatically.

The Ecofiscal Commission, a ‘think tank’ that regularly pushes the agenda of the establishment, is calling for hiking the carbon tax by 400%.

“Commission chair Chris Ragan said hiking the carbon price $20 per year between 2022 and 2030, until it hits $210 per tonne, would get Canada to its targets under the Paris Agreement on cutting emissions. That would be on top of the $50-a-tonne price on carbon emissions that will be in place by 2022.

The federal price, in provinces where it applies, is at $20 per tonne now, and is going up $10 a year in each of the next three years.”

In addition to calling for the massive carbon tax increase, the Ecofiscal Commission is also pushing to have the carbon tax rebates go more towards corporate tax cuts and personal income tax cuts.

The issue there of course is that the carbon tax then becomes even more of a scheme to funnel money to well-connected corporations, and politicians can’t be trusted to actually give back an equal amount in tax cuts.

After all, Trudeau is already giving exemptions to some big companies, letting them pay only 10% of the full carbon tax rate, even as the tax is applied 100% on consumers.

This is has been the plan from the beginning. It’s the ‘foot in the door’ technique. They get people to accept a ‘small’ carbon tax, then once that happens they raise it over and over and over again until it’s another massive revenue stream for the central government, further hampering our economy, further hurting Canadian families, and taking more and more financial freedom away from the Canadian People.
