MP Bar­low thinks the lat­est car­bon tax an­nounce­ment is wrong

Prairie Post (West Edition) - - Alberta -

Re­cently week, the Lib­er­als un­veiled what the op­po­si­tion Con­ser­va­tives are call­ing a job-killing car­bon tax scheme, forc­ing Cana­di­ans liv­ing in On­tario, Man­i­toba, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick to pay Trudeau’s car­bon tax.

John Bar­low, Mem­ber of Par­lia­ment for Foothills, was not im­pressed. He be­lieves “the car­bon tax scheme an­nounced by the Lib­er­als is an at­tempt to buy votes.

“It is Lib­eral math at its finest. A measly $12.50 a month won’t cover the hun­dreds of dol­lars more it costs Cana­di­ans to heat their homes, feed their fam­i­lies and fill their gas tanks,” ex­plained Bar­low in a state­ment. “It will make ev­ery­thing more ex­pen­sive, es­pe­cially for those fam­i­lies who can af­ford it the least. The Lib­er­als are also giv­ing a sweet­heart deal to the big­gest emit­ters, mean­ing the fi­nan­cial bur­den of the car­bon tax rests solely on the backs of hard-work­ing Cana­di­ans, our farm­ers and our small busi­nesses.

“The Con­ser­va­tives will fight for lower taxes and de­fend Cana­dian jobs, ev­ery­thing the Lib­eral car­bon tax threat­ens. We will re­peal the car­bon tax and it will not cost Cana­di­ans a nickel.”
