Lib­er­als Must End their Car­bon Tax Cover-Up

The Miracle - - Editorial -

By: The Hon. Erin O’Toole, MP Durham Justin Trudeau is try­ing to ram through his car­bon tax, which will raise the price of home heat-

ing, elec­tric­ity and gro­ceries, but he has failed to tell Cana­di­ans how much this tax hike will cost. Over the last two years, Con­ser­va­tives have asked the govern­ment dozens of times to tell us how much a mid­dle-class fam­ily will pay in new taxes and each time the Lib­er­als have refused to tell Cana­di­ans.The Lib­er­als ad­mit that gaso­line prices will go up by at least 11 a litre and that the cost of heat­ing one’s home will in­crease by over 200. How­ever, they will not tell us the over­all cost to an av­er­age Cana­dian fam­ily, be­cause they do not want peo­ple to know

what this scheme will cost.The Par­lia­men­tary Bud­get Of­fi­cer re­leased a new re­port re­cently which found that the Lib­eral car­bon tax will take 10 bil­lion out of the Cana­dian econ­omy by 2022, while other es­ti­mates ar­gue the cost could be as much as 35 bil­lion per year. This will hurt jobs, work­ers and their fam­i­lies. An­drew Scheer’s Con­ser­va­tives un­der­stand that you can­not tax your way to a cleaner en­vi­ron­ment. We will con­tinue to fight for lower taxes and we will con­tinue to call on the Lib­er­als to end their car­bon tax cover-up
