Canadian Conservative MP Candice Bergen wrote today,
“Earlier this year, I sent a letter to every household in my riding asking them to share their thoughts with me about the Liberal’s Carbon Tax. I received over 2,300 responses back, 96% saying they disagree. A carbon tax would do virtually nothing to help the environment, and would only make life more difficult for everyday Canadian families.”
This smells so familiar. People clearly seeing these taxes for what they are. All pain for no gain. We need not go back very far when Canadian Conservative politician Pierre Poilievre said that Canadian tomato farmers were already feeling the pinch of uncompetitive regulation with regards environmental taxation. It was revealed that the increase in Mexican tomato exports to Canada were having a bigger impact on CO2 emissions than Trudeau’s proposals to halt them.
