Alberta United Conservative Premier Jason Kenney has repealed the carbon tax placed by his predecessors. It was a key election promise and he has vowed to challenge any attempt by Ottawa to force adoption of a federal carbon tax.
In Alberta, Jason Kenney of the United Conservatives gained 63 seats from 25 at the last election handing victory over incumbent Rachel Notley of the New Democrats which fell to 24 seats from 52.
In Ontario, Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservatives surged from 28 seats to 76. His main rival, incumbent Kathleen Wynne of the Liberals fell from 58 to 7. He also repealed the carbon tax soon after election.
Justin Trudeau is fighting a losing battle if he thinks a carbon tax will help his re-election.
People want jobs not useless taxes which achieve nothing.
