#64 O’Toole Breaks Carbon Tax Promise, Budget a Debt-Fueled Spending Binge, Bills Pile Up After Cancelled Barbados Trip

News at the Top – O’Toole Breaks Carbon Tax Promise Conservative Party of Canada Leader Erin O’Toole has announced his own federal carbon tax. This is the same Erin O’Toole that when running for leader of the CPC, signed the Canadian Taxpayers Federation pledge to scrap the Trudeau carbon tax and not impose a national carbon tax of his own. If he goes through with this carbon tax, he will be breaking a huge promise he made to millions of Canadians.

#120 Quebec’s Special Deal on Carbon Tax

There’s a fundamental unfairness about the federal carbon tax: Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is requiring taxpayers in other provinces to pay a higher carbon tax than in Quebec. Trudeau’s special deal for Quebec shows the carbon tax was always about politics, not the environment. READ MORE HERE: https://torontosun.com/opinion/columnists/gunter-quebec-gets-deal-on-carbon-tax-while-rest-of-canada-pays?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1670103043   Trudeau Balloons His Buyback Boondoggle Trudeau is going after more law-abiding Canadians. He is trying to ban thousands of additional long guns. The original gun ban and buyback was already ineffective and expensive. This could cost taxpayers another $1 billion. And it won’t improve safety. READ MORE HERE: https://nationalpost.com/news/expanded-liberal-gun-ban-could-cost-taxpayers-another-billion-dollars-says-criminologist     Wait, a Politician Wants Less Pay? British Columbia MLA Todd Stone put forward a private member’s bill to freeze politician pay. It would’ve killed the $10,000-pay raises for politicians. Too bad the rest of his colleagues couldn’t keep their snouts out of the trough. The B.C. government refused to debate Stone’s bill.
