Show Notes

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is giving Quebec a special deal on the carbon tax. The math is

of gas in carbon taxes, while Quebecers pay 10 cents per litre. The solution is also simple:
Trudeau should scrap his carbon taxes and make life more affordable for all Canadians.
We break down everything you need to know about the carbon tax, including Quebec’s special
deal.
