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.
