#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.

#57 MP Raises, Toronto Park Boondoggle, and Doug Ford Breaks Per Vote Promise

News at the Top – MPs Raise Their Own Pay Federal politicians have a pretty bad April fools joke up their sleeves. Every MP is scheduled to get an extra $3,000 going straight from taxpayers’ pockets as of Apr. 1, 2021. Our Quebec Director Renaud Brossard breaks down the ridiculous raise with our Alberta Director Franco Terrazzano. SIGN the PETITION: https://www.taxpayer.com/petitions/mps-need-to-cut-their-own-pay Deep Dive – Toronto Park Boondoggle Toronto Mayor John Tory wants everyone in Canada to pay for a $3.8-billion vanity park over rail lines in the city’s downtown. Don’t live in Toronto? Doesn’t matter.  Taxpayers from coast to coast will be stuck paying for the literal pie-in-the-sky project, if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau approves the mayor’s plan.  Our Ontario Director Jasmine Moulton lays out the situation for Renaud.

Jasmine stays on to talk about the broken promise with our B.C. Director Kris Sims, whose own province has a painful history with per-vote subsidies.
