Inflationary carbon tax is being applied politically

Last fall, the Liberals announced three changes to the carbon tax aimed at Atlantic Canadians:

  • a three year suspension of the carbon tax on home heating oil,
  • a 10% increase to the rural rebate,
  • and the creation of a program that will reward Canadians who sign up to switch from home heating oil to a heat pump.

Despite this announcement, Canadians will still pay Trudeau’s carbon tax on gas, heat and groceries.

The Liberal Government is offering a temporary pause to the tax on home heating oil that won’t help 97% of Canadians.

The common sense Conservative promise is simple. No gimmicks. No temporary measures. Axe the inflationary carbon taxes for good and bring home lower prices.
