AB: Scrap the Alberta Carbon Tax


Click here for printable version.

To Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and Environment Minister Shannon Phillips:

Alberta’s new broad-based carbon tax is an unfair hit to Albertan families, businesses and rural communities.

With direct costs of $320 per year for the average Albertan family in 2016, rising to $900 per year by 2030, the carbon tax will also increase the price of food and clothing, and will mean lost investment in our province.

A federally imposed carbon price of $50/tonne would have an even larger impact, costing the average Canadian household $2,569 annually by 2022.

The carbon tax will hit rural Albertans particularly hard where driving is a necessity.

On top of tens of thousands of job losses as well as increases to taxes on income, business, gas, train fuel, large emissions, cigarettes, alcohol and craft beer, this expanded carbon tax is kicking Albertans when they’re down.

We the undersigned call on the Alberta government to scrap the carbon tax. 

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
