Federal: No Federal Carbon Tax

To Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna:

Your government’s plan to impose a “pan-Canadian carbon framework” – a carbon tax - on any province that refuses to do so itself will be an unfair hit to Canadian families, businesses and rural communities.

With potential costs of up to $2,569 per year for the average Canadian family by 2022, the carbon tax will also increase the price of food and clothing, and will mean lost jobs and struggling or bankrupt businesses.

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

Our economy is fragile and the last thing it needs is yet another tax.

We the undersigned call on the Government of Canada to scrap the federal 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.
