Trudeau’s carbon price last thing Ontario needs

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently announced all provinces must soon adopt a “price on carbon” of $50 per tonne or else face a carbon tax imposed by the federal government.

This could mean yet another tax hike for Ontario families, who already pay 42.5% of their average income in taxes and have been hit hard by recent tax increases at both the provincial and federal level.

It’s the last thing Ontarians need.

    Selfie stick doesn’t care because he’ll never pay this tax.

    Further i find this tax to be unconstitutional because it interfers with the provinces right to set their own industrial policy as well as unreasonably limiting property rights. It’s not feds job to restrict snow blowers and use of private property.

    • It’s a money grab, nothing less, Liberal party members will be lining their pockets in Ontario.

        Ok let’s embarass them to the point that the bad publicity causes them to permanently back off. I think it’s time to play our own version of Wikileaks. That’ll put them in line no matter how much the bootlicking lapdogs in the media try to bury the bones

          I say let them burn the country to the ground. You have to destroy before you can rebuild. Lets default on our debt, because when that happens there will not be credit any more. Let them destroy the economy and see how much revenue they collect when no one has a job and no business makes any profit. They won’t learn until we are like Venezuela, and when we get that bad we can start shooting them.

            I just want Western separation.

    Carbon pricing and fighting global warming are essential to transfer money from oppressive western countries like Canada to the countries we oppress through our existence to poor third world countries like Zimbabwe.

    We will not have an equitable world where all are equal until we all fall under the laws of the United Nations instead of our euro-centric cis-gendered judeo-christian hegemonic patriarch countries.

    The Cons set many taxes before as well , Brian Mulruney set the GST that’s a tax that hurts companies and families and the Liberals are setting more taxes , we need a third political party that will help the country in the right way of success.

      • Maurixio Garciasanchez

        You right miss politicians always make a 1000 promises and deliver almost nothing once they get elected.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        The GST was necessary.

        • mauser 98

          OK…Cretin promised to scrap GST 25+ times.
          .he lied for the entire election

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I know he did.
            He even got Sheila Copps to take the ‘fall’ for it.
            Remember when Trudeau campaigned against wage and price controls?

          • mauser 98

            please don’t remind me of Copps .. i grew up with that goddamnbitch

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Holy smokes!
            I was lucky, I got to go to high school with Sterling Lyon’s daughter.

          • mauser 98

            damn right you were … Copps the most repugnant goddamnbitch ever

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Close second is our first female ‘PM’.

          • mauser 98

            Wynne is No.10
            Copps takes the first 9 places

      The gst replaced a hidden 13% manufacturers tax. The liberals aren’t proposing to replace any taxes with their carbon tax.

  • Maggat

    Ontario, at this point I do not feel sorry for you. You and you alone voted in your pathetic provincial gov’t. With the majority of MPs you were influential in electing the shiny pony. “As ye sow, so shall ye reap”
    We have a “carbon tax” out here in B C, but, at least it is revenue neutral, or so we’re told.
    Canada really needs to down size gov’ts across the board and get OUT of our faces and daily lives.

    • canminuteman

      But people want them in their faces and in their daily lives. People want free stuff and make the assumption that someone else is paying for it. about 80 percent of provincial government spending is healthcare and education. Nobody, regardless of political strip, would advocate for reducing spending on health care and education. Without cutting that spending, there is no cutting provincial government spending.
