Announcing he will do “whatever it takes”, Doug Ford is taking a stronger stance against the Carbon Tax!
During an interview at the Manning Conference, Ford states that he is willing to work with provincial leaders to fight the Carbon tax. And considering how provinces like Saskatchewan and Alberta disapprove of the Tax, Ford is now in a position to potentially form an alliance against Justin Trudeau’s Liberals. Now that would be pretty sweet wouldn’t it?
In 2016, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a campaign promise to introduce a national price on carbon, beginning at $10 per tonne in 2018, and increasing to $50 per tonne by 2022, and if provinces don’t meet federal expectations, Ottawa will impose a minimum price of $20 per tonne starting on Jan. 1, 2019.
What it will cost you.
It is estimated that the average two-parent family with two children living in Alberta will pay another $67.50 for home-heating and natural gas, and another $100 to put gas in thee tank, and about $70 to $100 more for everything else!
Doug Ford has certainly been an open critic of the Carbon Tax since day one, but with a provincial coalition at his side he could definitely mount a substantial front against the Trudeau Carbon tax. This could offer Canadians a new opportunity to push for a reform or even scrap it all together!
The Trudeau government has been ruthless in terms of implementing more regulations and pushing higher taxes, and Canada could sure use more leaders like Doug Ford to help us fight back!
