Continuous tax increases and an endlessly rising cost-of-living is inevitable unless the Trudeau Liberals are defeated in 2019.
The Trudeau government plans to keep increasing the carbon tax beyond 2022 if they remain in power.
That’s according to federal government documents, first shared by the United Conservative Party of Alberta.
As noted by the UPC, “A recently revealed federal Department of Finance memo regarding the the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate states that “the overall approach is to be reviewed by 2022 (referred to as the ‘five-year review’) to confirm the path forward, including continued increases in stringency in future years…” (pg 3). ‘Stringency’ is clearly tied to price, and suggests further carbon tax increases are on the horizon for Albertans.”
Those tax increases will hit all Canadians, showing that the Trudeau government has an insatiable appetite for taking money out of our pockets.
This comes at a time when household debt has hit record levels, and a majority of Canadians are either falling behind monthly on debts and bills, or are just barely keeping their heads above water.
Clearly, the Trudeau government doesn’t care about the struggles facing Canadians. They just want to take the money.
It also makes the choice in the next election very clear.
Scheer and the Conservatives may not be perfect – no leader or party is – but at least they won’t be hitting Canadians with endless tax increases every single year for as far as the eye can see.
It’s a big contrast, and it will impact our own financial futures and the future of the country.
If Trudeau is re-elected, the government will get bigger and bigger, while more money is taken from us, making Canadians poorer and poorer.
The Canadian people deserve far better.
