Watch: Morneau Refuses To Reveal What Carbon Tax Will Cost Average Canadian Family

What right does he have to impose a tax on Canadians when he won’t even say how much it will cost us?

The Parliamentary Budget Officer recently revealed that the carbon tax will cost the Canadian economy $10 billion due to lower GDP growth.

However, we still don’t know how much the carbon tax will cost the average Canadian family.

After all, in addition to the overall tax, it makes everything else more expensive, as producing products and transporting products now has a higher cost.

So, considering that Canadians are already cash-strapped, we need to know how much the economy-damaging carbon tax will take out of our pockets.

Apparently however, Bill Morneau doesn’t think we deserve to know that information.

When Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre demanded to know how much this will cost Canadians, Morneau repeatedly refused to answer the question, and condescendingly ‘pivoted’ to weak talking points.

Watch the video below:

How can we accept the government having the authority to impose a tax on us when they won’t even tell us what it costs?

And, considering all the previous deceptions from the Trudeau government, and the fact that the government keeps refusing to tell us the truth about the carbon tax, we can expect that the cost to our pocketbooks will be severe.

Those who are deflecting and giving non-answers should be charged with contempt of Parliament.

As was done to Harper should be done to Trudeau and the Liberals:

“It was also a motion that declared the government to be in contempt of Parliament for its refusal to share information that opposition members said they needed to properly assess legislation put before them.”

Let’s put it this way: the current carbon levy is 20% of our natural gas bill.

Getting rid of this cancer also known as the liberal government, starts with electing Doug Ford June 7, 2018. Vote these lying, thieving rats out.

If it were revenue neutral (which the provinces can if they wish choose to do) it would be $0 as those with a low carbon footprint would have a bigger tax cut than hike in carbon taxes. Now the problem is except under the government of Gordon Campbell and Christy Clark, it likely won’t be revenue neutral. Otherwise carbon taxes can work so long as they are a 100% revenue neutral. Rather than fighting it, those that are backstopped are just better to give full rebates to low income individuals, while drop income tax for middle and upper income individuals… Read more »

October 2019 the Canadian people, the poor little people, the racists, the Islamophobes will fire 184, the earrogant, race baiting fools and perhaps have something that looks like normal in our lives again.

Rich BOY Morneau can’t answer the question for two reasons… one is because he hasn’t a clue as to any kind of answer, the second is that he completely couldn’t give a sheet. He’s a rich BOY so it won’t affect him at all.
