NDP candidate Joel Harden – who demonized Canadians that oppose making Ontario a “sanctuary province,” – has called for an ever-escalating carbon tax that would reach $150/tonne. That would be the highest carbon tax on earth.
The Ontario NDP’s candidate problems continue to worsen.
The Ontario PCs have revealed that NDP candidate Joel Harden is calling for Ontario to have the highest carbon tax on earth.
An NDP star candidate is an advocate for a $150/tonne carbon tax. That would be the highest carbon tax in the world, and cost you an extra 35 cents a litre at the pumps #onpoli #ONelxn #ONdebate pic.twitter.com/bAeZk2KxHt

According to PC candidate Stephen Lecce who brought attention to Harden’s radical views,“Joel Harden is openly crusading for a carbon tax that will increase gas taxes by 35 cents per litre,” said Lecce. “This will add $4,100 in new costs to a family with two cars.”
The PCs say “Harden’s carbon tax advocacy is the latest in a long series of exposures about NDP candidates that have included incidents of sharing Nazi memes online, accusing Canadian soldiers of committing war crimes, and advocating violence and property destruction to achieve their economic ends.”
“This is the pattern we see with Horwath,” added Lecce. “When NDP candidates slander our men and women in uniform — she does nothing. When NDP candidates share Nazi memes online — she does nothing. And now, when a star NDP candidate openly disagrees with the NDP’s public platform and calls for a 35 cents per litre carbon tax — she does nothing.”
With Ontarians already struggling to make ends meet, the radical NDP agenda would rip even more money out of taxpayers pockets, making life more expensive than ever before.
That’s why Andrea Horwath’s refusal to distance herself from radical candidates is so disturbing. If she gained power, her moderate image would quickly fade away, and middle class and working class people would be crushed under an insane tax burden.
