Once again, the Trudeau government shows contempt for democracy.
The Ontario PC Party led by Doug Ford was very clear in the election: They would repeal cap-and-trade and fight against the hated carbon tax.
Doug Ford repeated it over and over and over again, and all PC candidates ran on that idea.
Knowing this, the voters of Ontario gave the PCs a massive majority government, and a clear mandate to implement their Plan For The People – including scrapping the carbon tax.
But now, instead of listening to the will of Ontario voters, the Trudeau government is arrogantly planning to impose the carbon tax anyway.
As reported by the Toronto (Red) Star – who tried taking down Ford but failed miserably – Liberal parliamentary secretary to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna Jonathan Wilkinson “told the Star the government wants to work with the incoming Ford administration on carbon pricing. But if Ford scraps Ontario’s existing system, as promised, Ottawa is prepared to impose one. “We need to move forward, and the Government of Canada intends to move forward,” Wilkinson said.”
This is the height of arrogance and contempt for democracy.
Across the country, people have turned against the carbon tax. Polls showed nearly 75% of Ontarians view the carbon tax as nothing more than a cash-grab scam. Ontarians elected a government dedicated to opposing the carbon tax.
And yet, Justin Trudeau and Catherine McKenna think they know better than everyone else, and if people don’t like their carbon tax they’ll just force it on us all anyway.
That arrogance and condescending attitude from the Trudeau government is a big part of why people are realizing that the decimation of the Ontario Liberals needs to be repeated at the federal level.
