VIDEO: Scheer & Poilievre Demand Trudeau End The “Carbon Tax Cover-Up”

“His own finance department calculated that the carbon tax will add 11 cents per litre to the price of gas,” said Scheer.

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre recently held a press conference to demand that Trudeau end the “carbon tax cover-up.”

The event was held outside of a gas station, as a way to bring attention to the impact the carbon tax is having on already sky-high gas prices, and how it will make things even worse.

In front of a sign saying “TRUDEAU TAXES DRIVERS,” Scheer and Poilievre demanded that Trudeau finally reveal what the carbon tax will cost Canadian families – something the government has been shamefully hiding from the Canadian people.

You can watch the press conference below:

Canada’s Conservatives will keep fighting for lower taxes and we’re demanding that Justin Trudeau end his #CarbonTaxCoverUp.

While not the most exciting event, Scheer and Poilievre’s press conference effectively got the message across: Justin Trudeau is making life more expensive for Canadians, and is refusing to tell Canadians the full cost of the carbon tax he’s forcing on us.

Especially considering that Trudeau promised the most “open and transparent” government of all time, his carbon tax cover-up is incredibly hypocritical and damaging to our country.

Do you think that Andrew Scheer realizes that, we do not have a Canadian government at present, just a group of rich foreign elitists calling themselves Lieberals/NDP, with their destructive fake divisive agendas. This carbon tax, like their other Lieberal agendas, eg. X children with no sex? our propaganda teaching too expensive school systems, where the children’s actual needed lessons to be educated are not being taught successfully and their marks are dropping, but they are being taught Lieberal/NDP propaganda, fake feminism, because this has changed through out history, real history is not being taught either, etc. What I would… Read more »

Nancy, you have summed it up nicely, I agree with you! Well Done!

He should have stood outside a gas station in Vancouver of Victoria. It’s over $1.50 a litre in Victoria and even higher in Vancouver. $1.28 a litre seems cheap, and a price we haven’t seen here for quite some time.

I am glad though that Scheer is bringing attention to this. I think the results of the Ontario election show millions of Canadians do NOT want the carbon tax.

How about Scheer and company repealing his support for the Paris Climate Accord (essentially denying the hoax of man-made climate change promoted by the socialists and globalists like the U.N. and George Soros) which the Liberals point to as the driver for the things they feel they are compelled to do? Buying into the hoax of man-made climate change makes one complicit as far as the consequences.

While I agree that the carbon tax should be repealed immediately — among some other very serious pieces of legislation, we all know by now that the ‘bulldozing’ tactic to get their way is the net result of any concerns of either the opposition or the public. However, I would strongly suggest that there are at least three pieces of legislation in the works that are of far greater importance and dangerous to our country than the carbon tax. There are Bills C-71, C-72, M-103 (there are a couple more that for the moment escape my thoughts) and the danger… Read more »
