POLL: Majority Of Canadians Oppose The Trudeau Carbon Tax

The majority also support Doug Ford’s decision to scrap cap & trade.

A new survey by Angus Reid shows the majority of Canadians oppose Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax, and feel the provinces should have jurisdiction over whether carbon taxes are imposed or not.

Here are some of the key numbers:

55% of Canadians oppose Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax, while 45% support it. That support has fallen from 56% in April of 2015.

Overall, 53% support having a provincial cap & trade system, while 47% oppose it. However, that support has fallen dramatically from spring of 2015, when 74% of Canadians supported their province having such a system.

Interestingly, those numbers flip when asked whether there is support for a provincial carbon tax. In that case, 53% oppose it, while 47% support it.

The survey shows 51% of Canadians support Doug Ford’s move to end the cap & trade system, while 49% oppose it. Support for Ford’s move is stronger in the province he leads, with 55% of Ontarians in favour of his move.

There is overwhelming national support for Saskatchewan’s decision to fight Trudeau’s carbon tax in court. 72% of Canadians approve of it, while just 28% oppose it. In Saskatchewan, support for the court fight is nearly unanimous, with 88% of Saskatchewan residents backing Scott Moe vs Trudeau.

64% of Canadians say the provinces “should have the final say on carbon pricing,” while just 36% want the federal government to have the power.

These results clearly show that the Trudeau Liberals have no mandate to impose their carbon tax on Canadians. Across the country, people are waking up to the fraudulent nature of the federal government’s carbon tax scheme.

It is just a guilt tax making economic martyrs of us all. Money destined for general revenue shows why directed taxation is the way things must be. I have news for Canadians in support of this tax. Our climate has always changed and no amount of taxation will stop it from doing so. So pony up for this tax so you won’t ever have to think for yourself and drain your guilt. Some deserve to be penniless while yet others do not deserve their wealth. That is the climate of our times. To make sonny’s ways into sunny days is… Read more »

It is becoming apparent how their next election is going to play out, if it is not already foreign rigged, they are using Butts plan again like they did in Ontario, for three elections, and so far unfortunately the Conservatives seem to be falling into the same trap used in Ontario, making them appear weak and demonized but just as socialist as the Lieberals/NDP are. ( especially with the owned media on their side) Morneau states he realizes he must change his next budget, to make us more inviting to businesses coming here. (feminist ones of course) The phony carbon… Read more »

British Columbians are poised and waiting for our fearless NDP Leader to speak about this matter, we would like to join the cause but so far, nothing.

I would like to see the reasons given behind the alleged support for a carbon tax, find it hard to believe that 45% support it. I wonder how the questions were phrased and where the polling took place. Yes, there are some green zealots who believe the world would be a better place without automobiles, but those would be on the fringe politically speaking, so what reasons do the rest of the positive voters have? Perhaps a high percentage polled realize the government with it’s profligate spending , needs the income, but what of the rest, did they just tell… Read more »

“It seems the most logical thing in the world is to believe that the natural resources of the Earth, upon which the human race depends for food, clothing and shelter, should be owned collectively by the race instead of being the private property of a few social parasites.” ~ Ralph Chaplin To that I would add that any development which we are dependent upon in the modern world, such as oil, gas, electricity and the like should not be a further burden upon the consumer in the form of tax-terrorism. It should be accepted simply as a necessity and until… Read more »

A few quotes by – William Lyon Mackenzie King -Usury once in control will wreck the nation. -Far more has been accomplished for the welfare and progress of mankind by preventing bad actions than by doing good ones. -Government, in the last analysis, is organized opinion. Where there is little or no public opinion, there is likely to be bad government. -I believed the people had a true instinct in most matters of government when left alone. That they were not swayed, as specially favoured individuals were, by personal interest, but rather by a sense of what best served the… Read more »
