NEW TAX GRAB: Liberals Refuse To Tell Canadians How Much Secret Gas Tax Will Gouge Us

Just like with the carbon tax, the arrogant Liberals seek to take more of our tax dollars without any openness and transparency.

With revelations emerging that the Liberals are planning to impose a secret fuel tax on Canadians, the Trudeau government is refusing to say how much the tax will cost Canadians.

In a press conference to try and counter the damaging revelations, the Liberals tried to deflect and claim it’s not a tax.

Yet, as noted by the CP, the Liberals are refusing to say what it will cost Canadians:

“However, Fraser would not say how much the new standard might affect prices at the pumps.”

Additionally, “In April, the Canadian Chamber of Commerce said that a federal carbon price and a clean-fuels standard amounted to “double-dipping” by charging businesses twice for every tonne of emissions. The chamber estimated that by 2025, the clean-fuel standard would add 1.5 cents to a litre of gasoline and 3.7 cents for a litre of diesel. In a cost-benefit analysis released by Environment Canada in February, the department acknowledged the costs of implementing the standard would likely be passed on to consumers, households and industrial users. But the analysis did not suggest what that cost would be.”

By refusing to acknowledge the reality that this is clearly a new tax on fuel that will hit Canadian families and consumers who are already struggling, the Liberals are once again lying to the Canadian People.

On Twitter, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer slammed the Liberals for refusing to be honest about the tax:

“If he’s re-elected in October, Justin Trudeau will raise your taxes again. He needs to come clean with Canadians and be honest about how much his #SecretFuelTax will cost you.”

Canadians are already overtaxed, and a new fuel tax will only make things worse. In fact, considering that a recent study showed the real inflation rate for many Canadians was closer to 10% than the 2% figure reported by the government, and considering that the inflation rate increase is largely driven by rising gas prices, then the new secret gas taxes is about the worst thing the government could be inflicting on us.

And what about a gender-based analysis on the impact of this new tax?

Somehow no matter how much money the federal liberals take from us it just never enough , why ? Is it because Justin and his inept , financially irresponsible government is simply overspending ?? My guess is these elitist’s are simply , simple minded and do not understand where the monies come from . Time for a reality check , a change of governance , and possibly a separate Western Canada , which might not be all that bad after living under a socialist liberal who is taxing Canadians into hardship and economic receivership that is done so on purpose… Read more »

Even with yet another tax on Canadians, it will not be enough, as too many more of our businesses will shut down, too many Canadians will lose their jobs and then there will not be enough taxes paid still, for this corrupt puppet government. All the socialist things that Canada has now, will be costing too much more so property and business taxes will need to increase as hospitals police stations and their needed fleets of vehicles, prisons, fire stations, government parks, all community buildings, libraries, town halls snow and road equipment garbage trucks etc., need to heat, and keep… Read more »

Trudeau, first likes to wow you with his charm and promises , while actually misleading everyone, even his closest Liberals. This is all about his narcissism and his need to be in control. while manipulating people, especially environmentalists and NGOs. This is why Trudeau, in the beginning was all about openness, transparency,NOT, weird socks and selfies.All to deceive the public , so he could bring in a new revenue stream. The carbon tax. The same goes for this new fuel standards tax, save the planet and blame any failures and harm in our economy on those who don’t believe in… Read more »
