Clement Says Carbon Tax Is Bad For Parry Sound Muskoka

MP Tony Clement says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced last week that he will be forcing residents of Parry Sound-Muskoka to pay his carbon tax, forcing costs to go up on heating homes, feeding families, running businesses and filling gas tanks,” he said.

Clement said that “While Justin Trudeau allows large polluters off the hook with exemptions, low income earners and fixed income seniors are left to pick up the cost. The rebates being promised won’t cover the added costs to Canadians, which will only increase with the passing years,” he said. 

Unless large and developing countries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, global emissions will not decrease and Clement says that  Justin Trudeau’s carbon tax will not save the environment, it will only hurt Canada’s economy and Canadian families.

The Prime Minister continues to withhold documents that would show the true cost of his carbon tax but Canadians are supposed to believe his rebates will cover it all. It`s a shell game meant to fill Liberal coffers, plain and simple,” he said.
