Liberal carbon tax narrative is a lie

The light is once again shining on the dishonesty of this Liberal government, proving that the Liberals’ unpopular carbon tax narrative has been a lie.

We are all familiar with their attempt to leave the impression that carbon taxes will somehow be “revenue neutral” and will cost no one anything. It’s not true.

In late 2015, the Environment Department told the Minister that, to be effective, the Liberal carbon taxes will have to be 30 times higher than what they have been telling the public.

A common carbon tax trick is to start out small, and then increase the tax as time goes by. The Liberals’ initial tax of 10 dollars per tonne is to rise to $50. What they didn’t tell Canadians is that Environment Canada says that the tax will need to skyrocket to 300 dollars per tonne.

Carbon taxes will make life so expensive that you will be forced to change your lifestyle and to live as the government wants you to. The government gets massive amounts of your money while they are extinguishing your freedoms. Is there anything more typically Liberal than that?
