Canadian taxpayers and businesses are under assault by new plans to implement carbon taxes. Our elected officials may try to dress it up as a 'regulation' or a 'cap-and-trade' system, but make no mistake this recent policy trend threatens to be one of the largest taxgrabs in Canadian history.
 
At the federal level, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has already annoucned his intentions to implement a carbon tax as soon as possible, and leading economists estimate that it will add billions of dollars to the cost of doing business in Canada. This is on top of increased costs for consumers for transportation, home heating fuel, and other utilities - costs that will hit rural Canadians and those on fixed incomes particularly hard. 
In Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne is trying to force an expensive carbon 'cap-and-trade' system on an unwilling populace. We already know that this tax will NOT be revenue neutral, and will drive jobs and economic opportunities out of the country. In other words, this government is once again hoping to balance the budget on the backs of hard-working taxpayers while putting the provincial economy at risk. 
 
Even in Alberta, Premier Notley has announced her intentions to implement a costly and damaging carbon tax as well as an emissions cap that will threaten Alberta's economy as well as Canada's energy sector. This is another mistake from an inexperienced government whose policies have already cost thousands of Albertan jobs. 
 
Of course, British Columbia has already implemented an expensive and complex system to regulate and tax carbon emissions. This has set a disastrous precedent for Canada's other cash-strapped provinces to follow, and we must reverse this trend before it is allowed to spread to other jurisdictions. 
WE the undersigned are determined not to see carbon taxes implemented in Canada at the federal or provincials levels. These expensive taxes will cost Canadian jobs and increase taxes for hard-working families.
