Atlantic Premiers join climate agenda push back
The Premiers must think Trudeau is wrong when it comes to his climate agenda’s impact on Canadians’ bank accounts.

All four Atlantic province Premiers have denounced the Trudeau Liberals’ climate agenda, saying that the timeline is too fast, taxes are too high, and inflation is out of control.

Atlantic Premiers join climate agenda push back

Their declaration comes just five weeks before more environmental regulations and taxes come into effect, as dictated by Trudeau’s climate czar – the CN Tower scaler himself –  Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault.

The Clean Fuel Regulations and yet another carbon tax increase are set for July 1, which P.E.I Premier Dennis King said will cost citizens 17 cents extra per litre for home heating fuel.

“Consumers here have been hit hard with inflation and we can’t take any more cost at the pump, and to have a double whammy like this will impact our economy,” King said.

“And that’s going to be difficult for Islanders and for Atlantic Candians to absorb,” he added. 

King further said that, on top of inflation hitting Atlantic provinces hard, “we don’t have a whole lot of options in terms of we have one major refinery that produces most of the fuel that we use for the region.” 

The Atlantic Premiers met with climate change Minister Guilbeault virtually on Wednesday. They also expressed worry that the regulations would impact the cost of imported goods, and fuel prices and supplies. 

Trudeau Liberals continue on with climate hysteria

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Trudeau continues to misinform Canadians that environmental policies don’t hurt the economy. 

On Thursday, Guilbeault’s office responded to the Premiers’ pleas by saying that the margins of refineries in Atlantic Canada have gone from about 10 cents per litre in 2019 to nearly 50 cents per litre in 2022.

Last week, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe threw down a challenge to Guilbeault to “come get me” if he has issues with using coal for power after 2030. 

Moe’s challenge came after the CN Tower scaler threatened criminally prosecuting him if he fails to shut down coal-fired power plants past 2030.
