BREAKING: Trudeau’s carbon tax will cost each household $1,200, economy will lose $20 billion

It has just been revealed that Trudeau’s carbon tax will cost each Canadian household $1,200, with the economy seeing a reduction of $20 billion by 2030.

BREAKING: Trudeau’s carbon tax will cost each household $1,200, economy will lose $20 billion

According to figures produced by Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) for the Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO)—which were initially covered up and are only now being released—Canada’s projected GDP is expected to shrink from $2.68 trillion in 2030 to $2.66 trillion as a direct result of the carbon tax.

That’s a loss of $20 billion as a direct result of Liberal ideology.

This information was only released today following over a month of heavy criticism from Conservatives, saying that the Liberals had put a gag order on the PBO preventing them from releasing the data. The PBO later confirmed this was the case.

“We’ve been told explicitly not to disclose it and reference it,” Parliamentary Budget Officer Yves Giroux said, adding, “It confirms the report that we have published.”

This culminated in a motion led by Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre in which the Liberals would be forced to provide data on the impact of the carbon pricing system and federal fuel charge.

“Last week, the Parliamentary Budget Officer revealed that the government is hiding a secret carbon tax report that proves a majority of Canadians pay more into this scam than what they get back in these phony rebates,” said Conservative MP Jasraj Singh Hallan earlier this week.

“The Liberal-NDP government did what it does best. It put a gag order on the PBO, keeping the truth from Canadians.”

And now we know why. The carbon tax isn’t just bad for business; it’s devastating for all Canadians.
