This “Conservative” Premier Just INCREASED The Carbon Tax! – Pallister’s “Made In Manitoba” Solution
Josh Sigurdson talks with author and economic analyst John Sneisen about the very concerning localized increase in the already absurd Federal carbon tax.
Justin Trudeau’s Federal carbon tax charges $10/tonne on carbon, increasing to $50/tonne by 2022.
Well, for the time being, the so-called “Made In Manitoba Solution” pushed forward by Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister set to be implemented on September 1st actually charges MORE than the Federal government!
Carbon will be taxed $25/tonne, charging about 5.3 cents a litre, just under 7 cents a litre on diesel.
This will rake in $248 million a year, starting with $143 million this year.
The province intends to use part of the revenue to create a $102 million conservation trust that would protect natural areas and another $40 million on a “green fund” intended to mitigate “climate change.”
In 2018 in total, Pallister plans to raise everyone’s taxes $118 million. He claims that he will give income tax relief but people will still be paying more and when businesses pay more, there will be more unemployment and smaller businesses will have a harder time competing. Also, Pallister claims that he will drop the PST 1% by 2020. Wow… 1%… How helpful…
Meanwhile, it appears Pallister is only make the most unpopular cuts like hospital staff while growing the size and scope of government elsewhere.
It’s also important to mention that the Manitoba carbon tax will be implemented on top of the GST and fuel tax already in place. This is extortion.
Of course Trudeau claimed during the election that he would not force provinces into the carbon tax, but of course he has and the provinces were given until the end of 2018 to make a decision.
Brad Wall and Brian Pallister seemed to be the only ones against the carbon tax, but we know better now. It just took more transfers from Ottawa for Manitoba to weakly fall into the agenda.
The province has gotten $350 million from Ottawa in transfers and Manitoba’s debt will reach 25 billion dollars by the end of this fiscal year.
So it’s time to call out Pallister as a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The continuation of leftist, statist policy forcing us into the dark ages.
This should infuriate everyone. This benefits the United Nations. This benefits government via theft. This shoves individuals further into poverty and debt. This props up major monopolies while shoving small businesses out of the market. This agenda doesn’t include the freedom of the individual, but simply the subservience of the masses and it must be stopped.
Stay tuned as we continue to cover this story.
