Trudeau’s desperate climate plan will cost Canadians billions and jeopardize hundreds of thousands of jobs

September 24, 2019

Trudeau will raise taxes by $3,000 per family and increase gas prices by 73 cents/liter

Today Justin Trudeau announced that a re-elected Liberal Government would use legislation to force Canada to commit to net-zero emissions by 2050.

Trudeau’s plan would raise taxes by $3,000 on middle-class families and hike gasoline prices by 73 cents/liter.

He will destroy the economies of British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Newfoundland, while also destroying the manufacturing sector in Ontario and Quebec.

Hundreds of thousands of people will lose their jobs.

And these are just modest estimates. To realize his goal, Justin Trudeau will need to make even more irresponsible changes like:

  • Make air travel affordable only to the very rich;
  • Eliminate Canada’s energy industry;
  • Transition away from the manufacturing sector;
  • Ban natural gas use; and/or
  • Shut down cattle farming in the agriculture sector.

Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives recognize the global environmental impact of climate change. That is why we have a responsible, fully costed and effective plan to address global emissions.

Our Conservative plan saves Canadian jobs and decreases global emissions, while Trudeau’s plan kills local jobs and increases global emissions.

For the fourth day in a row, in the midst of yet another scandal, Justin Trudeau has thrown out an uncosted promise.

Only Andrew Scheer has a plan to put more money in your pocket and help you get ahead.

To ensure Justin Trudeau doesn’t destroy our economy and raise your taxes we must defeat his desperate and out-of-touch Liberals on October 21st.
