Mr. Speaker, the leaves are falling and the air is getting colder. It can only mean one thing, that winter is coming.
As Canadians, we embrace winter with skating, skiing, warm coats and hot chocolate.
Unfortunately, this magical time of year is clouded by a new threat. The NDP leader is proposing a $21 billion carbon tax that will make it more expensive for Canadians to feed their families, heat their homes and drive to hockey practice. Part 4 of the party's platform lays it out clear as day, and the NDP leader himself has stated that this would be used to generate billions in new revenues.
Canadians can trust our government to defend them against this costly new tax that will kill jobs, stall the economy and ruin winter.
