Salaries Act   reduction. Merry Christmas to us, courtesy of the Government of Canada. Now the government has raised carbon taxes and payroll taxes and nickel-and-dimed Canadians. In fact, the Fraser Institute has done studies on this, showing that the average Canadian family is paying $800 more

Taxation   gifts back under the tree that he took away in the first place. The minister has tried to raise taxes on diabetics, on people with autism, on small businesses, and now, with the GST, on his very own carbon tax. When will he stop taking so much money from the people who pay the bills

Battlefords—Lloydminster   the Prime Minister a clear message last night. It wants no part of his carbon tax, nor does it support his agenda of higher taxes and out-of-control spending. Saskatchewan has in no way benefited from the leadership of the Prime Minister. The incoming member for Battlefords

Environment committee  I understand there was a broader analysis done within your department on the impact that a carbon tax would have, but when it was released to us, it was heavily redacted to the point where it actually had virtually no meaning. It was very difficult to decipher what the impact

Ed FastConservative

Environment committee  Yes, we will provide full economic analysis with no redaction. I'd like to briefly explain the distinction. The clean fuel standard will be a federal regulation. It will apply uniformly across Canada. The federal government is not imposing a carbon tax across Canada. There will not be—

Environment committee   is just some housekeeping. Back on October 31, 2017, Ms. Amanda Wilson was here. We expressly requested from her a copy of the analysis that was done on the negative economic impacts of a national carbon tax on the forest products sector and more broadly, perhaps, on other sectors. I

Ed FastConservative

Environment committee  We look forward to receiving that. I'd like to talk about the clean fuel standard that is being proposed, which I don't think anyone has seen yet. It's pending. Industry has referred to the pending clean fuel standard as being the second level of carbon tax that's going

Environment committee   the pricing system of their choice, either a direct price system such as B.C. or Alberta's hybrid mix of carbon tax on fuels plus emissions trading systems for large industry, or cap-and-trade systems such as those adopted in Ontario and Quebec.

Agriculture committee  So this is what I understand: because Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada is less present and there are fewer programs to help farmers, farmers themselves have to pay for the costs of adapting and preserving their soil. In addition, there is now a carbon tax. So farmers have to pay

Agriculture committee   of research. Mr. Desrochers, I didn't have a chance to go too much into this before, but you were talking about the impact that carbon taxes and those things could have on agriculture.

Agriculture committee   the rules, regulations, carbon taxes, and all these things that are being put on them that are making them less and less competitive. Can you talk a little bit about some of the impacts that these things are having? We're seeing studies all the time that show that not only

Taxation   small businesses. I do not understand how they can do it with a straight face. They have added new payroll taxes. They have added a carbon tax. They have even labelled small business owners as wealthy, greedy tax cheats. Small businesses are the backbone of the Canadian economy

Blake RichardsConservative

Taxation  . Of course, do not forget the carbon tax on everything that will make the cost of doing business exponentially higher. They also cancelled the small business hiring credit.

Access to Information Act   were talking about. How did we find that out? How did Canadians find that out? It was through access to information.
