Taxation   framework on clean growth and climate change announced by Canada's first ministers in December 2016. Under the pan-Canadian framework, provinces and territories have the flexibility to choose between two systems: an explicit price-based system, either a carbon tax or a carbon levy

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, I wish I could thank the member for his answer, but there was no answer. That is the problem in the House. The government said that it would be revenue neutral, no GST on the carbon tax, and yet it is charging carbon tax. The government promised transparency

Taxation   a price on carbon pollution is a good thing. We want to work with the provinces on this and let them decide what they will do with the revenue. We think it is important that companies that pollute know that there is a cost to pollution, and that is the carbon tax. We believe

Taxation   to put a price on carbon. There are diverse opinions on whether that should be happening. I live in British Columbia, where we have had a carbon tax for a number of years. Therefore, the debate is not about carbon taxation, it is not about whether our climate is changing, but about

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2   with income splitting as soon as they took office. That is not all. Next, they cancelled plans to reduce the small business tax rate and employment insurance contributions, while increasing payroll taxes and creating a new carbon tax. That is still not all. We must not forget

Finance committee   is expensive, they're not considering that you're going to be selling two different things. In some cases—and B.C. and Alberta are prime examples—there is already a carbon tariff or a carbon tax, and that's obviously coming federally by 2022, so now you're selling three things for that same

Alison Thompson

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2   a measure that will drastically affect my constituents in a multitude of ways. That measure is a carbon tax, or do the Liberals hope Canadians have forgotten about that, because that is 54 days away? The good people in my riding just simply cannot afford another tax, certainly not one

Agriculture committee  Let me turn to you again, Ms. Lee. You talked about the carbon tax. You are asking for an exemption in order to use natural gas and propane. In your industry specifically, any increase in costs or any form of tax can have really disastrous consequences.

Luc BertholdConservative

Agriculture committee   because we have the extra cost of carbon pricing—cap and trade or carbon tax—which is a significant problem. We are not asking for an exemption from all carbon tax. We are seeking an exemption only in the fuel we use to grow our crops. Much like the diesel fuel for outdoor agricultural

Agriculture committee   they do everything possible to protect their land and ensure it is productive. During a previous study, we had a witness in here who had a greenhouse in B.C., and the carbon tax was costing her $50,000 a year, so she closed her greenhouse. With Alberta now having the carbon tax, I

John BarlowConservative

Agriculture committee  As we go forward with a carbon tax plan on the federal government side, is there any discussion among your members—and your members as well, Susie—about exempting agriculture from these types of things because of the things and the activities that you have done, whether it's

Canadian Farmers   Canada were silent. There is a great deal of anxiety among Canadian farmers. They do not trust the Liberal government and they have reason to be wary: a punitive carbon tax, critical trade agreements now in jeopardy, and crippling taxes on family farms show that agriculture

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2   of the Northwest Territories said that southerners want all of the north to be their park. Southerners are taking away their dreams and hopes, and creating a nightmare for them. They are putting a carbon tax on them and they are going to be not only the most impacted by climate change

Cathy McLeodConservative

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2   can see that already, just in my short time speaking about the meaning of beer, that the Liberals definitely do not have the best interests of Canadians at heart. The Liberals said that they would bring in a carbon tax. It takes energy to produce beer. That means those breweries

Arnold ViersenConservative

Budget Implementation Act, 2017, No. 2   for Canadians, but that is not true. Just one month ago, the Fraser Institute released a study indicating that 80% of families pay $840 more in taxes today due to this government's bad decisions. Not only will the soon to be implemented carbon tax result in higher taxes for Canadians
