Taxation  Mr. Speaker, the Liberals are adding bigger deficits, and Canadians are being taxed deeper and deeper in debt. The Prime Minister claimed that revenue from his carbon tax would stay in the provinces and territories where it was collected, yet the GST on carbon tax goes

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, a new report reveals that the Prime Minister will take $130 million out of Alberta and B.C. this year by charging GST on top of their provincial carbon taxes. It is shocking. That is $130 million in federal taxes, despite the Prime Minister's promise that carbon

Pierre PoilievreConservative

Human Resources committee  I can help you, then. All three, in fact, are included in the market basket measure. A Finance Canada briefing in 2015 suggested a carbon tax would create a cascading effect of higher prices on these very items. How much will a $50 a tonne carbon tax increase the cost

Human Resources committee  Does your department have any estimation of the increased costs of a market basket for an average family as a result of a $50 a tonne carbon tax? Does that analysis exist within your department, yes or no?

Human Resources committee  With respect, Mr. Chair, we have allowed the minister to go on at length. The question was the impact of a $50 a tonne carbon tax on a basic market basket of goods that people need for living, and he's come back with a quote from a CEO of a multinational oil and gas company

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, today I visited SunTech, a green technology farm in Ottawa, which produces tomatoes for customers in Ottawa. In January, the farm paid $6,000 in Liberal carbon taxes. Its Mexican competitors do not pay these taxes or Liberal electricity bills, so they get

The Environment  Mr. Speaker, if the hon. member is so concerned about climate change, why is she so pleased to have emissions of greenhouse gases resulting from transporting produce from Mexico to Ottawa rather than from Ottawa to Ottawa? That is exactly the effect of her new carbon tax. She

Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act   the risks are too high. What is next? Regulation after regulation, delay after delay will hurt our economy.

Yukon Environmental and Socio-economic Assessment Act   it is federal or territorial. That is a huge factor. Adding on a carbon tax, and we have the uncertainty of the reassessment and taking out time limits, is pushing it to the edge where investment is not worth it. How long will the environmental review take? Will it be one year or five years

How can we expect to help the economy if we bring in an uncompetitive carbon tax that simply encourages mining companies to take investments and jobs outside of Canada? I should note that we have some of the strictest
