Business of Supply   in the House of Commons tomorrow to table his new budget. Canadians who are already struggling as the government has increased the tax burden on the middle class will have nothing to fear. There will be no carbon tax on seniors and students. By the way, that carbon tax is raising the price

The Environment  . That was a real middle-class adventure, by his definition. Do the Liberals know who is not feeling good, though? It is the tomato farmer in my riding, who had to pay $6,200 in one month for a carbon tax. When will the government realize that its feelings are not worth hammering taxpayers

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, what Canadians want tomorrow is a break from the Prime Minister. In the last budget, he hiked taxes on small businesses, on families, and on students, and then we got the national carbon tax and a payroll tax hike, but that is not enough. Now the Prime Minister

Dan Albas
Conservative

Business of Supply   will not reduce spending, and we know they will not, then that leaves raising taxes. In effect, that is precisely what happens when the Liberals' national carbon tax comes fully online. Carbon taxes increase costs on businesses and hydro costs, and the businesses become less competitive

Business of Supply   concerns, including the latest Senate report.

Kevin Waugh
Conservative

Business of Supply  Mr. Speaker, I would like to reassure people in the House that my jurisdiction in Saskatchewan is the only jurisdiction in this country that does not support the carbon tax. We know it is not revenue neutral. We know that. In fact, the agriculture minister paid a visit to my

Gérard Deltell
Conservative

Business of Supply  . That is classic Liberal government. The same goes for the Liberals' coast-to-coast carbon tax, which will hit taxpayers right in the pocketbook. Just to be clear with everyone, the best example of that is this. The government had a study done by the civil servant about the impact

Business of Supply   generous. However, for the taxpayer—well, they have to pay up. They have to pay up to $2,500 per household for a new national carbon tax, and add another $2,200 per household for higher CPP premiums. Then they have to give back their family tax cut on income splitting, watch their tax

Excise Tax Act   Okanagan—Shuswap. It turned out that we were both very interested in the same important issue. The issue is that Canadians are willing to pay their fair share of taxes, but Canadians are being tricked by the government. The Prime Minister said that we must all pay a new carbon tax

National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians Act   security but may actually just be injurious to the Liberal government. The government seems to hide things it does not like.

Candice Bergen

Taxation   on all Canadians in the form of a carbon tax, which will do more to hamstring Canadian trade and competitiveness than any American border tax. Just ask Alberta and Ontario. When will the Prime Minister realize that it is his carbon tax that Canadian job creators are so worried about?

House debate

Candice Bergen
Conservative

Taxation  Mr. Speaker, if that were accurate, the Liberals would release the numbers. Canadians are worried about the Prime Minister's plan to impose a carbon tax, while refusing to say just how much this tax will cost them. The Prime Minister is not being transparent on the carbon tax

Richard Cannings

Natural Resources committee  I wanted to follow up on comments around the price on carbon tax. In British Columbia, it's my understanding from reading economic studies that the program was actually having a very positive effect on reducing people's purchase of fuels. B.C. was reducing its GHG footprint

Natural Resources committee   of Engineering and the David Suzuki Foundation with the McGill researchers, they come in with an implicit carbon tax of $1,200.

Natural Resources committee   and the endeavour of developing and adopting new technologies. I want to highlight a concern of my own that has to do with the kind of carbon tax that is being proposed in Canada. Often the B.C. model is hailed as a great example, and it would be closest to what the Liberals have said
