Taxpayers Federation reacts to Supreme Court ruling on federal carbon tax
OTTAWA, ON: Canadian Taxpayers Federation Federal Director Aaron Wudrick released the following statement in response to today’s Supreme Court of Canada ruling on the federal carbon tax:
“This ruling, while disappointing, confirms only that the Trudeau carbon tax is legal – it doesn’t make it good policy.
“The fact remains that this tax represents higher costs for millions of Canadian families and businesses, causing significant economic pain in exchange for no environmental gain.
“The legal battle may be over, but we will proudly continue our fight against this tax in the policy arena.” Aaron Wudrick
"We know the vast majority of Albertans don't want this tax and we will continue to proudly stand with Albertans and fight against carbon taxes," said Franco Terrazzano,
Alberta Director for the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. "Just because Prime Minister Justin Trudeau can hammer families and businesses with a crippling carbon tax it doesn't mean he should."
