About our Campaign

 
 

AxetheCarbonTax.ca is a national campaign to oppose - not one particular carbon tax - but all of the carbon taxes across Canada, current and proposed, including “classic” carbon taxes and variations such as the “cap and trade” carbon tax.  

We are:

  • Against the idea of “carbon taxes”;

  • Against the introduction of any “carbon tax”, in any form, by any disguise;

  • Against the “classic” carbon tax: a tax on goods and services of which the burden is directly on the backs of individual working Canadians;

  • Against the “cap and trade” carbon tax: a tax on goods and services of which the burden is indirectly on the backs of individual working Canadians through higher prices;  

  • Against false promises of “carbon taxes” being “revenue neutral” for individual working Canadians;

  • Against erroneous claims that “carbon taxes” are not harmful to our economy; and

  • Against disingenuous claims that we have “no other choice” but to introduce “carbon taxes” in order to protect the environment.

We are a grassroots campaign that proposes to educate working Canadians on the facts of “carbon taxes” and to encourage grassroots activism across Canada on this issue.
