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.
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.
