Brian Pallister: Axe the Carbon Tax!
TAKE THE SURVEY – DEADLINE: MARCH 19
The Manitoba government has just announced a consultation process for a Made in Manitoba Carbon Tax.
The “consultation” began on March 3, 2017 and ends barely 2 weeks later, on March 19, 2017.
Yet Premier Brian Pallister has already said that he will be announcing his "classic" carbon tax plan at the end of March! (According to CBC News: “Pallister, however, has promised the province will develop its own climate change program and deliver it by the end of the first quarter of 2017”.)
The Manitoba government can’t possibly absorb all the feedback from Manitoba residents in ten business days and then make an intelligent decision whether or not to submit to Justin Trudeau’s demand for a carbon tax in Manitoba.
Something is very wrong here.
In any case, there is not much time left for Manitobans to let Brian Pallister know that:
- You are against a Carbon Tax that will hurt Manitoba's economy, put Manitoba at an economic disadvantage, and increase the price of gas, heating, farming, and many many other goods and services without doing anything to help the environment
- Manitoba’s Premier needs to stand shoulder to shoulder with Premier Brad Wall of Saskatchewan and, together, oppose Justin Trudeau's demands for a carbon tax!
Take the survey!
There is no clear YES / NO question in the survey as to whether or not you want a Justin Trudeau style carbon tax in Manitoba.
If you want to have your say, you can do two things.
The second question in the survey is: “What should a Made-in-Manitoba carbon price look like?”
The fourth possible answer to this question is:
“Other: (please specify)”_______________”
and in the space provided you can type your response.
For example, you could say “NO CARBON TAX” or “STAND WITH BRAD WALL AND JUST SAY NO” or "Manitobans Should Be Able to Vote in a Referendum Before Having to Pay for a Carbon Tax" or something like that.
Also, at the very end of the survey, there is this final question:
“Do you have any additional comments or suggestions?”
In this space provided, you can type a message for Brian Pallister and tell him what you think of the carbon tax.
