Conservatives call out Liberals for admitting possible carbon tax increase after 2022
With just weeks to go before the start of the federal election campaign, in which climate change is set to be a central concern for voters, Conservatives have seized on the potential for a carbon tax increase after Environment Minister Catherine McKenna appeared to leave the door open over the weekend.
Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre criticized McKenna in a press conference on Monday morning over an interview she gave to the Globe and Mail on Sunday in which she appeared to back off a pledge not to raise the carbon tax once it reaches the $50-per-tonne target set by the Liberals in 2022.
