Jason Kenney: Doug Ford Will Be 'Ally' In Fight Against Trudeau's Carbon Tax

  Jason Kenney: Doug Ford Will Be 'Ally' In Fight Against Trudeau's Carbon Tax Jason Kenney: Doug Ford Will Be 'Ally' In Fight Against Trudeau's Carbon TaxThe leader of Alberta's United Conservative Party released a statement Thursday lauding Ford's victory in the Ontario election, setting up a fight with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau over the federal government's plan to impose a national price on carbon pollution next year.

OTTAWA - The Conservatives say they will force the House of Commons to sit all night tonight if the government doesn't agree to produce an analysis of how much its carbon price is going to cost Canadian families. Finance critic Pierre Poilievre says it's his goal to make the government feel "as

We must confront it, fight it, and defeat it."[23]. Poilievre is opposed to a national carbon tax. Later , when he and fellow Conservative ministers and MPs met at the Foreign Office, Poilievre brought along his spear as a memento.[34].

OTTAWA - The Conservatives say they will force the House of Commons to sit all night tonight if the government doesn't agree to produce an analysis of how much its carbon price is going to cost Canadian families.

Finance critic Pierre Poilievre says it's his goal to make the government feel "as uncomfortable as possible."

With the Conservatives feeling emboldened by the Ontario election win for Doug Ford, who campaigned on a promise to get rid of that province's cap-and-trade system, Poilievre is tabling a motion demanding the Liberals produce documents on the cost by June 22.

The motion comes after weeks of political pressure from Poilievre and other Conservatives, who were given documents through the Access to Information Act that referenced such an analysis but blacked out the details.

Ontario's Election Brought Down Carbon Prices 2,000 Miles Away

  Ontario's Election Brought Down Carbon Prices 2,000 Miles Away When Ontario elected its new premier on Thursday, the price of carbon in California fell. Why? Because the Canadian province and California run a joint carbon market, so a carbon allowance traded in Ontario is essentially the same as an allowance traded in the Golden State. Doug Ford, Ontario’s next premier, has vowed to kill the local cap-and-trade program, a move that would sever its ties with the market. While California remains the dominant player in the joint carbon market, Ontario makes up about a quarter of it, said Colleen Regan, an analyst for Bloomberg New Energy Finance.

Conservative Finance Critic Pierre Poilievre demands that Finance Minister/Ethics Violator Bill 'MoneyBags' Morneau tell average Canadian families how much the carbon tax will cost them before asking Parliament to approve imposing it on them.

The Liberals are requiring every province to have a price on carbon of $20 per tonne by next year, rising to $50 per tonne by 2022. Legislation to establish a federal carbon price that will be imposed on provinces that don't comply is part of the spring budget implementation bill.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has argued the costs to families will change, depending on how provinces decide to use revenues from the carbon tax — but she hasn't yet explicitly said how Ottawa will return the revenues to people who live in a province where Ottawa imposes its price.

"We will make the government as uncomfortable as possible until they tell the truth," Poilievre said.

The Conservatives say the people of Ontario rejected the idea of a carbon tax when they elected Ford last week, although the Liberals counter that a majority of Ontario residents actually voted for one of the two parties that support carbon pricing.

Poilievre says if the Liberals believe their carbon price policy is legitimate they should show the costs and defend them.

And he says they can vote for his motion without backing away from their policy.
