Conservative MP Brent Rathgeber talks to Global.

You’ll never hear Conservative backbencher Brent Rathgeber using his precious time in the House of Commons to talk about the NDP’s $21-billion carbon tax. “I will absolutely guarantee you that I won’t be talking about the carbon tax,” he said in an interview Wednesday. For one thing, he doesn’t think it’s accurate.

So what does he think of fellow Conservative MPs’ repeated statements about said “job-killing” tax? “I don’t like them at all.”

As to the Backbench Spring, the Canadian Press wonders where the opposition MPs are.
