Spreading the good word beyond the House of Commons

Reference to a “carbon tax” turns up in the Lacombe Globe in an op-ed by Conservative MP Blaine Calkins.

Unfortunately, while our government continues to support economic growth, the NDP is focused on promoting their $21 billion carbon tax. This tax would not only take money out of the pockets of hardworking Canadians, but also kill jobs and cripple businesses.

Two similar sentences appear in the Smoky Lake Signal in an op-ed by Conservative MP Brian Storseth.

While our Government is focused on a low-tax plan that will help create jobs, the NDP is pushing high-tax schemes to kill jobs. The NDP’s massive carbon tax will not only take $21 billion out of the pockets of Canadians, it will also cripple Canadian businesses and kill Canadian jobs.
