Trudeau plans on hiking carbon tax by 50% as coronavirus shuts down Canada

One in three Canadian businesses will not survive for more than a month of the coronavirus pandemic, and that's on top of the 929,000 Canadians who lost their jobs last week.

Canada is in lockdown mode, people are scared, and the economy is being hammered. Families are facing unemployment, bankruptcy and poverty. And any government that would choose to raise taxes at such a time would be laughed at by the international community for doing something so dumb — or scorned for such shameless cruelty.

But that is exactly what Justin Trudeau is doing.

His Liberal government is planning to hike the carbon tax by 50 per cent!
