In Alberta, we are waiting for Rachel Notley’s carbon tax to take effect in January 2017.
Rachel Notley and the NDP have been less than transparent about the costs of the carbon tax from the very beginning. The official NDP line is that the carbon tax will cost the average Alberta family $443 per year. In actuality, the carbon tax will cost Alberta families thousands of dollars in hidden price increases to the cost of our food, clothing and everything else we buy. But we’ll never know the full extent, since the NDP refused to do a full economic assessment of their tax on all the things.
But who will defend us from the carbon tax? Who will stand up for Albertans and repeal this if we give them the chance?
You can judge for yourself.
