Politicians love taxes like fish love water, it's what they need to survive so there is no surprise when they call for new taxes.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, and even the Ontario Progressive Conservative leader Patrick Brown support a form of carbon tax in Ontario.
But we wanted to find out how Ontario voters feel about paying more due to a carbon tax. So we commissioned a poll.
805 Ontario voters were polled as part of a demographically and geographically representative online panel between March 18 and 20th.
We asked them how they felt about a carbon tax. The results are below:
Across the province a clear majority, 60% oppose a carbon tax – 38% strongly oppose and 22% somewhat oppose.
Just 12% of Ontario voters strongly support a carbon tax.
The news is worse for Brown. The man who is currently leading in the polls, who would win an election if it were held today, is offside 82% of his voters oppose a carbon tax. 66% strongly oppose and 16% somewhat oppose.
Even the majority of New Democrats oppose the tax, with 53% of NDP voters saying they don't like it.
The support is even lukewarm among Liberals, not that it matters as Kathleen Wynne's numbers keep falling.
Now you can help stop the insanity by emailing PC Party leader Patrick Brown and Premier Kathleen Wynne directly just by filling out the form below.
