EXCLUSIVE POLL: Ontarians overwhelmingly oppose a carbon tax! 82% of Ontario PC supporters also oppose!

Brian LilleyArchive

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.

Let's keep up the fight, send an email right now!

Patrick Brown if you continue to support a carbon tax of any sort or name, I will not vote for you. I am so against this that I will vote for anyone that does not support this tax.

When I heard that Patrick Brown had jumped on the carbon band wagon I said to myself; “Patrick, you just lost my vote.” Now where do I turn?

“That is ugly, and without S.Harper it will get worse…”

Please tell me PIERRE, what did Harper really do to stop the climate change bullshit?

Did he stand up at any time, here or abroad, and denounce it for the scam that it is? Did he point out that continuing with the nonsense would be the nails in the coffins of our already crippled economies? Did he see to it that the bullshit was purged from the websites, administrations, and propaganda of his federal departments (Env. Canada, Natural Resources, etc)?

Harper failed his country. He had his chance to change things for the better, but he chose to take the wishy-washy route in the hopes that he’d get re-elected.

THIS JUST IN!: asteroid heading for solar system! we can stop this, but it will cost a little. send me 20,000,000,000.00, and i’ll stop it. you see, i, and only I, have magic fairy dust. THINK OF THE CHILDREN!!!

That is ugly, and without S.Harper it will get worse, the PC leaning left, and the scary thing , eco-left, Who put that Brown as head of the PCO , ??? “we know climate change is man made” the stupidest statement I heard from a politic.

Ontario residents are all brain dead, sixty percent is great but it should be one hundred percent or damn close to it. That sixty percent is probably the Conservative vote with some Liberal and NDP tagalongs that secretly yearn to be a Conservative so that they can save themselves a little money.
And Patrick " The Weasel " Brown, I have previously supported but it seems he’s a Liberal wearing a Conservative mask of deception. He should further examine the facts regarding climate change as has been mentioned here by other comments. Another politician embraces the hoax called climate change, I have said it before, all that climate change bunk is about is Money, Power, Influence and Control. The price on something goes up, climate change, we get a storm, climate change, the refugee crisis, climate change, terrorism, climate change. It’s true you can’t make this stuff up, and certainly it would be funny if it wasn’t true. How such massively large numbers of people can fall for this ridiculous lie is beyond my comprehension, so we all end up paying for a belief someone else has about an issue with the introduction of more taxes. The quality of politicians that we get taking office is in direct relation to the amount of lethargy demonstrated by the voting majority. The whole concept of being in office is to make things better than what they were when you took office and make it better for everyone not just YOU. So far with Queen Kathleen it’s just been a rehash of the Dalton Gang years. Sell the Hydro and hit everybody with an energy tax, the price of gasoline is down, we can add some more tax. This is not an elected government managing our budgetary/administrative affairs, these people are parasites preying on the public body like a virus. Unfortunately we have the same type of government in Ottawa, and it’s going to be a long slow, painful death for Canada as a whole because we have these parasitic tapeworms feeding off us. And now it seems The Weasel has picked up the Tax Gauntlet, we have nowhere to run in the next election.

Patrick Brown is someone who is well outside my comfort zone when it comes to financially supporting the
so called PC Ontario party. I have stopped voting for any party in Ontario at election time. I wait until elections roll around and give a few bucks to a few individual riding associations where honest people
deserve support.
commented 2016-04-06 13:49:10 -0400
All I can think of is; it’s the helicopter-parent’s fault. The young generation of voters , who are the majority, have been looked after their whole lives, and now NEED someone (government) to look after them. Maybe after they start paying their own way, ie: taxes, mortgage, utilities, food, etc., etc., etc., they MIGHT get a clue. But until then, well, I shudder.
commented 2016-04-06 13:46:03 -0400
Patrick Brown are you listening?
commented 2016-04-06 12:10:49 -0400
Oh, and the dickhead Ontario PCs – who are also committing to a carbon tax – will be fighting for a chunk of that same stupid majority.

Headline: 13 June 2014
Majority of Ontario voters support Liberals and NDP

Headline 05 April 2016

Is there anything on God’s green earth stupider than the average Ontario voter?

Below is my response to a donation request from the Ontario PCP and Patrick Brown’s reply:

I was all in for Patrick Brown until he decided he was in favour of taxing CO2.
Instead of capitulating to political correctness, Mr. Brown should have the gumption to expose this lie for what it is.
Doing so would very likely garner more support for the party.
Either he has not educated himself on this issue or won’t address it honestly. There is no excuse for either.
I would be happy to provide material exposing “climate change” for the fraud that it is and illustrating the damage done by so-called solutions to this non-problem.
If you are not aware of it, a scientific paper authored by Michael E. Mann – inventor of the debunked global-warming hockey stick – together with other AGW scientists, acknowledges that there has been no temperature increase for the last 20 years as atmospheric CO2 concentration has increased by a factor of 20%.

I am deeply disappointed.

Unless and until the party’s position changes on this issue, I will not be making donations.

On voter intentions, the survey indicates that the libs would garner most of the votes in the 905, 416 areas as well as the university graduates.

The 905 and 416 are loaded with immigrants who would vote for no one but a liberal since their votes have been bought and we are continuing to pay them for their votes.

As for the university graduates, after a minimum of 4 years of being brainwashed by liberal leaning intellectuals who have never worked outside of academia, no one should be surprised if they intend to support a liberal or Marxist governments?

Since most people earning more than $50,000 would need to have a good education, therefore it stands to reason that these middle and upper class respondents have worked for a few years and discovered the reality of the poor leadership of the liberal governments. This is reflected in the lower numbers supporting the liberals.

Won’t matter. Regressives want it to fund more welfare and “refugees” and Lieberals do opposite to what the public wants!

I figured out a way for Ontario to raise money without reaching into the pockets of the tax payers. Sent a note off to some politicos in Toronto but never heard from them again.
My idea would be expensive to implement but the ROI would be less than a year and would create a substantial number of jobs.
If the schemers in Toronto are not interested then why should an average everyday citizen care?
commented 2016-04-06 08:26:15 -0400
I should point out that carbon is a form of pollution. You may want to revise that in your letter .

Patrick Brown is a weenie just like his predecessor Hudak.
commented 2016-04-06 08:24:09 -0400
While I believe in climate change , I do not support a carbon tax ,as it’s not going to help reduce emissions since people still need to rely on fuel . There needs to be better alternatives introduced
commented 2016-04-06 07:53:05 -0400
If it turns out that all these scientists were wrong about global warming and things actually begin to cool down instead, will we be told to begin burning more fossil fuels to increase the CO2 output and warm up the planet?
commented 2016-04-05 22:54:03 -0400
Until they can tax us on, or withhold, oxygen they have the carbon tax to keep us hostage. The Soviets had a way of silencing political dissent. For those of us that will not buy into that old bid of extortion we now have a newly brainwashed generation of “save the earth” and “humanity” foot soldiers to withhold economic prosperity to make things right. – to reengage us in slavery and dependence all over again, post-modern style.

Ya! Brown knows all about climate change. I bet he knows as much as De Caprio.
He thinks he lost just a few people with his “OH so bright idea” but he probably lost the next election also.

I sent a letter off to the two liberals you mentioned.
Probably got my name on a $hit list now.
You’re welcome.

How else will Wynne and the rest of the corrupt politicians pay the crooks of the wind and solar scams.

One of the best sites on the internet that I know of for exposing the fraud corruption and disaster that is the alternative energy scams.

Stop These Things.

Come on guys! Don’t blame Patrick Brown for jumping on the “man-made climate change” bandwagon. He wants to get voted in….in the video, did you not hear the supportive applause that followed those words of his in his scripted speech? And one has to assume he was blapping at a Conservative crowd, which makes it all the more disturbing. Out here in Alberta, it was almost a given that ultra-conservative Danielle Smith of the Wildrose party was a shoo-in (before the election of the disastrous Alison Redford) until she had the “audacity” to voice the extremely unpopular viewpoint in a televised political debate among all the brainwashed masses that “climate change was not settled”. Those words are the kiss of death as far as so-called “progressives” are concerned. Let us just hope that Patrick Brown is merely spouting the popular mantra of the day and has absolutely no intention of carrying through with such idiocy. Maybe it’s time that we Conservatives learned how to prevaricate as well as the Liberals.
commented 2016-04-05 19:52:57 -0400
The liberals already have a carbon tax has anyone noticed the rise in gas they just raised the tax on fuel at the pump by 4.5% and of course the HST will rise because we pay tax n tax.

After listening to Brown he is not a conservative he is not even a progressive conservative he’s just a money grubbing political hack. Who does that leave me to vote for because as long as Brown is the leader of the PCs I will never vote for that party.
What’s the difference between the parties, they are all tax and spend tax and spend how much debt do we have to endure.
Brain said you catch more with honey, I’m all in favour to cover him with honey put him on a rail and run him out of town. When we ever get a true leader that can see into the future and lead us there. The Liberals have taken Ontario from the lowest electric rates to thee highest in North America in 10 short years, When will we have a leader that can lead
Enlightened Conservative

80% oppose… But not Patrick Brown. Seems the politicians’ new meme is ignoring the electorate, be it in socialist shithole Canada or almost socialist shithole “United States”.

Wynne is broke. Tax based is tapped. Wynne must rape Ontario tax payers more or face financial default.

Hope you drop dead Wynne you nazi pig!!!

Well, those Ontario welfare bums and islamic supporters and union supporting government employees all will get what they deserve.

I hope she pounds the living shit out of them with taxes and more taxes.

I also hope the west grows some balls and tells the feds to take a hike – no transfer funds.

The Ontario scum that voted for the witch that runs the province were warned – let them suffer the consequences.

Looks good on them – they are reaping what they sowed.

Anyone know a person who will admit to voting for the witch?

Ask around.

A bit different today than it was after the election.
