Sault Ste. Marie On – Sonny Spina, Conservative Candidate for Sault Ste. Marie, is committed to saving you money and scraping the Liberal carbon tax. The Liberal carbon tax is a tax on everything that will hurt families right across Canada, including here in Sault Ste. Marie. Even worse, if re-elected the Liberals are going to raise it even more.
“Far too often I’ve heard from people here in Sault Ste. Marie that affordability is their number one issue. I’ve heard from seniors whose pensions can no longer cover their costs, from moms and dads who are struggling to pay their bills, and from everyday people who are seeing less of their hard earned money. That’s why we need a government that’s working to make life more affordable, not raising taxes.”
The carbon tax is going to hit Canadians hard. It’s going to raise the price of necessities such as gas, groceries, and home heating. The Liberal Environment Minister has even refused to rule out further increases to their carbon tax. According to the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) at $102 per tonne, the Liberal carbon tax would increase the cost of natural gas for an average household by $469 a year and add 31 cents per litre to the price of gas.
Canadian’s need a government that is committed to helping them get ahead, that will make life more affordable not take more of your hard earned money.
In addition to scrapping the Liberal Carbon tax, a Conservative government will take the GST off of home heating and energy, saving the average household $107 a year.
