Carbon Tax Increased 50% and MP’s Get a Pay Increase…In the middle of a financial crisis!
April 1, 2020
Just when you think the Liberals can’t sink any lower…they do! They knew well in advance that an annual automated pay increase would come into affect on April 1st and they took no steps to suspend it. Add insult to injury and the Liberals initiated a 50% increase in Carbon tax as of April 1st as well. (Read Here).
If you object to this than please sign the letter below and send to every MP. The Prime Minister and Andrew Scheer, as well as other MP’s, have committed to donate their increase to charity but that doesn’t change a thing for taxpayers…they are on the hook for this cost either way. At a time when we can least afford it.

Thank you for your immediate attention to this matter.
Thank you and God Bless Canada!

Right Honourable Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,
It is appalling that the Liberal government, in the middle of a pandemic and financial crisis, are willing to accept the automated annual pay raise. While Canadians are confined to their homes and many millions are unable to work, the Prime Minister, and every Member of Parliament, received an increase in their already sizeable salaries. This increase did not come as any surprise as the automated pay raise was legislated back in 2005. Therefore, why weren’t steps taken in advance to suspend the increase until the pandemic had passed?
In the aftermath of the 2008 economic meltdown, the previous Conservative government froze parliamentarians’ salaries for three years.
MPs have the option of freezing their own salaries through federal legislation, but the government has decided not to do so. Donating the pay increase to charity is little comfort to taxpayers as no matter how it is spent, it still comes out of the “empty” pockets of Canadians.
Are Members of Parliament guaranteed a secure income during this pandemic or are they in need of filing for Employment Insurance like millions of other Canadians on house arrest?
Add insult to injury and the Liberals decide it is the perfect opportunity to increase the Carbon tax…by 50 percent. A tax which is guaranteed to have no significant, if any, affect on the climate. Canada is a carbon neutral country and therefore we are not responsible for so called Climate Change. Climate Change is a “man”ufactured crisis devised by Globalists to instill a false sense of fear around the world to create Global revenue. The “global warming” theory failed for obvious reasons (no global warming) and the Climate Change propaganda will do the same once enough people catch on. As long as countries like China continue to increase their coal-fired plants and India continues to dump tonnes of garbage into major waterways it should be considered criminal for the government to rob Canadians further by extracting hard earned taxpayer monies to fund this ponzie scheme.
While Canadians are trying to figure out how to put food on the table and pay their bills the Liberals, like ravenous hyenas, circle their prey and go in for the attack.
Shame on “any” MP, regardless of party line, who would accept a pay increase at this time.
I request the carbon tax increase be revoked and an immediate suspension on the automated pay raise on all government salaries.
Yours Truly a concerned and infuriated tax paying Canadian citizen,
