A Letter to the Prime Minister from Pierre Poilievre

29 October 2023

Right Hon. Justin Trudeau P.C., M.P. Prime Minister of Canada
80 Wellington Street
Ottawa, ON K1A 0A2

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

You have now admitted that your carbon tax is not worth the cost. In pausing the tax on home heating oil until after the election, however, you plan to keep the tax on lower-emitting natural gas heat for which bills will be jumping even further in mere weeks as it gets colder.

There is no way to justify applying taxes on cleaner sources of heat especially when half of Canadians are living $200 away from insolvency and nearly two million have used a food bank in a single month, the highest figure ever recorded.

That is why common sense Conservatives are offering our full cooperation to pass an emergency bill tomorrow to axe the carbon tax on all forms of heat before winter heat bills hit Canadians next month.

You have now flip flopped and admitted taxing heat will not help the environment. You must be consistent and keep the heat on and take the tax off now for all Canadians.

Please contact me today to make arrangements to pass legislation axing the tax on all forms of home heating tomorrow.

Sincerely,

Hon. Pierre Poilievre, MP Leader of the Official Opposition
