  • This is in addition to the increased costs the carbon tax puts on gas, groceries, and home heating, and;
  • The Liberal Government tried to cover-up this information from Canadians;
  • When the Parliamentary Budget Officer revealed that the Liberal Government had this data, they placed him under a gag order and attempted to disparage his reputation.
