CTF explains how carbon tax going up July 1 will impact Canadians.

On July 1st, Canada Day, the Trudeau government’s second carbon tax will kick in. Ottawa buried the tax in fuel regulations that require producers to reduce the carbon content of their fuels. If companies to not meet the requirments they will be forced to buy credits. Those increased costs will be passed along to consumers. To talk about this in more detail is the federal director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, Franco Terrazzano, who joined us from Ottawa. Terrazzano tells BCN’s Hal Roberts how much this will cost the average Canadian family.
