The federal government doesn’t seem to understand that the carbon tax impacts farmers’ bottom lines. The carbon tax is added to almost everything we buy, but unlike many consumer goods, we cannot pass it on to the end consumer. We sell our grain on the world market.
It’s hard to imagine, but as inflation raises its head, causing many across the country to be challenged by the increased cost of groceries, housing, fuel, and everything else, as of April 1st the federal government is increasing the carbon tax again from $40 per tonne of greenhouse gas emissions to $50 per tonne.
The Bank of Canada estimates that the carbon tax increase increases our inflation rate by 0.4%. It’s shocking that this government is so out of touch with everyday Canadians. To add insult to injury the federal government adds on a carbon tax and tags on the GST.
