CTF Federal Director Aaron Wudrick says this includes the planned April 1 increase in the federal carbon tax.
Wudrick says this is no time to increase any tax, Ottawa needs to hit pause on the carbon tax now.
“With many Canadian businesses shuttered and millions of people losing income, the last thing Canadians need right now are higher taxes driving up the costs they still face.”
He also called on federal parliamentarians to donate their scheduled pay increase on April 1st noting that this is the wrong time for politicians to get a salary bump when millions of Canadians are struggling.
