The Prime Minister's carbon, tax will, the Prime Minister accept, the verdict, of the people and, cancel. His carbon, tax plan to, raise the price of everything. Like. To start by congratulating all those who put their names forward as candidates, in the election that occurred last night mr.. Speaker the impacts of climate change don't, stop with a change in government and Canadians expect us to take serious action to address climate change and, to grow our economy that, is why we are accelerating, the phase-out of coal making, historic investments in. Cleaner infrastructure, and putting, in trade place a price on carbon pollution to grow the economy and cleaner ways the, science is clear climate. Change is real and we will continue to deliver on what Canadians, and what Ontarians, expect, the. Honourable member, for Carleton. Kathleen. Wynne, was. This prime minister's liberal. Soulmate. They, agreed on absolutely. Everything they both raised, taxes, they, both ran ran, massive. Deficits, they both wrap our entrepreneurs. In red. Tape and they, both dance, - Gerald BOTS tune and, mr.. Speaker the, agenda, high taxes, and big government of carbon. Taxes, on working people has. Been rejected by Ontarians. Will, the Prime Minister take that message. The. Honourable parliamentary. Secretary, - the infirmary ker our government was elected on a platform of, investing, in Canadians to grow our economy and to work to, protect the environment our, plan is working, we have successfully developed the pan-canadian framework, on clean growth and climate change a historic, agreement to address climate change with the provinces and territories since. We formed government the Canadian economy has created over 60% more full-time jobs than the Harper Conservatives did, over the same time period and last, month Canada, saw its strongest, wage growth year over year since 2009. Our government. Will continue to invest in Canadians, as we continue to grow the middle class and support, those working hard to join it member. For Carleton we asked, about the liberal plan to, raise the price of gas by, at least, 11. Cents of leader they said that's okay Kathleen. Wynne, agrees, with us we, said the carbon tax will raise, the cost of home heating for the average family they said that's okay Kathleen. Wynne is on side with, our plan when, we said the carbon tax would make groceries, more, expensive. For, the average Canadian, family. They, said well we've got Kathleen, Wynne in our corner, now, Kathleen, Wynne has been rejected by, the people of Ontario who. Have delivered a verdict for the people will, this, government, take that message. Thank. You mr. speaker. Climate. Change is real and they expect, us to take strong action, and that is exactly what, we are doing we. Have taken, action we're accelerating the phase-out of traditional coal power we're, making historic investments in, clean infrastructure, like public transit and we are putting in place a price on carbon pollution to grow the economy and cleaner ways I certainly. Wish mr. speaker that for the sake of our children and grandchildren the, Conservatives, were not making climate change a partisan argument, we will continue, to take practical, cost-effective measures to tackle climate change and rogue, lean clean growth economy, because, mr. speaker, that is what Canadians expect that, is what our children expect. We, salute. Luisa. No home mr., speaker Kathleen, when, the great friend of the Prime Minister was, right the, Liberal Party lost. Yesterday what, happened was that Ontarians, clearly, said that they wanted, conservative, progressive government that.
Would Abolish the, liberal carbon tax the. One that, the current government wants to impose mr.. Speaker well. The government continued. With its desire. To impose. Carbon. Tax despite. The popular will. Mr.. Speaker the impacts of climate change don't stop with a change of government and Canadians. Expect, us to deal with climate, change by. Taking serious, action to. Improve our economy. This. Is the reason for which we are reducing. The use of fossil, fuels, we are investing, in green infrastructure, and putting a price on pollution to. Make the, economy. Grow in a green way, science. Is clear climate, change is real and we will continue to, meeting, Canadians, expectations. On this matter. Well. According to the government under. The former government greenhouse, gas emissions were reduced by more than two percent without, a liberal carbon tax, yesterday. Ontarians. Sent a clear message they. Don't want, one. So. If the liberal government wants to go forward despite the popular well will they at least have the decency to, give Canadian. It's. The information about how much it will cost for each Canadian, family. General. Parliamentary secretary. Mr.. Speaker as I said our government. Was elected on a platform of, electing. Of investing. In our. Economy, and protecting, our environment our plan. Is working. Since. We formed government the, Canadian economy. Has. Created. Many. New jobs far. More than under, the Conservatives, during. The same period of time last. Month. Canada. Saw its biggest salary. Increase here over a year since. April. 2009. Our. Government will continue to invest in Canadians. To. Grow the middle class from, emember fresh taiga, mr.. Speaker apparently, taking four and a half billion dollars from, taxpayers to, buy a pipeline, is in the, national interest. But. As chief. Patrick metabee, from the Anishinabe, nation said this, government is ready to pull out their checkbook, for something that won't contribute, to a sustainable future, and so they should also be ready to pay a big amount of money for women's, rights the health system, indigenous. Rights or child welfare mr.. Speaker what, are the Liberals real priorities. The. Honourable parliamentary, secretary, to the minister of innovation. Mr.. Speaker our government. Came to an agreement with Kinder Morgan. To, ensure that the pipeline would be built. We. Will guarantee. Over. 5, 15,000. Jobs, including. 9,000 NBC during the construction period. Furthermore. Mr. speaker this investment, is a fair price for Canadians. We, are able to. Undertake. This, project because, we know. That. We. Are respecting the trust that Canadians. Placed in us when, it comes to growing the, economy, and protecting the environment. Didn't. Vote to buy a pipeline. Yesterday. The grand council, chief from the Aniston object nation called the Liberals decision, to spend four and a half billion, dollars on a leaky 65 year old pipeline. Very foolish, he asked this why, is the government paying an international. Company when there are so many needs in this country it's a good question think, about how many communities. Across Canada particularly. Indigenous. Ones could benefit from this level of investment so, my question, if the Liberals were to invest these billions, of dollars in clean, energy would, we create more or less jobs than this pipeline. Mr.. Speaker the NDP can't seem to decide if they're a party that supports, Responsible, resource development, or if they're still the party is elite manifesto, let's, be clear the NDP, will not support, any project. Even, to the point of having their MPs, disrespect. The rule of law the, member opposite, fails to acknowledge there, are several indigenous, communities, along the route who support, this project. Please tell this house are there interests, also not important, this project, was subject to the most exhaustive, consultation, in the history of pipelines, in Canada I wonder, if the member opposite has bothered to consult the dozens, of First Nations communities, that stand to benefit, from this project moving forward thank, you to the Honourable member for Victoria, divide-and-conquer. Mr. speaker speaking. Of jobs, titles. Of tens. Of thousands, of Canadian, jobs are under attack by the actions, of President, Trump millions. More are worried about how a trade war will. Impact their families, in their communities no. One can predict what President, Trump will do next so, instead we'll the government focus, on protecting workers, here, at home can, the government tell us exactly when. Meetings. Will take place with labor and industry, to determine precisely, how. We, can support our Canadian, workers. The. Honourable parliamentary, secretary, to the Minister of innovation Mr, Speaker we have.
Committed To supporting, our aluminum. And steel industries. Because. They have. Been negatively affected by this this, frankly, illegal, and an absurd tariff, Mr Speaker we. Will continue to do so we are in meetings with those industries, we, have continued. To support innovation. In steel related, research we, have invested, recently, sixty million dollars, in Rio, Tinto, and Alcoa, in the saguenay region, to make greener. And cleaner aluminium, mr. speaker so we are continuing to support those industries, moving forward and we will continue to, support those interests seeing them in the face so, number. Four centers and beds mr.. Speaker yesterday, the prime minister told farmers. That there would be no NAFTA, without Supply Management, the. Response from farmers and saguenay was we, would have liked to have heard the words fully maintained, for, 20 years the government has been giving access to Canadian markets at each, negotiation. The, government doesn't seem able to say those words the Prime Minister would rather talk about flexibility. Furthermore. This morning on Twitter president. Trump directly. Attacked, supply, management, what. Does this government going to do to protect our supply management system, against. Unfair. American, attack, the. Circuits up general, parliamentary, secretary to the Minister of Agriculture mr.. Speaker our government, is firmly, in support of supply management and has committed to maintaining it, the. Prime Minister and the Minister of Agriculture as well as the ministers of Foreign. Affairs and other cabinet ministers, and. All. Of the Quebec liberal, members have. Been very clear. They. Have said unequivocally that, NAFTA Nageotte, negotiations. Are. Will, be clearly in support of supply, management our, government supports the system and will continue to defend and protect it as well, as the interests of farming, families. Mr.. Speaker yesterday, Ontarians. Ended, 15, years of liberal wasteful, spending and over taxation, by. Electing a conservative. Majority, government in, a clear mandate to lower taxes, and fight, the Liberals tax crab that they call a carbon, tax the. People of Ontario have spoken loud and clear but. Will the Prime Minister's, start listening, to Canadians, and stop forcing his carbon tax on everyday Canadians. Thank. You mr. speaker mr., speaker the four provinces that, price carbon pollution in Canada BC Alberta Ontario and Quebec led, the country in growth last year mr. speaker the, environment. And the economy go together British. Columbia put a price on carbon pollution more than a decade ago and since 2008. British Columbia's direct price on carbon has reduced emissions, by between five and fifteen percent according to the experts at the University of Ottawa and Duke University while. Provincial, GDP grew more than 17, percent during, that period and mr.. Speaker it shows that the price on carbon pollution is, part of an overall plan to address climate change will, address, it will create a good economic Rafi honourable member for Barry, Innes, Ville I want, to change, his talking points the Prime Minister and Kathleen, Wynne were political, BFFs, who share the same rigid.
Ideology. Last. Night voters in Ontario, sent a clear message that they'd had enough of liberal taxes, scandal, and debt, and deficits, and Liberal corruption, in fact the same backroom, operatives, that ran Ontario, into the ground are the same ones running the Prime Minister's office the people of Ontario rejected. The failed policies developed. By Gerald Butz will the Prime Minister, listen to the people of Ontario and not, geryl, butts and, scrap, this carbon tax. Speaker. As long as we're talking about taxes, let's get the facts straight our, government has cut taxes, for 9 million middle-class, Canadians. While raising them on the richest 1% we've. Also helped, hundreds, of thousands, of children out of poverty, mr. speaker with our child our Canada, child benefit that benefits nine out of ten Canadian families, Mr Speaker we have, a plan it is, the right plan and that plan is working, the. Honourable member for Elgin Middlesex, London, Thank You mr. speaker I would like to begin by thinking and welcoming, my MPP, Jeff York on his reelection it. Sucks. London sent a clear message by, rejecting, this carbon tax the Liberals have lost over half of their so-called provincial, support for the carbon tax the, Environment, Minister, has to realize that people aren't, buying into, this - these talking points Ontario. Will join Saskatchewan. And soon we'll, see Alberta opposing, these job-killing, carbon taxes. Spoken. Loud and clear when will the Prime Minister scrap his carbon tax. Thank, You mr. speaker, Canadians know that we can fight climate change and grow the economy at the same time as. Many of Canada's largest employers, have pointed out putting a price on carbon pollution is, just good business it's, already helping to build a clean growth economy, and to make Canadian, businesses more innovative, and more competitive businesses. Like New Flyer who make zero-emission buses and Winnipeg landmark. Homes who make energy-efficient, homes for Edmonton families they, know that pricing pollution encourages, innovation and will bring good, new middle-class jobs for Canadians the. Honourable member for sarnia-lambton. Mr.. Speaker this province, is spoken out against, the carbon, tax with, multiple, provinces in agreement the carbon, tax will hurt Canadians, hurt, our businesses, do nothing, for the planet, will, the Prime Minister, abandon, this ill-conceived. Plan or, be transparent. Enough to, let Canadians, know how much will force us to pay. Secretary. To the Minister. Speaker the. Conservatives, don't have a plan to address climate change they don't even seem to believe that climate change is real or that it's a problem and they are missing the boat on the enormous, opportunities, that will be enabled through addressing climate change in thoughtful and substantive ways the. World Bank the Peres has, indicated, that the Paris agreement will create 23. Trillion, dollars, in economic opportunities. Going forward you, know mr. speaker when they were in power the, Canada's, the share of the global clean tech markets shrunk by half it was a function of the fact that they did nothing to address climate change this government is going to grow the economy and, address climate change at the same time honourable. Member for Kitchener. Conestoga. Spoken. Clearly they, do not want, a carbon tax. To. Stop forcing is punishing carbon tax on middle-class Canadian families, farmers. In Kitchener Conestoga, are especially, concerned about this unfair tax which increases, their cost for tractor, fuel fertilizer. Transportation. Of feed and farm, products, well, the Prime Minister. Stop forcing, and, using his heavy-handed, taxes which are only needed because if his out-of-control, spending Thank, You mr. speaker the.
Honorable Parliamentary. Secretary, mr.. Speaker a comprehensive, approach to addressing climate change includes, regulatory, measures like phasing. Out of coal like, reducing, methane emissions it includes investments. In clean technology, and green, infrastructure, and it also includes, a price on carbon it, recent, study released showed that by 2030, a price, on carbon will reduce 80 to 90 megatons, of carbon emissions while stimulating, economic growth going forward the. Conservatives. Have not told us how they will actually address climate change because, many of them over there don't even believe in climate science it's, time for us to actually hear from the opposition about how they will actually put together a plan to address climate change our. For, Peace River in West log mr., speaker yesterday the voters on my Terrace in a clear message to this prime minister they. Don't. Want, his carbon, tax last, year, Saskatchewan, rejected. The liberal carbon tax and next year when Alberta elects Jason Kenney as premier albertans, will reject this terrible, tax the. Prime Minister has to Fort stop forcing, his carbon tax on Canadian families when will the Prime Minister listen, to Canadians, and abandon his terrible, carbon, tax. The. Conservative Party likes to repeat the question over and over again and I will repeat the similar answer which is a thoughtful, approach to addressing, climate change includes. Measures that are regulatory measures, it includes making significant, investments and it includes putting a price on pollution, to, incent, efficiency, to grow the economy and, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions Mr. Speaker we have a comprehensive plan Canadians, want us to address climate change in a thoughtful way they want us to ensure we're protecting the future for our children our grandchildren that's, exactly what we were going to do and the question that they have for the leader of the Opposition is where is your climate, plan. The Honourable member for South Okanagan, West Kootenai mr.. Speaker today is World, Oceans day and Canadians, are concerned, about the health of our coastal, waters but. Instead of investing, in in clean renewable, energy the. Liberals have just spent 4.5.
Billion Dollars our dollars, on an outdated pipeline, that threatens, our waterways that, while doing nothing to, address the catastrophic. Consequences. Of a bitch iment spill and when it comes to an oil spill the question is not if but when so. Why is this government forcing, this pipeline through when, they have no way for, protecting, our waters. The. Honourable parliamentary, secretary, to the minister the. NDP, indeed, applauded, premiers notley's, plan to protect the environment but it seems they forgot with that plan contained, let, me remind them a cap, on oil sands emissions, a price on pollution a pipeline. To get resources to Marcus other than the United States that. Is what is real leadership on climate change it looks like mr. speaker, and that's why we're putting a price on pollution phasing. Out coal and are investing, in clean technologies, progressive. Leaders like premier Notley get it and it's unfortunate, that the federal NDP, disagrees. With her thank you no, no I remember four ago, mr.. Speaker the Prime Minister likes to stir it around the international, stage bragging. About being a great champion, of the environment, he's. Lucky that not everyone, reads the Canadian papers because, they would quickly realize that instead, of doing what he says he. Took four and a half billion dollars of public money to buy, a pipeline. The. Liberals had promised, to be champions, of renewable energy why, are they breaking their promise why, are they investing, in the energies of the past rather than the energies, of the future. The. Honourable parliamentary, secretary, Thank, You mr. speaker and I think the member opposite for the question which allows me to talk about some of the work that we are doing, around protecting. Our environment and growing the economy including. A 1.5, billion dollar ocean its protections, plan. It's simply not the case that that. One. Can let. Me rephrase that that we believe that one can't, be done with the other that's. Why in, in. Addition, to putting a price on pollution we. Have a climate, change policy, that. Addresses all, of the opportunities, within the clean tech sector whether that is in nuclear, whether that is in bioenergy, whether, that is in oil and gas Thank. You mr. speaker, well member for Carlton trail Eagle, Creek mr., speaker whether, the Prime Minister, and his Environment, Minister want to accept it or not last. Night Ontarians. Overwhelmingly. Rejected, their carbon tax. In. The, fight against, this liberal, tax craft will. The Prime Minister learn from the lesson that has befallen his, friend the, former Premier. Kathleen Wynne and finally. Stopped forcing, his carbon tax on middle-class, Canadians. All across this country. Parliamentary. Secretary, to the Minister, of the Environment as. I've said Canadians, know that we can flight-or-fight climate, change and grow our economy at the same time many, of Canada's largest employers. Have endorsed, the concept of a price on carbon pollution it's, already, helping to build a clean growth economy, economy for Canada companies, like carbon cure and Nova Scotia companies. Like hydrogenic, sin Toronto, companies like General, fusion, or carbon. Engineering, in British Columbia these are companies that are part of the wave of clean growth that will enable Canada, to ensure that economic. Growth continues, going forward while we meet our international obligations, to address climate change member. For Yorkton, Melville, mr.. Speaker, it's a beautiful, sunny day in Canada, today why. Because. Last night Ontarians. Made the right choice for, a new beginning, in their province our conservative. Saskatchewan, members of parliament, welcome the new Ontario. Progressive Conservative. Government, as an. Of. Saskatchewan, in rejecting. This Liberal government's, carbon, tax will, the Prime Minister, now. Finally. Listen. To middle-class families. And scrap, his, carbon. Thank. You mr. speaker Canadians. Want, their, government to address the, climate issue in thoughtful ways, they. Want to ensure that we are addressing and reducing, greenhouse gas emissions in accordance, with our international. Commitments and they want us to do that in ways that, ensure that we grow an economy that will ensure prosperity for, Canadians in the future mr., mr. speaker that is what the pan-canadian framework, is about that we negotiated with the provinces and territories it's a comprehensive approach that will drive growth going forward and will allow us to address climate change I just. Want to remind the honourable members the rules again I know we've heard them before but when somebody's speaking it's not polite, or it's against the rules to actually, shout, at them so I'd, like to hear what the honourable question, is or the Honorable answer is the. Honourable member for acerous, Moose Mountain. Last. Night Ontarians, rejected, the liberal carbon tax in their election of a Progressive.
Conservative, Government, they, will join my province of Saskatchewan, and soon, Alberta in, rejecting, the Liberals and their carbon tax we. In Saskatchewan, know this plate all too well we. Welcome our new ally in the fight against the Prime Minister's job-killing, carbon, tax, when, will the Prime Minister's stop his attack on middle class families, and axe his carbon, tax. Secretaries. Thank. You mr. speaker as, I've said on a number of occasions Canadians. Expect their, government to address climate change in thoughtful, and substantive ways that, means ensuring that we have a comprehensive plan one that addresses, regulatory, issues such as accelerating. The phase-out of coal reducing. Methane emissions making, major investments in green infrastructure, and investments. To stimulate the growth of clean technology, in this country and it also includes. Putting, a price on pollution to, ensure that we're trying to address what we don't want and accelerating. The innovation that we do we, are focused, on ensuring a balanced, approach that will drive economic growth going forward but will also enable us to reduce Mena the Honourable member for Calgary Vigna poor. Mr.. Speaker yesterday voters, in Ontario, made it clear they are fed up with rising taxes. Including. The Liberals carbon, tax and we, also can be sure Alberta, will send the same message next. Year when voters elect, Jason. Kenney. Ministers. Start, listening, and stop, forcing his unaffordable. Job-killing. Carbon, tax on hardworking, middle-class, Canadian. Thank. You mr. speaker i'ma, change is real climate change, requires that we actually come up with thoughtful, and substantive, ways to address the issue it, involves, thinking about the economy of the future driving. Innovation, it looks at the key measures and the most significant, and and cost effective measures to actually reduce that one, of those is putting a price on carbon pollution I know on that side of the house that they were not they, were not in favor of learning. Based. On data in science over the past 10 years when they were in government but that but the price on carbon pollution has, been demonstrated internationally, as one of the most effective, and low-cost, ways to, address the carbon issue the.
