March 28, 2022 — With the Liberal-NDP carbon tax set to increase by 33 percent on April 1, United Conservatives are introducing a Motion in the Legislature to take a stand against any further carbon tax hikes on working Alberta families and send a clear message.
The Liberal-NDP alliance must stop their planned carbon tax hike on everyday families. We need to be looking at ways to make life more affordable for Albertans, not more expensive.
Under Jason Kenney’s leadership, the UCP is not only fighting the Liberal-NDP carbon tax but is also taking action to provide relief to Albertans. That includes stopping collection of the provincial gas tax on April 1 saving 13 cents per litre, issuing a $150 electricity rebate and bringing in a program to protect against high natural gas prices.
