Establishment hobgoblin Jean Charest commits to carbon tax if made Conservative leader
The Post Millennial: 'Conservative leadership candidate Jean Charest expressed his support for a price on carbon during a CTV interview Saturday. "I support a policy that is going to bring to the table, Alberta, the provinces and the oil and gas industry so that we can develop policies that we can actually implement," Charest said.
'"And it'll include a price on carbon, but it will not discriminate against rural Canadians. It won't be a wealth transfer tax. It will be a policy that is smart, intelligent, that allows us to develop carbon sequestration to develop hydrogen, whether green or blue or small modular reactors and biofuels and hydro. That's the smart thing that Conservatives can do." As the Liberal Premier of Quebec, Charest supported a carbon tax. This position has been criticized by Pierre Poilievre, who is also running to be Conservative leader and is staunchly against any form of a carbon tax.'
Laurentian elitists sure love waging war against the Canadian working class, particularly in the West.
