“This is what Canadians expect us to do” – the Trudeau Liberals’ Confusion on Energy Policy

“This is what Canadians expect us to do” – the Trudeau Liberals’ Confusion on Energy Policy

During his national town hall tour in January of this year, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made a stop in Peterborough, Ontario where a distraught woman tearfully recounted that her electricity bills were now greater than her mortgage payments. Despite working more than 75 hours a week, the woman, Kathy Katula, said she feared losing her home and that, despite earning $50,000 a year, she was now, “living in energy poverty.” Katula asked Trudeau how he could justify imposing a carbon tax on people like her who are struggling to keep their heads above water.
