Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre Calls on Government to Table Cost of Carbon Tax

Conservative finance critic Pierre Poilievre speaks to reporters on Parliament Hill about his opposition day motion that calls on the federal government to table, by June 22, 2018, how much its proposed carbon tax will cost Canadian families. Under the federal carbon pricing plan, rates will increase annually to $50 per tonne by 2022. The Conservatives are threatening to force an overnight voting marathon on nearly 200 opposed votes to the main estimates if the government does not support the motion.
