Maverick Party Launches ANTI-CARBON TAX petition requesting a moratorium for the winter

A petition (on behalf of all Canadians) requesting a moratorium from collecting the federal Carbon Tax for Q1 of 2022 was launched by the Maverick Party today.

With Christmas just around the corner, many Canadians are looking at their household budgets and trying to figure out how to feed their families, put fuel in their vehicles, buy gifts, and pay their rent or mortgage.

The petition is aimed to give Canadians a break from the carbon tax from January 1st to April 1st, 2022 – the most expensive months for heating our homes.

Inflation is at an 18 year high (that will impact loans, mortgage rates and credit card interest rates), and the Federal Carbon Tax is making the cost of life’s necessities more expensive than ever. The tax will continue to increase every year until 2030.

O’Toole and the Conservatives have done nothing to oppose this devastating tax.

Maverick understands that the cost of living is increasing at a pace that families can't keep up with. Many Canadians will soon have to choose between food on their tables or heat in their homes and we at Maverick believe that's an unacceptable choice to have to make.

The reality is, that Canadians can no longer afford to pay the increased costs associated with Carbon Tax. It's simply too much. The Maverick Party has always opposed the Federal Carbon Tax.

The government should be looking for simple ways to help Canadians get through what will be the most expensive winter in memory.

Canadians are drowning financially and action is required now!


The petition reads:

Petition to the parliament of Canada

Inflation is escalating dramatically and Canadians are being forced to choose between food on their tables or heat in their homes. Rising costs are putting immense stress onto Canadian families.

Carbon taxes are arguably meant to change behaviour. Yet, higher commodity prices are doing that already without the added extra burden of unnecessary taxation.

The federal government can alleviate some of the burden by declaring a Carbon Tax moratorium on New Year's Day 2022.

We call on Canada’s Parliament to suspend collecting their Carbon Tax from January 1st until April 1st, 2022 and give Canadian’s a break!

Sign here to tell Canada’s Parliament to give Canadians a break from the Carbon Tax!

Will you sign?


At 10,000 signatures, Maverick will send the petition to Trudeau and every single sitting Member of Parliament.
