Carbon tax has been a hotly debated issue in the run-up to next month’s provincial election in Ontario, but most voters think it’s little more than a tax grab and a pointless, symbolic gesture that won’t actually do much to tackle climate change.

That’s according to a new Ipsos poll, conducted exclusively for Global News, in which 72 per cent of Ontarians said carbon taxes are just a tax grab, while 68 per cent dismissed them as a purely symbolic gesture.

The poll of 1,197 eligible voters found the sentiments to be largely prevalent across party lines — while Conservative voters (85 per cent) were most likely to label carbon taxes a tax grab, a majority of NDP (72 per cent) and Liberal (54 per cent) voters also felt the same.

So, even Canadians are starting to realize that this is a scam meant to take more money from citizens.
Carbon tax is quite simply a low-priority issue for Ontarians at the moment, according to Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos Global Affairs.

    Our Ignoramus-in-Chief is doing his part to combat global warming! Look at US gas prices! They’ll soar with tRump’s further destabilizing the middle east.

    I live in Ontario, and the carbon tax raises 1.8 billion in revenue.
    It is used to supplement the Ontario budget but does nothing to reduce carbon emissions.
    Most peoples share is about three hundred to 6 hundred dollars a year, and that amount taken out of the provincial economy is hurtful especially to the poor.
    No politician should vote for a carbon tax who does not know the current global temperature, the 20th-century global average or the names of three climatologists who believe in human-made climate change. If they know this information and still vote in favor of climate change, then their opinion is ideological and is based on belief not reason.
