Bell: Team Trudeau doesn't fear backlash over carbon tax

Amarjeet Sohi. He’s Trudeau’s point man on pipelines and he is from Alberta.

And we all know Trudeau’s Ottawa and Alberta could soon be on one hell of a collision course.

We’re paying the Notley carbon tax. But if Jason Kenney and the United Conservatives win power in a few months, they’ve said Job No. 1 is to scrap the carbon tax — and quickly.

We also know, when that happens, the Trudeau government is expected to step in and impose their own carbon tax.

Does Sohi fear a backlash? You know, from folks who think Ottawa should keep its nose out of our business.

After all, most Albertans don’t like the Notley carbon tax let alone a Trudeau replacement carbon tax.

Apparently Sohi fears not. In fact, he talks up the Trudeau carbon tax the feds would impose.

“Every penny collected in each province is returned in a climate change rebate,” says the minister of natural resources.

Sohi says if your costs go up by $400 because of the carbon tax you will get back “much more” than $400. And everybody gets the dough, no matter how much money they make.

“You get more than you spend,” he says.

Wow! That sounds........
