Reporters had been asking Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for several days to clarify the status of the carbon tax and on Wednesday he finally confirmed that the government wasn’t willing to budge. “We know that we need to do things to make sure that we’re both supporting families through ordinary times and through difficult times and moving forward on continuing the fight against climate change, which remains even at a time of immediate crisis and pandemic,” Trudeau said, admitting the increase would go ahead as planned.
