BREAKING: Pierre Poilievre calls for motion of no confidence in Justin Trudeau to try to force election if Liberals don't cancel carbon tax hike

"I'm giving Trudeau one last chance to spike his hike," Poilievre said.

 On Wednesday, Pierre Poilievre announced that Conservatives will be introducing a motion of non-confidence in Justin Trudeau if he and the Liberals do not cancel the upcoming carbon tax hike.

He noted that if the prime minister fails to do so, the official opposition will try to force a "carbon tax election."

"I'm giving Trudeau one last chance to spike his hike," Poilievre said. "One last chance, and only one more day. Today I'm announcing that if Trudeau does not declare today an end to his forthcoming tax increases on food, gas, and heat, we will introduce a motion of non-confidence in the prime minister."

A motion of non-confidence is a procedural tool that can be used by lawmakers, in this case the House of Commons, to induce a vote to determine whether the holder of a particular office is capable of carrying out their duties.

The Conservatives' motion is set to be debated and voted on Thursday.

"It will read that the House declare non-confidence in the prime minister and his costly government for increasing the Carbon Tax by 23 percent on April 1 as part of his plan to quadruple the tax while Canadians cannot afford to eat, heat, and house themelves, and call for the House to be dissolved so Canadians can vote in a 'carbon tax election'." 

Poilievre went on to highlight the differences between his party and the "carbon tax coalition of the NDP and Justin Trudeau," noting that while the former will work for Canadians, the latter will continue to "take your money, punish your work, tax your food, double your housing costs, and unleash crime and chaos in your community."
