Pierre Poilievre promises to abolish carbon tax and stop fraternizing with the WEF at Ottawa Axe the Tax Rally

"The good news is: life was not like this in Canada before Justin Trudeau and it won’t be like this after."


Official Opposition and Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) leader Pierre Poilievre brought his carbon tax revolt to Ottawa Sunday.

Poilievre, the only CPC Member of Parliament with a seat in the nation’s capital, has been hosting “Axe the Tax” and “Spike the Hike” rallies across Canada. This was his first stop in Ottawa, where the increasingly hated carbon tax was created by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, supposedly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by taxing gas at the pumps and home heating fuel. The tax will be increased by 23 percent on Apr. 1 and this most recent hike has spawned the Conservative protest rallies.

Almost 70 percent of Canadians are now opposed to the the tax as well as seven out of 10 provinces. Although Trudeau claims Canadians receive at least an equal amount of money back in the “Canadian carbon rebate,” that claim is demonstrably untrue.

Maybe that’s why about 3,000 jammed the Infinity Convention Centre near the Ottawa airport as part of what Poilievre described as “a nationwide campaign” that he says includes “rallies and towns villages, countless protesting outside the offices of liberal MPs, urging them to do the right thing.”

Although Poilievre used much of his presentation explaining the economic effects of the carbon tax, he also spent time castigating Trudeau for being out of touch with Canadians and obsessed with his own agenda.

He joked Trudeau’s recent admission that he thinks about quitting a job he finds “super boring.”

“Yeah, it's really exhausting, flying down to beautiful private islands, using a private jet paid for by taxpayers, pumping tons and tons of greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere while he lectures little old ladies for heating their homes,” Poilievre told the cheering crowd.

“Life is really tough and he says he thinks about quitting every day,” Poilievre stopped to wait for applause to soften. “That's why we think about firing you every day!”

In what might have been an election campaign moment, the Conservative leader outlined his strategy for attracting voters in the upcoming October 2025 federal election.

“Commonsense conservatives will unite and fight for freedom,” he said. “We will repeal the censorship laws, [Bill] C-11, we will protect the rights of parents to protect their kids and stand by their values”

“I will hold my ministers and my MPs from any involvement in the World Economic Forum,” Poilievre declared.

“We will shut down the Beijing-controlled police stations, We will ban the Iranian controlled terrorists, the IRGC. We will stand with our Jewish friends and neighbors against the terrorists.”

To show how the carbon tax effects average Canadian, Poilievre pointed to the agriculture sector where Trudeau plans to raise “the carbon tax by 2030 up to 150 grand in carbon taxes for every single farm in Canada.”

He noted that by shutting down Canada’s fossil fuel industry, Trudeau “is actually harming our pocketbooks by harming our environment at the same time … he's driving production towards dirty polluting foreign dictatorships. We want to bring the production home.”

The Conservative leader also addressed the housing crisis in Canada, saying Canada has “been rated by UBS bank and as the worst housing bubble in the world for 2022. Vancouver is the third most expensive place on planet earth when you compare housing prices to medium income. We have tent cities in every single town and village and countryside of this country. We have 35 homeless encampments in the beautiful city of Halifax.”

Poilievre also referenced a secret report from the RCMP that says Canadians might take to the streets to oppose the Trudeau government.

“After eight years eight years of Trudeau we have the RCMP writing a secret intelligence report warning.that if people wake up to how broke they are there might be an all-out revolt that will destabilize our institutions.”

“That’s not me saying it,” Poilievre continued, “that’s the national police force that noted and calculated how brutally broke we are in this country after eight years of a prime minister who's doubled the debt, who's given us the worst inflation for decades, who’s printed $600 billion of cash.”

“My friends, the good news is: life was not like this in Canada before Justin Trudeau and it won’t be like this after.”

The Conservative leader also reiterated his promise to defund the CBC – drawing an extended ovation from the crowd.
