“With respect, Michael, I am not in this race to out-Liberal the Liberals,” said fellow leadership candidate and Ontario MP Erin O’Toole, a former minister of veterans affairs, who told the debate audience that he would scrap any federal carbon tax imposed by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
O’Toole told The Daily Caller that “Chong has bought-in to the Liberal notion that you help the environment by raising taxes, despite the fact that average Canadians are not the problem. I like Michael a lot, but creating a new tax and running a large deficit to do it is not a conservative plan,” he said.
