Parliament Video: Jenny in the House: 1 tonne of carbon emissions only costs $1 for big polluters

On October 31, 2018, Jenny rose and asked this question:

Jenny Kwan (NDP) Vancouver East, BC

"Mr. Speaker, in 2015, Liberals promised to protect our environment and make polluters pay once and for all. However, this weekend, the Liberals defied all logic with a new plan that lets some of the largest and wealthiest polluters pay less than $1 per tonne of emissions. The Liberals want to put a price on pollution but will not actually make polluters pay. Conservative premiers call for a buck a beer. The Liberal Prime Minister calls for a buck a tonne.

Liberal, Tory, same old story. Does the Prime Minister actually think he is a real climate leader?"
