Jenny Kwan in Question Period: Why won't big polluters pay?

On October 31, 2018, I rose in Question Period to ask: 

"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?"
