(May 11, 2022) – David Brazil, PC Official Opposition Leader and MHA for Conception Bay East-Bell Island, says the PC Opposition Caucus is taking a stand against yet another tax increase in Newfoundland and Labrador.

“The Liberal Government today introduced legislation to add more tax on fuel in Newfoundland and Labrador. Enough is enough. The people of our province cannot afford more increases to the cost of living. The Liberal Government doesn’t understand that, which is why they are introducing today’s legislation,” said Brazil.

“People cannot afford to make ends meet and the increases to the cost of living continue under this Liberal government. We will stand for the people of Newfoundland and Labrador and do everything possible to block this carbon tax increase.”

Brazil says the people of Newfoundland and Labrador are at the breaking point under the pressure of the cost of living in our province.

“Every day the PC Opposition Caucus is hearing from everyday Newfoundlanders and Labradorians who simply don’t know how they’re going to make ends meet. The Liberals only idea is to raise taxes. Again and again, they’ve raised the cost of living in Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Brazil.

“These increases aren’t sustainable. People are forced to choose between driving to work, buying groceries for their family, and essential medication. Yet, the Liberals are today planning to further increase the cost of living in our province. The people have had enough. Our caucus has had enough. We will fight this increase.”
