Environment Minister Steven Guilbeault will not release letters he claimed to receive from Canadians grateful for the carbon tax. Guilbeault said he had thank-you notes from a woman named Jill in Regina and “Bob, a teacher.”
Conservative MP Dan Mazier (Dauphin-Swan River, Man.), whose criticism of the tax prompted the Minister’s claim, questioned the correspondence. “I don’t recall ever receiving a piece of carbon tax fan mail from a Canadian,” said Mazier.
