Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is accusing Newfoundland and Labrador’s Liberal premier of giving in to “political pressure” for joining other provincial leaders in criticizing the April 1 carbon tax increase.

Premier Andrew Furey penned an open letter earlier this week asking Ottawa to pause the 23 percent tax increase, saying Canadians are already living under incredible “financial strain.”
Mr. Trudeau described Mr. Furey’s letter as proof that the Newfoundland and Labrador premier is “continuing to bow to political pressure.”
