Ontario Premier Doug Ford is warning that the federal government's carbon tax risks triggering a recession, but it's hard to find economists eager to back up his claim.
"I'm here today to ring the warning bell that the risk of a carbon tax recession is very, very real."
Ford did not offer any details in the speech about how the carbon pricing scheme would lead to recession.
Do they want @JustinTrudeau's carbon tax that will kill jobs and make everything more expensive? This will not likely be the last time you hear the phrase "carbon tax recession" from Ford.
