On March 30th 2023, MP Anna Roberts rose to ask a pressing question on behalf of seniors who are struggling in the current economic climate. MP Anna Roberts stated that the upcoming increase in taxes by the Liberal government, particularly the carbon tax, will further exacerbate the situation, causing an increase in the cost of gas, heating and groceries.

MP Anna Roberts highlighted the case of Carmela, a senior citizen who is finding it hard to put food on the table each week and often skips meals to make ends meet. MP Anna Roberts went on to say that the upcoming increase in the carbon tax will only make things worse for seniors like Carmela.

MP Anna Roberts asked whether the Liberal government will cancel the planned increase of the carbon tax this Saturday, in order to ease the burden on seniors and others who are struggling.
