Celebrating Work

Let’s celebrate the important value of work on Labor Day—and demand that our governments stop killing jobs through their taxes, climate action plans and regulations and let people invest, trade, and work freely.

No Business Should Cheer a Carbon Tax

No Business Should Cheer a Carbon Tax

Telus doesn’t get that its role is the creation of material values (cell phone service), not encouraging more taxation. On the contrary, it should oppose the carbon tax and any other taxes as they destroy human welfare.

Taking this freedom away also severely undermines companies’ ability to create material values.
