When Will Big Oil Pay Their Fair Share?

Mr. Speaker, earlier today my colleague, the member for Victoria, asked similar questions and did not receive a good response, so I will ask this member. In terms of output-based pricing, New Democrats do not believe it is fair. We do believe in carbon pricing. However, Suncor pays 14 times less than an average Canadian in carbon pricing.

Why will the government not make big oil companies pay what they owe and pay their fair share?
