CARBON TAX INFORMATION SESSION:

The facts about the carbon tax and carbon emissions are surrounded by myths and unfounded claims. Yet the federal government is pushing through policy that could have huge consequences on the entire Australian economy.

It’s vital that the public is fully informed about the facts of Australia’s carbon emissions and the effect a carbon tax will have on Australia’s economy and families.

That’s why we’re coming to see you!
