Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Andrew Furey’s call to delay the carbon tax is a sign he is caving to political pressure.

“I think Mr. Furey is continuing to bow to political pressure,” Trudeau said in response to a question about Furey’s stance during an event in Montreal on Friday morning. “I think Canadians in Newfoundland and Labrador and right across the country expect their governments to do the right thing.”

Trudeau said that meant fighting climate change and spurring technological innovation. He said the carbon tax rebate was financially beneficial for roughly eight in 10 Canadians.

“It’s basic math,” he said.
