Presently, the Australian Federal Government is engaged in pricing carbon with intent to implement a Carbon Tax.
This is in direct violation to assertions during the last election campaign that there would be no Carbon Tax during this parliament.
Further, with ever-increasing pressures on Australian household incomes, we believe this is an inopportune time to begin increasing costs of living.
We, the undersigned, call upon the Australian Federal Government, under the leadership of Julia Gillard, to postpone the introduction of a carbon price and subsequent tax or Emissions Trading Scheme until after the next federal election.
It is our belief that the introduction of such measures during this parliament represents a betrayal of the trust of the Australian people and is a policy worthy of bringing to an election, rather than introducing mid-term.
