OTTAWA—Liberal MPs are accusing Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer of misleading the public by labelling the government's long-anticipated clean fuel standards a "secret tax."

The Conservative leader wrote an open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday, urging him to abandon the proposed rules that are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by mandating that fuels get cleaner each year after the standards are imposed in 2022.

Scheer called this proposal a "secret fuel tax" that will increase the cost of gas, even though the plan was announced in 2016 and has gone through public consultations for more than two years.
