Green shift vignette

Posted 6/13/2008 by Grant Mitchell


Interesting how the Conservatives keep saying that they oppose a carbon tax. Yet they happily continue to collect the 10 cent per litre federal gas tax. That just happens to work out to a tax on carbon of $43 per tonne. So, does all their angst about taxing carbon mean that they are going to cancel this tax? No. Does it mean that they will at least make it revenue neutral by reducing income and corporate taxes by an equal amount? No.


How anachronistic, old, oh so yesterday, and tired to tax what we want, income and profit, and give pollution a free ride. Strange how the Conservatives try to make upside down look right side up.
