The Canadian Taxpayers Federation doesn’t think much of the carbon tax. It has started a petition opposing the major plank in Dion’s Green shift plan.
“A carbon tax or trading scheme would be bad for Canada,” stated CTF Acting Federal Director Adam Taylor. “It would drive up the cost of heating your home, increase the price you pay at the pumps and make the cost of anything and everything transported to store shelves go up. These tax policies will be particularly onerous in Canada where temperatures are cold, travel distances are significant and the manufacturing sector is already suffering. Energy prices are high enough in Canada.”
