Argument: A carbon tax will cost all taxpayers, not just polluters
- Debate: Carbon tax - con argument.
"Carbon tax a bad idea". Vernon Morning Star. 8 Aug. 2008 - "we believe the polluters should pay, not the Canadian taxpayer. The proposed Liberal “Green Shift” plan does not put into place legislation that would set mandatory targets for industry and the plan has no incentive for industry to cut emissions. It sounds just great: if we all pay just a little more tax the government can address the environmental issues facing the country."
