Dont take my word....listen to libs themselves. Poor slubs of citizens still have to pay them though... GUEST COLUMN: The Liberals have now admitted the carbon tax is a job-killer The government quietly posted a document online indicating that 80%-90% of greenhouse gas emissions of large industrial corporations would be exempt from the tax. The reason? The government wants to avoid high costs that push industrial production out of Canada to places without carbon taxes. But wait; McKenna has told us all along that the carbon tax would actually help our economy. Now she accepts it could simply move business, jobs and emissions out of Canada to more polluting countries where the emissions would ironically be higher.
