It's worth reminding ourselves of the reasons to push back:
Finance Minister Joe Oliver: the "multibillion-dollar tax on everything"
Lorne Gunter: "Heaven help us ..."
BC, the first jurisdiction in North America to impose such a tax, is frequently held up by carbon tax pushers as a shining success. Aldyen Donnelly points out why that and related claims are a myth:
... BC Ministry of Finance budget documents show, clearly, that total demand for the B.C. carbon-taxed products grew faster after the carbon-tax was introduced than over almost every other similar timeframe between 1992 and 2008.
