Carbon Taxes

Saw the piece in the Telegraph Journal yesterday (Feb 20) highlight the announcement of carbon taxes in BC. This is awesome news, not just because a government in Canada finally took the economist's advice, but because the BC government implemented tax-shifting as part of the program.

First they fought the issue of climate change. Now they fight the cost battle - it would be too much for us to deal with climate change, let your governments deal with the consequences.

I wrote a letter to the Irving papers highlighting the importance of tax-shifting. We'll see if it gets published.

Don't let them tell you it can't be done!
