Wynne’s plan is cap-and-tax

If Premier Kathleen Wynne prices industrial carbon dioxide emissions by setting up a cap-and-trade market in Ontario, it will be a disaster for taxpayers.

It will be a bigger disaster than the Liberals’ green energy fiasco.

And that’s saying a lot since former auditor general Jim McCarter said in his 2011 annual report that the Liberals had introduced renewable energy so incompetently, that taxpayers and hydro consumers will be paying billions of dollars more for electricity than they otherwise would have, for decades to come.

The Liberals will claim cap-and-trade isn’t a carbon tax. Don’t be fooled.

God help us, the Liberals are putting together another scam.
