Wynne’s carbon tax cap-and-trade scheme just another tax

Earlier today, Premier Kathleen Wynne announced that Ontario is implementing a cap-and-trade system.

Marissa Semkiw explains why this is just another tax — one that will hit working- and middle-class Ontarians particularly hard.

          They all died of CO2 starvation.

    Tax and tax and tax.
    Ontario is becoming the California of Canada.

    • Clausewitz

      On a per capita basis, Ontario passed that point long ago.

      • Yup California is the picture of fiscal responsibility next to Ontario.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Becoming? We are already in more debt per capita than California. Ontario is sliding down the tubes faster than California now.

    This is not the way to reduce emissions. Hydrogen and more nukes will provide enough energy until the next Ice Age.

    Tax. Tax. Tax.

    Whatever they need to do get revenue from an already-burdened population.

    The ruling Liberal Party of Ontario is like a father who wastes the grocery money at the track and has to come up with new lies & money to make up for the grocery money he spent on the ponies.

      Biggest scam of the century so far. I have every confidence that they can do better than this.

  • Robert McCall

    Just because it needs to be said…”Thank you very much to all of you fekking, imbecilic, left-wing Liberal wankers in Toronto for saddling us with this corrupt, deviant, poor excuse for a government!”

      They really are a brainwashed bunch. When speaking about serious issues they come back with high schoolish Jon Stewart comments.

      George Bush! Churches! ……….

      Let us know how funny it is when all the jobs leave Ontario.
