Carbon credit fraud no laughing matter #elxn42

Regardless of which party wins the Oct. 19 federal election, Canadians can look forward to being ripped off for billions of dollars in the international carbon trading market.

Carbon trading is intrinsic to both NDP Leader Tom Mulcair’s and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau’s carbon pricing plans, since both would use cap-and-trade schemes, supposedly to reduce Canada’s industrial greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

But even Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservatives — the least worst of the three major parties on this issue — have proposed buying international carbon credits to meet the government’s emission reduction targets.
