Carbon pricing about cash, not climate

How can you tell if Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Canada’s premiers are sincere about fighting climate change through carbon pricing, as opposed to just taking more of our money for their governments?

The answer is if they favour genuinely revenue neutral carbon pricing — either through carbon taxes or cap-and-trade — they’re sincere.

If not, then they’re just using carbon pricing as the pretext for a cash grab.
