Is Trudeau’s climate plan a recession?

The more I listen to federal Liberal politicians talking about climate change, the more worried I become.

Federal Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna, for example, in her calls for a national carbon price to lower industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change, doesn’t seem to be aware of two key issues.

The first is that any province imposing a cap-and-trade scheme on emissions — such as Ontario — doesn’t know what its carbon price will be.

The second is that any province imposing a carbon tax — such as Alberta — doesn’t now how much it will lower emissions, if at all.
