Digging down Ontario’s cap and trade plan

With Premier Kathleen Wynne announcing yet again on Friday that Ontario will join the California/Quebec cap and trade carbon pricing market Jan. 1 — today, let’s consider some important questions.

For example, will it work? Will it effectively lower Ontario’s industrial greenhouse gas emissions linked to climate change, given that we’re paying for it?

The government says cap and trade will cost the average Ontario household $156 this year alone

    And of course the sheep in Ontario don’t seem excited that she has set aside 5 million dollars of taxpayer money, to run ads about how great she is running the hydro system, during next year’s election.

    • Ontario is toast.

    Sure let’s tie our economic futures to California, an insolvent state that would be bankrupt if it were legal for states to declare as such, and Quebec, a province that receives almost 2.5 times more in equalization payments then they contribute to. Sounds like a solid plan to prevent people from breathing out what plants breath in.

    Once you accommodate or co-opt almost all the powerful rent seekers, you can usually rule as long as other peoples money is theftable.

  • Ontario will become completely unlivable before one knows it.
