It's just dawning on some people that the carbon tax may be a "no go" politically. No kidding Sherlock, that's why the original in BC was revenue neutral. Carbon tax revenue was - by law - offset by reductions in personal and business taxes. But now that's changed with both BC and Alberta taking the money collected into general revenues.

Too many people yawn and roll their eyes when they hear that the Phoenix Pay System debacle will cost taxpayers $2.2 billion tax dollars.  If you're one of them I invite you to consider that money is enough to provide new housing for every homeless person in Western Canada or reduce waiting times for surgery for thousands of people.

It's a bit much to see the anti-corporate brigade on their cell phones and Facebook. It's more than clueless to not understand that it's the economies of scale through big business that makes products affordable to the average person.

Blame Capitalism Is The Familiar Refrain But It's BS
