Cheap gas or money in pock­ets?

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - OPINION -

On­tario could have slightly cheaper gas and be en­cour­aged to in­crease car­bon pol­lu­tion.

Al­ter­na­tively, pol­lu­tion could be taxed and the tax rev­enues sent right back to fam­i­lies. Prime Min­is­ter Trudeau has promised to do just that in On­tario. Rev­enue neu­tral car­bon pric­ing sounds like a great al­ter­na­tive to costly and in­ef­fec­tive sub­si­dies and more reg­u­la­tions.

Bri­tish Columbia has done this for years. Car­bon emis­sions are down and our econ­omy is boom­ing. I hope Mr. Ford will con­sider this when he de­vel­ops his strat­egy how to deal with car­bon pol­lu­tion. Judy O’Leary Nel­son, BC
