Change plans

The Intelligencer (Belleville) - - OPINION -

Thank you for dis­cussing how our gov­ern­ments are ad­dress­ing cli­mate change. I’m sure many read­ers are con­cerned about this, as I am, par­tic­u­larly as a par­ent and grand­par­ent.

They de­serve the full pic­ture on what the Dec. 3 Point of View ‘ On­tario has cred­i­ble cli­mate change plan’ calls “this new tax Trudeau is im­pos­ing.” Of course, the costs will come back to us. The same can be said for the cost of reg­u­la­tions and sub­si­dies the Con­ser­va­tives are ( strangely) ad­vo­cat­ing in­stead of car­bon pric­ing.

But revenue from the fed­eral green­house gas pol­lu­tion pric­ing goes not to Trudeau, but to us. No use deny­ing this be­cause ev­ery­one will dis­cover it when they see the Cli­mate Ac­tion In­cen­tive Pay­ment ( to them) when do their taxes. Maybe then more will see where the op­po­si­tion to this is re­ally com­ing from: the same that has been in the way of ac­tion to stop global warm­ing the past 30 years — Big Fos­sils.
