Eliminate this useless tax grab. Carbon theory has not been proven and the carbon tax is not doing anything for the environment. Enforce emissions standards and reduce man-made chemical toxins in the air, soil and water.
We believe the current carbon pricing policy for BC is appropriate for the time being, and should remain at $30 per tonne of emissions in BC until at least the end of 2020 at which time the rest of the country will have theoretically raised their carbon taxes to the same levels at BC. We believe such a public policy is prudent particularly given the uncertainty around potential competitive disadvantage against the USA with the new Trump administration’s relaxation of carbon pricing. We also support the establishment of an independent national panel of experts to report in 2021 on the current status of all provincial carbon pricing programs and to provide recommendations for moving forward. Our party will only support an ongoing national carbon pricing program in which our province is not financially disadvantaged compared to any other province in Canada.
