    Thank you for the quick and concise summary Elizabeth.
    I’m a little late but listening to the budget announcement now. Really disappointed to read about no change to fossil fuel subsidies or taxation on food products that are harming our communities

  • Robert Contardi

    I sent Trudeau an email voicing my objection to the carbon tax he imposed. Simply- no one has been able to show hard facts that this approach has any significant impact on carbon emissions. Regulation (site California) as well as support for clean technologies has greater impact.
    So here we have a carbon tax which hurts lower income of our society yet we subsidize fossil fuels?
    In BC we have a carbon tax– no one knows where it goes, what it does- yet government does not support a clean technology ( one example: Ballard power) that would greatly impact carbon and pollution especially in trucks/ buses . As well , no money has been spent on properly expanding commuter transportation . I believe if this is done properly — this would reduce the number of cars on the roads in major cities across Canada. Why not charge road tolls on all bridges and some roads ? At least this would raise money to invest in clean energy options ?
    Fossil fuels may be here longer than what we want , unless politician’s stop being politically correct and use their common sense — with the new technologies there are many viable options that will get us on the right path if properly thought out and managed.

    that he has imposed
