GreenShift or GreenShaft?


Finally, the Liberals launched a new website featuring Dion’s long-awaited carbon tax “plan” (downloadable PDF file of the booklet and brochure) now re-branded as a “Green Shift.”

Time to start digging into the details… Talking heads for the Canadian Taxpayer’s Federation are of course already bitching about it. A “Green Shaft” according to them; it’s nothing but a giant tax grab that will hurt the dreaded “soccer moms” and “hockey dads”… consumers and families are going to get screwed, yada yada yada…Well, perhaps. We shall see if sense can be made of it.
