Carbon tax ineffective

Re: ‘Effective’ tool, April 22

Ron Moore is an avid supporter of the Liberal carbon tax, but where is the evidence that it works to lower carbon emissions? British Columbia has had a carbon tax since 2007, with the goal of reducing emissions by 33% by 2020, but they have actually increased by 6% by 2018, the latest year for which data is available.

As for Erin O’Toole embracing a carbon tax, he won the Conservative Party leadership by pretending to be a “true blue” Conservative, but has since shown himself to be anything but.
