His scheme is intended to make the polluters pay, but guess what? The buck stops at the person staring back at you in the mirror.
The new plan would mean polluting industries could see their top-line expenses grow by $2.5-billion a year if they miss their emission targets.
Canadians who scoff at pleas of poverty from the oil and gas industry may be less smug when they learn the electricity industry is already contemplating passing on the estimated $1-billion in annual extra costs to consumers.
"Sure we would," said Hans Konow, president of the Canadian Electricity Association. "This is added cost that would be passed through."
This will just end up being another behemoth Liberal boondoggle, designed to line the pockets of everyone except you and me. The irony is that it doesn't even necessarily guarantee results in terms of reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Jason Kenney calls this plan a 'lemon'.
The Liberal party sure picked one.
