impôt de carbone

And so it begins. This is a first in Canada.

Natural Resources Minister Claude Bechard said he hopes the oil companies, who are reporting record profits, would absorb the tax, which he said is based on the principle polluters pays.
Good luck with that.

And I ask why should any private company sacrifice its profits (yes, companies are actually in business to make profits for their shareholders) in order to relieve a politician of the responsibilty for an idiotic tax increase?
