EDITORIAL: Will a Carbon Tax Work? #cdnpoli

A carbon tax will not work, it is just as well to say what we are all thinking.

No, it's not only that it won't work because it is a new tax, but because it doesn't make any sense.

Imagine for a second every time gas prices got so high we stopped driving our vehicles. We don't do that because we need our vehicles to get from place to place.

A carbon tax will be ineffective in helping the environment because in the world that we live in we will continue to use products that emit greenhouse gases.

Rather than a carbon tax perhaps we should try planting a tree or investing some money into green energy projects.
