Many Albertans think the carbon tax is accompanied by a giant sucking sound as the government empties their pockets at the pump. To others it’s not only the right thing to do but it also helps get crude to tidewater. Love it or loathe it, it’s here. This is where your carbon tax dollars are going.

    How much is used for the administration of the tax itself?

    Based on the charts you have provided it confirms what many small businesses in this province believe. They will have created a 6.2 billion dollar socialist slush fund. Undoubtedly, some of it will be used in late 2018 and early 2019 to try and bribe voters with their own money, with the purpose of getting them elected. Mind you to be fair, it is a tool favoured by political parties of every stripe. Unfortunately, it is successful more than it is not, which of course means they will keep doing it.
    I am old enough to know there is no such a thing as ‘free lunch’ but there are still lots of people in this province now who believe or want to believe that it is true; that’s how they got elected. Of course there was no mention of a carbon tax when the were campaigning. Which then reminds me of the old saying; ‘how do you know when a politician is lying; their lips are moving!’
