A joint audit conducted by the federal environment commissioner and auditors general from nine provinces, found that federal and provincial carbon tax plans aren’t doing what the government tells us they’re meant to do; reduce GHGs.
Canada's auditors general found that most governments in Canada are not on track to meet their commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Making a bad report even worse for McKenna, the auditors found the federal government didn’t show that existing regulations to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions would meet their 2020 target.
Of course not. We know McKenna’s carbon tax is a cash grab and not designed to do anything else.
In fairness, the criticism directed at Alberta wasn't any nicer.
The report found Alberta’s implementation plan didn’t include an overall emissions target or even a rationale for not having one, or expected results, or clear roles and responsibilities and mechanisms for coordination, didn’t detail significant areas of risk, or have mechanisms to monitor and even evaluate progress.
In Alberta, it’s a sales tax, cloaked in environmentalism. The only performance measure is how much extra money Rachel Notley has to waste.
