Justin Trudeau announced his carbon pricing scheme on Oct. 3 and it's worse than anyone could have expected.
The Liberal government will charge $10/ton of carbon dioxide by 2018, and will raise that price each year by $10 until 2022 - when the price of carbon will be $50/ton.
These prices are so steep that even allies of Trudeau and his government were shocked. Saskatchewan, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Nova Scotia's environment ministers all walked out of the environment ministers' meeting held in Montreal.
Even Rachel Notley issued a statement against the carbon tax.
