There is nothing “revenue neutral” about the regressive BC Carbon Tax.

The BC Liberal Party introduced the Carbon Tax in 2008 and defended it for over 8 years with plans to raise it. Now the BC New Democratic Party, with the support of the BC Green Party, have pledged to raise it. It is a regressive tax that hurts the middle class and doesn't do what it's supposed to do.

Enough is enough!

    B.C. budget acknowledges the carbon tax was not revenue neutral

    The addition of the new tax measures are projected to make the carbon tax revenue neutral starting in 2017/18. However, based on our calculations, British Columbians are still on track to experience a $599 million net tax hike from 2013/14 to 2016/17, as the carbon tax does not appear to be revenue neutral in those years.
