PM’s carbon taxes disconnected from reality

Toronto Sun: Goldstein: 'Starting next year, Trudeau’s Clean Fuel Standard alone, according to an impact analysis done by the federal government itself, will raise the price of gasoline by six to 13 cents per litre and the price of diesel fuel by seven to 16 cents per litre by 2030.

'Accounting for direct and indirect costs — because hiking the cost of gasoline and diesel fuel raises the price of almost everything — the government estimates it will cost the average Canadian household between $132 and $301 annually by 2030, with an average of $220.

'This will increase energy poverty in Canada, the impact analysis says, and will be felt disproportionately by low and middle-income Canadians, seniors on fixed incomes, single mothers, rural Canadians, Canadians working in the oil and gas sector and Canadians living in Atlantic Canada, who spend a higher proportion of their income on transportation compared to other provinces.'
