Quebec has become the first province to introduce a so-called carbon tax.
Quebec Natural Resources Minister Claude Bechard says this will not affect the wallets of Quebec citizens because the energy industry will absorb the cost. Says Bechard: "We count on the good will of the gas companies."
Isn't it interesting how politicians refuse to cut gas taxes stating that oil companies will gobble up the savings yet when they raise taxes the same companies are expected to absorb the costs?! Interesting logic M. Bechard...
