Green Shift - Revenue Neutral?

Stephane Dion's old Green Shift plan for new carbon taxes, grants and some tax cuts was alleged by him to be revenue neutral.

It is now being reported he will 'tweak' it with another billion dollars of grants and subsidies.

Question: If it was revenue neutral before and he has now added another $1 billion of costs, how can it be revenue neutral.

Voters will really need to see some math from him on this plan. This is why many often refer to crazy math as 'Liberal Math'.

With the Green Shift craziness, there seems to be less and less prssue for the Conservative to explain their emissions reduction scheme and it cost impacts. Too bad.
