This is an article about the new tax that is being proposed in Canada by the Green party to discourage use of gasoline. A great many of my readers are in the US so I thought I would do the math for you. In the US that would be the same as adding 45.42 CENTS PER GALLON!
The Green party wants Canadian drivers to pay an extra 12 cents a litre at the gas pumps as the price of averting environmental “catastrophe.”
Leader Elizabeth May “Right now, the Green Party of Canada is the only Canadian political party prepared to state this obvious reality.” … “If we stop being with the rest of the world and start siding with George Bush, we are global saboteurs and that’s what Mr. Harper is doing right now in Germany.”
