Re: “Canadians are worried about the future of jobs,” (The Hill Times, Dec. 10). David Crane wants the economic pie more fairly shared. It was ironic, then, that he would say this is “not a great year to bring in carbon pricing.” In the five provinces and two territories it applies, the federal backstop will create additional income for all who fill in tax returns, which will be especially helpful to those on low incomes. For a family of four, it will range from $256 in New Brunswick to $609 in Saskatchewan, and will increase each year reaching respectively $607 to $1,459 by 2022.
