The hyper-politicization of carbon pricing has led to a fact free-for-all. A church here and a long commute there are both facing economic ruin with that carbon tax on everything. Alternatively, it is all sunshine and rebates with families magically better off with the carbon action incentive. While this crescendo of polarization will only increase as the federal election nears, we no longer need to just speculate about carbon policy impacts. With well over a decade of provincial and federal policy implementation, we are rapidly accumulating a historical record helpful for assessing the real-world impacts of Canadian carbon policy.
