Re: “Kenney, Ford to spend $60-million on PR war against Trudeau’s carbon tax, and that ain’t right,” (The Hill Times, May 27, by Michael Harris, p. 4). Michael Harris is so right. A recent poll pointed out that most Canadians don’t want provinces to spend our money fighting federal carbon pricing—the so-called backstop, also known as the price on pollution. Most are, rightfully, scared about the climate crisis and want effective action. Most want action to stop burning fossil fuel. And most know from basic common sense that less will be used when the price is increased.
