Liberals never met a tax they didn't like.
Ill admit im leary of taxation and government control over natural gas but considering we arent really making anymore fossil fuels (i guess we kind of are, for millions of years down the road) it seems paramount to our countries survival to lessen our dependency on it. Beyond global warming (regardless of our stance on it), so much of our energy is derived from fossil fuels and we need to figure out new sources of renewable energy. It would be nice for us to take measures to prevent a full blow crisis in the future. Im just not sure how to effectively regulate it without allowing the coch-roaches to sneak in and screw up the system.
