Missing The Point

I don't know if this was public before, but the Liberal carbon tax exempts gasoline.
They say that we will tax at the pump – we will not,” Mr. Dion said.

The whole point of a carbon tax is to make gasoline more expensive, so we consume less.

Full disclosure: I don't have any faith in any political party that I know of. That being said, even exempting gasoline from the carbon tax, the Liberal plan is still better than the Conservative one, if they indeed have a plan. Further, the Conservative reaction to the carbon tax discussion is in general immature and ignorant. All taxes are not equal is a message that Harper could stand to learn.
