The day after federal NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair announced his plan to introduce a second National Energy Program (NEP) if he is elected on Oct. 19, Alberta NDP Premier Rachel Notley was in Montreal Monday announcing our province’s surrender to Mulcair-like thinking.

No doubt the NDP will object to my characterization of their platform as NEP II. Too bad.

Mulcair proposes a national cap-and-trade scheme. Companies that are large-scale emitters of carbon dioxide would have to buy carbon “credits” – a form of carbon tax – that Mulcair would then “redistribute” to other provinces.

That is exactly what the NEP did back in the 1980s. It imposed an excise tax on oil (i.e. on Alberta), in order to raise funds that Ottawa could redistribute to other provinces.

You know that Alberta already has a carbon tax, right?

Ok, just checking. The statement "plan to introduce" made me think that you might not be aware it already existed.
