seems to go against the alarmist mantra of 'discouraging' usage...and someone tell me how this isn't really just a form of wealth redistribution?

In this case, the fools and useful idiots think they are buying their way to salvation.

People who choose to use more fossil fuels are choosing to redistribute a small portion of their wealth to those that choose to use less. The choice is up to the individual.

Typical Canadian government dishonesty and hypocrisy in action. Identical to what they did with tobacco. Hate the product, try to cripple the producers, get on their virtue-signalling podium to demonize the users, and at the same time collect massive amounts of taxation off of something that provides them with a critical amount of revenue for all their other little precious schemes and pay-offs. And never ban it either, not just because of the taxes it provides, but because they simply can't live without a convenient target to incessantly white-knight crusade against.

Too bad hypocrisy isn't a length of wire because Canada deserves to have it wrapped around it's throat and tightened until it chokes to death.

Since almost all citizens will collect more than they pay, its not possible that the government is collecting “ massive amounts of taxation off of something that provides them with a critical amount of revenue for all their other little precious schemes“ , is it?

How about not collecting taxes at all if they just have to send most of it back to the individual or business anyway? :?

Never seen a leftist with a tax he didn't like.

Because most people will choose to maximize profit by reducing consumption of fossil fuels while pocketing the tax credit.

I've been waiting for it to occur to people that "Households" aren't the only ones paying this carbon levy. Business and Industry will also pay it, and they have the advantage of not being voters and also much larger polluters than Households.

And it is a levy, because Taxes don't get refunded.
