For those who say that a carbon tax would/could not be revenue neutral:

$1:
That's right. The evidence now shows that because of B.C.'s carbon tax reform, at least three-quarters of us now pay less taxes to the B.C. government. But one never hears this. Instead, people still complain about Campbell's punitive carbon tax...

Thus, in its first two years, the revenue-neutral carbon tax was actually a $200-million tax cut. (And this is not even including the $100 cheques from general revenue the government sent everyone just as the tax kicked in.)
