Wiill increase the cost of everything. We have very little polution compared to many other countries. If you want to see polution travel to India or China.

Won't affect the climate, but will enhance the Wynne Liberals pocketbook.
_______________________________
Just another tax grab by the bankrupt Ontario Liberal Party.
_______________________________
Its a Tax on a Tax
_______________________________
Its time for a taxpayer revolt in Ontario and Canada against the inept, irresponsible governments who both think there is a money tree. There is no end to the deceipt and waste. Corruption runs rampant!!!!!!!!!!!!
_______________________________
Tax is tax no matter what you call it. Government Policy and laws are the strength of good environmental planning.
_______________________________
Tax grab for Liberal general revenue. It will have zero impact on the environment. Enjoy paying more while you breath unfettered Ohio valley pollution.
_______________________________
Absolutely not. Cap and trade is just another cash cow for the Wynne government. They said it is to "fight" climate change. Climate change is a farce. She can't manage the money she has now, so she just taxes and taxes people dry. She is the worst premier in Ontario's history.
_______________________________
Compared to countries such as India, China and the U.S., our carbon footprint is almost zero. Until countries such as those mentioned, we have a miniscule effect on the warming of the earth.
_______________________________
It's just another Wynne tax grab.
_______________________________
I would far prefer a carbon tax. At least the taxpayer would benefit. With the cap and trade the prov. gov't can go recklessly spending the profits.
_______________________________
It's just another way to increase the gov't coffers .. It won't have anything to do with global warming
_______________________________
The liberal governments are out of control with spending.

It's just another tax grab by a spend thirsty Liberal government.

the money goes to general revenues
_______________________________
First of all, Canada has a very low carbon footprint. Secondly, Cap and Trade means that companies exceeding the cap can buy credits from companies that don't reach the Cap. In other words there is little incentive to conform. It is simply a Liberal scam to collect and waste more of our tax money.
_______________________________
It''s a cash grab by the liberals to reward their pals in the solar and wind industries. Ontario already has the highest energy costs in North America and this will just more business to cheaper jurisdictions. The unions won and we are going broke. Sad
_______________________________
Let the countries that pollute the most start and when it gets to our level (-1%) we will join in.

Back door tax grab by the NOTORIUS Liberals
_______________________________

Yes. We pretend we are concerned but have not been doing enough.
_______________________________

it is another cash grab.....the more we drive the more it costs. At 73 years of age I will not be riding a bike!
_______________________________
It'll end up with us sending money to California and Quebec
______________________________
We cannot afford to do this at this time and with our forested area from what I have read we should be in a neutral position now. So to me it is just another tax grab.
_______________________________
Another taX, breaking the backs of Ontario residents
_______________________________
Just another tax grab from win a dinner.
_______________________________
Just another tax grab by the Liberals. There is no way that Cap and Trade in Ontario and Canada will do anything to change the climate. The Liberals have succeeded in taxing the air and chasing away business!!
_______________________________
Leading by example when your total national carbon footprint accounts for less than 2% of global output is pointless as it will not impact climate change 1 iota. An unafordable luxury which makes the green evangelists smug while jetting off to southern vacations.
_______________________________
Just a new market for the rich political class to get richer and poop all over the poor..

_______________________________
Just another tax grab by the liberals who have made a mess of Ontario.
_______________________________
Poorly thought out
_______________________________
My wife asks, what is cap and trade? I simply reply "smoke and mirrors". No mathematics/science can logically define it, except to say it's a government tax grab. Glenn

My wife asks, what is cap-and-trade? I simply reply, "smoke and mirrors". The average person on the street can't give you a better answer than that. It's a tax grab to apply to increasing government debt.
_______________________________
Pay enough for heat and hydro.
_______________
Just another unique Alternative Tax Fact for the government to waste.
_______________________________
Change is messy, but that's no reason to delay dealing with carbon. Too bad we don't go all the way to a carbon tax, but then, the word "tax" would whip everyone up even more. The world needs to get smart and kick the carbon crack addiction, and that starts in our own backyards.
_______________________________
We already pay enough for all of the services & utilities we use. Taxpayers are not an unlimited source of revenue for any level of government.
_______________________________
It is another tax grab by the Liberal Government.
_______________________________
Perhaps the government should focus more on getting their spending under control. Cap and trade will do very little to nothing to halt global warming. It will put Ontario at a competitive disadvantage. Energy is a huge cost for business. We're pricing ourselves out of competition. Queens Park is hurting the citizens they say they're trying to protect from global warming.
