B.C. Business Leaders Support Carbon Tax

An open letter to the citizens of British Columbia was released on December 19, 2011 and signed by 85 British Columbia business leaders. Citing the urgency highlighted in the recent report by the National Round Table on Energy and the Environment, as well as the example of California and Australia, the letter endorses the current B.C. carbon tax and calls on the government “to commit to a schedule of continuing increases after July 2012” …to “help us secure a better future, while creating new, high-paying jobs today, in non-polluting industries”. The open letter was coordinated by Tides Canada, The Pembina Institute, and the David Suzuki Foundation, where the full text of the letter is posted at: http://www.davidsuzuki.org/media/news/downloads/2011/Carbon_Tax_Open_Letter.pdf
