BC NDP float plan for Environment Savings Bonds

... but there are less expensive ways for the provincial government to raise the funds for environmental refits.

The NDP's campaign to "axe the tax" flew in the face of BC and other environmentalists' recommendations. Placing a price on carbon is one key method of reducing carbon emissions. There are others but for any environmental plan to have credibility, a carbon tax must be included.

Since the NDP disagrees, then voters are unlikely to find such an important ingredient in the party's yet-to-be-disclosed full environmental plan.
