NDP "Axe the Tax" campaign has a problem

Remember all the alarmist rhetoric spewed from the likes of Carole James concerning the BC government's carbon tax?

Remember how low income British Columbians were going to be worse off?

Remember the accusations that the carbon tax, despite being legislated to do so, would NOT be revenue neutral?

Well, this pretty much nullifies that campaign.

If you don't believe the contents of the Times Colonist article, then go read the Budget 2009 document, p72. Included is the report on the neutrality of the carbon tax by deputy finance minister Chris Trumpy.
