Budget watchdog troubled by spin around latest report on carbon pricing | CTV News

Published: 11 April 2023

April 8, 2023 | Yves Giroux opened a political firestorm last week with a new report that concluded carbon price rebates are worth more than the direct cost of the carbon price for 80 per cent of families. The Conservatives, who have campaigned heavily on removing carbon pricing, claimed that the Liberals lied about the "sneaky carbon tax" when they said the rebate were more than the cost. 

Professor Chris Ragan, said the Conservatives talk about carbon pricing without offering any glimpse of what they'll do instead. Any alternative, including doing nothing, isn't free, he said. He also added that the government isn't making it easy to understand what carbon pricing really does. 

The interview was also featured in an CBC news article on Canada' latest carbon pricing report.
