The Carbon Tax on My Natural Gas Bill is More Than My Gas

Here’s my latest natural gas bill. Note the cost for the gas we used in our house fora month is a paltry $11.77. The carbon tax on that is $15.10.

Not done though. Add the “Clean Energy Levy” of $0.26, and federal sales tax (GST) on all of that (meaning a tax on the other taxes) of $4.05. Cost of gas: $11.77. Taxes: $19.41. Vote liberal.
