Carbon tax revenue from our area

So at a BBQ last night our local Coop manager gets asked some questions and reveals that the govt has received $43,000 in carbon tax for one month from both cardlocks and both retail with full service in our hometown and Hudson Bay. Keep in mind that farm fuels are exempt from this so it is local private and commercial vehicles. population 950 here and maybe 2000 in Hudson Bay. Just guessing but can't be to far off. We are just a speck on the map. Now take into account the rest of the amount of taxation fuel has and add it up you must ask yourself WTF are they doing with all that cash? It sure isn't road maintenance.

Isn't that where the 12 million Climate Barbie gave the Weston family for new fridges come from? Ya the same fine folks who price fixed bread for twenty years....

The govt is making more off fuel taxes than the coop. Coop made over a billion profit last last year.

What climate Barbie et al don't tell us, when they claim to be refunding most of the carbon tax back to consumers, is that most of the carbon tax is payed by businesses, not consumers, and they don't get any of it back. Which is convenient because businesses also don't vote( except when they eventually vote with their feet by vacating the country which doesn't appreciate them).

Channeling it to the conservative election fund??

From a net vote point of view we’re ******. The city dwellers are net ahead with this wealth distribution.

It’s just another form of wealth distribution, nothing more. As far as where the other tax dollars dissapear to, If you are looking for them in Canada you are looking in the wrong place. I’ve always maintained that the govt should need to have a surplus before being allowed to send any tax dollars out of the country, and then only a small percentage should be allowed out.

Not quite. Business pay no taxes realistically, their consumers do through increased priced goods or services.

You're right, so technically the consumer pays for it twice.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Unless, of course, it's a farm business and you can't pass on the extra cost. Farmers are price takers and this type of cost eventually finds it's way into lowering our asset values, which is the only expenditure that we can set the price on. Even then it takes a long time to manifest itself, hence why AG is very cyclical.

Or as is the case with most businesses, they compete directly or indirectly with businesses from other countries or jurisdictions who don't have the added tax burdens, so are unable to pass the costs on and still remain competitive. All of the twits who support such taxes and regulations are blissfully unaware that it is a global economy.
