    Punish the offenders? Why that's the sort of radical right wing thought that will have all the snowflakes' skirts up

    The conservatives and liberals define offenders differently.
    The liberals define it as anyone who burns a fossil fuel, benefits from the burning of a fossil fuel, or pays someone else to burn a fossil fuel, or produces a fossil fuel -- which is everyone & everycorp including homeless and dogs & cats.

    I tried the Liberal's Carbon Tax for {Transportation Sector, Energy Sector, Residential Sector, Commercial Sector} and it didn't move the line much either.
    Then I tried the Conservatives Carbon Tax (pollution tax) {Industry Sector} to 165 per tonne, and the line just fell and suddenly I met the Paris Climate accord target.

    Maybe there's something to the Conservative's plan after all.

    Ontario announced their environment plan in April, but I didn't notice it until today's commercial.
    Seems similar to the Conservative plan, in that it's against carbon tax and in favour or pricing pollution by largest polluters.
    Some alarming estimates of what the prices will be.

    Conservative plan?

    No, Conservative Party’s decidedly socialist plan!
