Canada’s Eco-Fiscal Commission, an environmental lobby group run by mostly former Liberal politicians, is calling on the federal government to increase the carbon tax to $210/tonne by 2030, which is over four times the current target of $50/tonne by 2022. This comes after other organizations, including the International Monetary Fund, have said Canada’s present plan won’t be enough to meet its greenhouse gas emission targets.
