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.

A Canadian broadcaster and columnist, Andrew serves as a journalism fellow at True North and host of The Andrew Lawton Show.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
