The carbon tax or “price on pollution” has been a flagship policy of the Trudeau government. The government has constantly lectured Canadians about the need to have a carbon tax in place.

But what exactly is a carbon tax? How does it work?

The tax has been hotly debated, with many economists and Conservative politicians raising concerns that it is nothing more than a tax cash-grab that will hurt the Canadian economy while doing nothing for the environment.

In our first episode of Green Hypocrisy, True North’s Candice Malcolm takes an extensive look into the carbon tax.

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.
