3 months in and I haven't changed my ways i just have less money. I was conserving before now it just costs me more to go to work and support my family. Only person this helps is the govt by boosting the bottom line.

Exactly....As I said the rates are much too low and needs to be increased to change behavior like yours

People won't change their irresponsible ways until you make it hurt...Much like how people drink and drive ..They won't stop until you make it hurt...Samething with traffic tickets...One won't hurt..Even two may not...But eventually when they get kicked into facility they will smarten up

Rates are too low now to make people like yourself change your ways yet

Same with how the gas spike few years ago was needed to get people to stop driving around in Lincoln navigators and Hummers when they had no need for them. A few pennies nowadays won't change a thing especially with the irresponsible decrease in hydro rates

You guys are here complaining about not being able to afford carbon taxes and doing mental gymantics how its "wrong" while china is already dominating one part of the green market. :facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:

Let me guess what youre next post will be. China is lying? they are a joke?. They are the problem?. Face With Tears Of Joy
China has a pollution problem, so they are doing what needs to be done to fix it. Canada has a greedy politician problem, someday it will be fixed. Maybe with a famine.

The only reason China is not building coal plants is because they have too many already and they don't need more right now. Ppl seem to forget China is not a free country and controls what the media knows.
