“And, Miller’s report adds it is time to discuss putting a price on carbon by undertaking a formal review to compare the merits of emissions trading and a carbon tax.”

“An early and clear price signal is needed to influence the investment decisions by industry in the technology and innovation required to achieve deep reductions.”….This is the time to move the discussion ahead. There is a huge sense of urgency,”

“It is time for all of us to start to get comfortable with two words: Carbon tax. Without it, all these dreams of a green tomorrow are hallucinations.” (Glen Murray, Toronto Star, May 27 2007).

“I have looked at increasing taxes in some areas. For example, I argued for moving toward more carbon taxation.” (Jack Mintz, The
Agenda With Steve Paikin, February 23, 2011).
