Carbon Tax Protest Grows

The provincial Liberals now infamous carbon tax has two more municipaal critics and, they are in the lower mainland heart of the province.
Delta and Maple Ridge have formally registered their opposition to certain aspects of the tax plan, which Premier Campbell has stated will not be subject to any adjustments.
Look for the plan to be a key subject of debate later this month at the annual meeting of the Union of BC Municipalities, where a total of twelve tax resolutions will reportedly be on the agenda.
With local politicians gearing up for fall civic elections, the four day Penticton meeting, starting on the 22nd, could be the stage of a major political collision with the Liberal government.
Communities from Fort St. John to Williams Lake have strongly endorsed a series of resolutions opposing the tax.
They have unsuccssfully sought to have the grits defer it, eliminate it for northern jurdisdictions, or at very least organize northern exemptions.
