Completely agree and that is usually my response back to them.

Albertans just don't want a carbon tax of any form. Whether it is rev neutral or not, they just don't want it.

As I said before, I just want my income tax to drop. Stop overtaxing my time that I invest into society/the economy and start coming down hard on social parasites that don't contribute but could.

I just want proper fiscal policy. Fiscal responsibility is very important to me. When I live under a government that is going to have a legacy of debt, it bothers me greatly.
