Under Green Party plan, gas prices, home heating, groceries all to go up with doubling of carbon tax – plus three years of deficits

From The Province:

The platform says the Green party would run a $146-million deficit during its first full year in office, but that it would balance the budget over the four-year mandate. 

Revenues from an increased carbon tax would rise from $50 million in 2017-18 to $865 million in 2020-21.

The Greens would steadily hike the carbon tax to $70 a tonne by 2021 from the current $30. The federal government already plans to increase the tax to $50 a tonne by 2022.
