Mr. Campbell's Canada Day salutations

For those who took part in Canada Day celebrations, driving to and from the festivities may have been a bit more expensive than it was on June 30th.

British Columbia's Carbon tax increased once again on Canada Day, adding close to another 2 cents to a litre of gas. It was last July 1st that the Campbell Liberals introduced the tax, part of their commitment to reduce our carbon footprint and cut our greenhouse gas emissions by one third by 2020.

In what is now apparently a Liberal tradition, the gas tax will again rise next year just in time for the nation's 143rd birthday.
