This doesn't surprise me. While considered the most efficient means of tackling the AGW by economists, the last election proved it (at least in the flawed version offered by Dion) too damn easy to demagogue. And after that miserable experience, the idea is going to be dead in the Canadian federal context for awhile now.
Expect a version of a C&T system to appear in Iggy's policy manual sometime soon. Iggy:
'We want to do the right thing environmentally but this isn't working for us, think again'," he said.
"And I'm saying to you, we need to think again. You can't lead this country unless you listen, and we're listening."
You know he's been humping this line for several months now. Can we move past the thinking and listening stage to floating an idea or two?
