The oil and gas industry is already subject to the carbon dioxide pricing system.
Adding another tax is simply piling on, or harmfully duplicating, the regime
already in place. It is also blatantly discriminatory; no other industry sector,
including the emissions-intensive mining and metals industries, is being so
singularly targeted. It will add to the already long list of reasons why the
Canadian oil and gas industry stands at a competitive disadvantage compared
to the oil and gas industries in other countries.
