But wait, where did Van Loan get the $21.5 billion figure? How does he know that number? He probably made it up, right? Nope, the NDP acknowledge their carbon tax will cost Canadians $21.5 Billion between 2011 and 2015 in their own costing document!
Or perhaps this is another Mulcair flip-flop, attempting to reverse an NDP policy from when Jack Layton was still the leader, as with the legalization of marijuana and countless other policies?
