Reward fuel efficiency

Transportation is a necessary evil, and no tax will reduce or solve the carbon emissions of vehicles

We should all be concerned about pollution, but the approach this Liberal government is taking is downright fraudulent.

Transportation is a necessary evil, and no tax will reduce or solve the carbon emissions of vehicles. The incentive necessary is to promote the use of more fuel-efficient vehicles and levy those who are horsepower-crazy with a heavy tax, based on engine displacement over 2,000 ccm on a graduated scale upwards.

Car manufacturers must be given incentives to produce vehicles with lower fuel consumption than what are available on the North American market. Why are those efficient vehicles we see in Europe not allowed here? Higher NA standards are sheer silly nonsense and a lie.
