All taxpayers in BC got a government dividend in the mail for $100.00. It is supposed to appease us for the upcoming carbon tax our Provincial Government is imposing on us come July 1st. BC is the only Province in Canada to implement the carbon tax. Our gas is already $1.48.00 a litre and is likely to hit $2.00 per litre soon. They are trying to force us out of our cars. It's ridiculous!!! People in the lower mainland are not going to take public transit no matter what the cost of gas is. It's just another tax grab by our government.
Oh yea, by 2012 the tax price of 7.24 will be added to our already outrageous gas prices.
I am going to use my $100.00 to put towards my car insurance savings for next year. So much for "going green."
