  • Royal Canadian Military Institute 426 University Avenue Toronto, ON, M5G 1S9 Canada

The Canadian Taxpayers Federation & Blue Skies Ontario presents:

Cap & Giveaway: Carbon taxes, energy poverty, and the Australian experience

Keynote Presentation: Chris Berg, Senior Fellow, Institute of Public Affairs

The IPA led the successful campaign that ended Australia’s failed experiment with carbon taxes. As revenue hungry governments across Canada look to expand their coffers, this exclusive event will detail what these tax policies look like in practice, why Australia reversed course, and offers lessons for Ontario.

After he'll be joined on a panel by Ginny Movat & Tom Adams moderated by Postmedia's Anthony Furey to discuss:

  • What is the impact of cap and trade on Ontario’s energy systems?
  • Is Ontario’s cap and trade a carbon tax by another name?
  • What’s the answer to solving energy poverty in Ontario?
  • How does Ontario’s centre-right respond with good policy solutions and good politics?

When: December 7th, 5:30-7:30pm Where: Royal Canadian Military Institute, 426 University Ave., Toronto, Ontario

Tickets: $15 ticket in advance, $20 at the door.
