No, Mr. Speaker, the government broke its promise to give a share of that gas tax to the municipalities. That is the promise it has broken.
Let me quote from a document that we received from Environment Canada under an access to information request. It states:
The tax increases required to achieve the Kyoto target would more than double gasoline prices--from about $0.54 per litre to about $1.40 per litre by the year 2010.
How is that going to go over in Victoria? Is it not true that the environment minister's only concern with $1 a litre gas is that it is too low?
