Business of Supply  . We are not hearing how they are going to deal with these issues and protect middle-class Canadians. Of course, this tax, and being tax-prudent, is protecting taxpayers, because they are the ones who are going to pick up the tab for these disasters. We have seen solutions. We have

Business of Supply  ? What effect would that have on curbing carbon use? What effect would it have on middle-class Canadians? What effect would it have on those who are the least fortunate in our society to be able to continue living their lives? It is also interesting that the Auditor General
