Paying carbon tax on natural gas

Most of the discussion about the carbon tax has been about gasoline, and automobiles.

Most of the discussion about the carbon tax has been about gasoline, and automobiles. What is being ignored is the natural gas used in our homes.

My hydro and gas bills have been on a budget, so I didn’t really pay much attention to the breakdown until this discussion.

My last bill, January 2012, the breakdown was – actual cost, delivery, commodity charges – $ 93.53

I used the gas, it’s only fair that I pay for what I used.

But I can’t see that I got any use out of the carbon tax of $10.68  or the HST  of $11.71.

I wonder how complacent the taxpayers of B.C. would be if they checked the breakdown on their invoices.
