Letter to the Editor: Conservatism doesn't not entail a pro-fossil fuel stance

Oil drill

LETTER TO THE EDITOR — Regarding your item reporting on our MP, Alex Ruff's bill to "remove the tax from the tax," his comments on the carbon tax need to be challenged.

All evidence points to the fact that burning fossil fuels is the major cause of climate change. A price on carbon encourages investment in cleaner energy sources such as solar and wind power. Laws that make polluting activities more expensive make green technologies more affordable over time. If Mr. Ruff and his party look at the history of carbon pricing in other countries such as the UK they will see that Conservatism does not entail a pro-fossil fuel stance.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort.
