Summary:

  • Carbon pricing in BC may do more harm than good, hurting trade-dependent Canadian industries and increasing carbon leakage to other jurisdictions.
  • Increased production costs may drive resource industries (e.g. LNG, forestry, mining, and cement) out of BC and into the United States and other jurisdictions
  • This can have devastating impacts on Canadian workers
