Deep Dive – Carbon Tax Fight Continues

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled the federal government can impose a carbon tax across the country.

Waste Watch – Home Equity Tax?

In the summer, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said they were not funding a study of a home equity tax. We have exclusive documents that show they weren’t telling the whole story.
