Wynne is lying when she mentioned in an interview with the media that her carbon tax starting January 2017 will
only add about $6 to the average household heating bill using nat gas.
I used the Union Gas website calculator and submitted my nat gas usage from the 4 coldest months last winter (2015)
on 428 cu meters (january) the cap n trade carbon tax is calculated at $14.12
on 378 cu meters (february) calculation is $12.47
on 310 cu meters (march ) calculation is $10.29
Ok this carbon tax is based on consumption and from May to October, the natural gas usage will not be as high as
in the winter months...lets say 100 cu meters for heating water and some home heat in the early spring and fall
for 2 months ..
on 100 cu meters (may) calculation is $3.30 ($6.60 for the two months of may and October)
for the other 6 months where a/C is used more (except for water heating) lets say it costs 40 cu metres to heat the water
40 x 3.3c = $1.32 (june, july, aug, sept) $1.32
So who is lying here?

the Liberal government's cap-and-trade plan.
