Harper Attacks Dion's Carbon Tax. By Campbell Clark, Toronto Globe and Mail, June 22, 2008. "Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Friday the Liberals' so-called green shift would ,screw everybody across the country,, comparing leader St├ęphane Dion's carbon tax to the national energy program of the 1980s. After previously labelling Mr. Dion's plan 'insane' and 'crazy,' Mr. Harper continued to firebomb the Liberal proposal with indelicate language... In raising the national energy program, decried in the West as an eastern-skewed cabal to transfer oil wealth, Mr. Harper enlisted a touchstone issue of Western alienation."
