I don't know much about this Scheer guy, but a quick google suggests that he isn't a Canadian Trump.  I am relieved  :sleep:

It is not much comfort if someone passes that low bar.  For sure Scheer is no Trump.  But he was backed by social conservatives and so it will be interesting to see what his platform of "freedom of expression" means.
Probably just means unpopular opinions that he personally agrees with.

Scheer's a social conservative. There's a constituency for that, but not enough to get him elected. Trudeau is probably feeling pretty smug at the moment.

The other troubling thing is he is against carbon taxes.  He says the Conservatives need to develop a climate policy so I will hold judgment to see what that is.
At this point, the damage is done.  Going the other way would not have positive effects compensating the negatives of the tax.

I would offer all the provinces an opt-out if they develop their own system though.  Quebec, Ontario and Alberta aren't affected by the tax, so in the future, if another province wants its own system, let them out.

If the government truly invests the revenues from this tax into R&D for a green economy (I highly doubt it, it's not what Quebec has done, and it does not look it's what your party aims to do either, prefering expensive trips over the global economy), it would be positive though.

Not sure what you are referring to.  The BC carbon tax works as designed.  It is tax neutral while putting a higher cost on carbon.
