Update on BC's Effective and Popular Carbon Tax

Source:  Statistics Canada, author calculations
Fuel consumption per capita has fallen in British Columbia by nearly 19% relative to the rest of Canada; these are just the fuels that are subject to the carbon tax.

Greenhouse gas emissions data show a decrease of 10% over the period of the carbon tax, much better than the -1.1% reduction for the rest of the country.

The economic data show no big differences in performance between BC and the rest of Canada.
