Environment Minister Jonathan Wilkinson admitted Canadians will be paying more at the pumps due to his government’s carbon tax. Wilkinson made the comments during an interview on TVO’s The Agenda With Steve Paikin. “At the end of the day, politicians have an obligation to the public to tell them the straight goods. And if they have a disagreement, that’s fine. But let’s be serious and let’s be real about the facts,” said Wilkinson. “Certainly as we move forward with that, it is going to have a number of different impacts. Certainly there are additional costs associated with moving to reduce the amount of carbon in those fuels.”
