Green Taxes

RNAO Recommendations

Ensure Fiscal Capacity through Progressive and Green Taxes to Invest in Public Services

  1. Ensure the fiscal capacity to deliver all essential health, social, and environmental services by building a more progressive tax system and revenue sources that encourage environmental and societal responsibility.
  2. Reject a fire sale of publicly owned Crown Corporations such as Hydro One, Ontario Power Generation, Ontario Lottery and Gaming and the LCBO that would cut valuable sources of public revenue, severely restrict the government’s fiscal capacity and be contrary to the public interest.
  3. Phase in environmental levies, such as a carbon tax, to achieve environmental objectives and support the social programs and services most needed by at-risk populations.
