Carbon Tax Killed Greyhound Business, Notley Calls It Disturbing News

in Canada by

The Carbon Tax put in place by Alberta Premier Rachel Notley was part of the reason business was declining for Greyhound in Western Canada.

Sales are down so the company must shut down before they go bankrupt.

Notley said the decision is “disturbing and upsetting news for Albertans and people living in rural communities.”

“We know how much that service helped people, lower- and middle-income folks in those communities, get out to larger centres to reach medical services, shopping services, a whole bunch of other services in those larger centres,” she said.

Notley also said in 2016 people should take the bus if they don’t like paying for gas or carbon tax.
