The potentially fatal flaw in Dion’s Carbon Tax

If Dion’s Carbon tax pulls in 15 billion dollars then 6 billion of that would come from Saskatchewan and Alberta.  If the tax cuts are distributed evenly then only 2 billion would come back to Saskatchewan and Alberta.  Saskatchewan and Alberta have 13% of Canada’s population but produce 40% of the carbon. 

The logical solution to this problem would be to transfer the carbon tax revenue to the province it is collected in.  But that would be a very different plan from the one Dion is proposing.
