-- OTTAWA -- Trade expert Michael Hart of Carleton University's Centre for Trade Policy and Law dismissed Mr. Dion's carbon tariff comments as “bafflegab.”*
He predicted other nations would be furious with Canada.
“They'd quickly come to Ottawa and say ‘What the hell are you doing? Who came up with this crazy scheme?'” Prof. Hart said.
“The environmentalists would all scream 'the environment uber alles' but that's not enshrined in any trade agreement.”
