In this episode, we’re talking about talking about carbon taxes. What do people know about carbon taxes? What do they think about them? What is it like talking about them across the political divide?

Host Nick Martin talks with Mark Cameron from Canadians for Clean Prosperity, former policy director for Prime Minister Harper and a conservative who supports putting a price on carbon.

Meanwhile, What the West hits downtown Calgary with office pup Churchill to talk to everyday Calgarians about what they think about carbon taxes.
