Because a couple of more Liberals are asking him to do just that.
David Orchard: “I've spoken out inside the party and I've made my views known that I'd like to see some changes in the proposal,” said Orchard “I don't want to see farmers or fisherman or northerners penalized for using fuels for which there is no option, they have no alternative.”
Paul Zed: "There is no tax on emissions. The Green Shift plan is not a detriment to the refinery "¦ I wouldn't be supporting this if, for a moment, I thought the refinery was in jeopardy."
Ok, Zed is not asking directly for a change but once he realizes that he is grossly mistaken in his belief that refineries are not going to be taxed he has 2 choices; not support the carbon tax, as his words above so clearly state, or ask Dion to change the plan. Which one will it be?
Will Stephane Dion make more changes to the Green Shift before the election date?
Only time will tell.
