The results describe the political dilemma for the Liberals. Voters are tempted by the promise of saving money, (many don’t know the exact impact of the price and rebate scheme), because the cost of living is painful. The Conservatives may not be winning many votes on the climate change issue, but they probably aren’t losing many by promising to abolish the tax. Liberals are expected to show leadership on climate, but avoid being seen as indifferent to the higher interest rates and rising food prices that are causing pain.
