If you are the owner or operator of a gas station in Ontario, you now have two stickers to choose from to display at the pumps. One will inform customers about the costs of taking action against climate; the other will show the costs of doing nothing.

The two stickers are virtually identical, with both showing the same graph with a steep red arrow of ominous growth. Both use the same font and colours. The only difference is the message.

"The federal carbon tax will cost you," reads the sticker that Premier Doug Ford is mandating gas stations post on their pumps, showing how the carbon tax will add 4.4 cents per litre to the price of gas now, rising to 11 cents per litre in 2022.
