NP:  Would Trudeau really risk his government on pounding home his carbon tax — in Ontario, especially? On insisting that provincial prices rise and rise and rise to $50 per tonne in 2022?
   I offer no prediction. But if the Liberal Party of Canada has a soul, surely some significant chunk of it is on the line here. Trudeau and his impossibly earnest ministers have let down a lot of people since 2015. On myriad issues from reconciliation and democratic reform to Central American refugees, they are already alarmingly reliant on a core partisan belief: “When we fail, unlike the Conservatives, we at least mean well.”
   Meaning well is worth exactly squat on any of those files. But only one of them involves what the Liberals have insisted is the very future of humankind.
