It has been agreed that only flights that depart and arrive in Alberta (such as Calgary to Edmonton) will be included in the new carbon tax scheme. This means an airline flying from Calgary to Vancouver will be at a disadvantage from other airlines that are buying their fuel elsewhere. The cost will be passed on to passengers originating their trips in Alberta. The danger is that other Canadian states such Quebec or Ontario will be next to follow suit, which would damage Air Canada significantly.  Ontario has already increased provincial tax on jet fuel by 100% in five years.
