The Manitoba government has set up an online survey, for Manitoban’s feedback on where the province’s carbon pricing should be set.
The website, manitoba.ca/climateandgreenplan, also allows residents to express their opinion on what should be done with the revenue, strategies cutting greenhouse gas emissions, etc.
The Liberal government informed all provinces to start a carbon tax by 2018, at 10 dollars per tonne, or about 2 cents a litre of regular gasoline.
Manitoba and Saskatchewan were the only provinces to holdout on a national climate change strategy late last year.
Premier Brian Pallister promised the province will develop its own climate change program and deliver it by the end of the first quarter this year.
While the PC government acknowledges climate change as a legitimate concern, they haven’t said what the promised provincial climate plan would look like.
