Our PC government will move forward with its Made-in-Manitoba Climate and Green Plan, without a carbon tax.
Our PC government sought the federal government's assurance that it would not impose its escalating carbon tax plan over and above the Manitoba tax.
That assurance has not been given.
Ottawa plans to impose a high – and rising – carbon tax on Manitobans.
This would mean twice the tax, for poorer results. That would threaten jobs and economic growth throughout our province and take money off the kitchen tables of Manitoba families.
Our PC government believes that Manitoba deserves credit for the massive investments we have made in clean energy over the years.
Our Manitoba plan focuses on four pillars of cleaner water, conservation of natural areas, effective steps to address climate change, and strengthening the economy and will make a significant and lasting positive impact on the environment.
We will continue standing up for Manitobans, by implementing our own green plan - without a carbon tax.
