WINNIPEG – The provincial government is launching a survey to get your input on carbon tax.
Ottawa wants all provinces to have a plan in place by 2018.
So for the next two weeks, you can go to their website and offer your thoughts.
Sustainable development minister Cathy Cox says part of the process is sharing where you want to see revenue spent.
“We haven’t made any decisions yet with regard to how we plan to recycle the revenue. We want to be part of it, we want to work together with Manitobans, and not have the federal government direct us on what we have to do with the revenue.”
On Thursday, Finance Minister Cameron Friesen indicated that the province is committed to a ‘revenue neutral’ plan.
“We have to find ways in this to make sure we are not applying additional and undue pressure to our economy. We know, when you talk about agriculture or transportation, these are price-takers. A carbon tax could negatively affect these.”
The province is taking your input until March 19, but Cox was not confident the findings would be incorporated into the April 11 budget.
