Average Ont. family of 4 to receive $307 in carbon tax rebates

Average Ont. family of 4 to receive $307 in carbon tax rebates

"While conservative governments are wasting time in court, we will be reducing pollution across the country now", Carr said.

Tuesday's announcement set the stage for what will be a key issue in next year's federal election. And with Trudeau's plans finally unveiled, the undeclared campaign is finally on.

Four provinces won't have their own carbon tax.

Green Party Leader Elizabeth May also praised the federal plan but warned it won't be enough.

If you live in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan or New Brunswick then Justin Trudeau wants you to know that despite the cost of everything going up, you will get more money back than you will pay. A cubic metre of natural gas will cost 3.91 cents more, or about $8 more per month for the average household.

But for many of us who have been steeped in resource economics for decades, in pollution pricing, "tax" is not a bad word.

Average household payments will be $300 in Ontario, $256 in New Brunswick, $336 in Manitoba and $598 in Saskatchewan.

The amount you pay depends on how much energy you use. Payments will be determined based on family size.

"Eight in 10 Ontario families will get back more than they pay, directly", Trudeau said.

But he added there are still parts of the country,"where people refuse to get it". Welcome aboard the all-new Canadian Cynical Circular Carbon Circus, the fantastic Liberal climate control spectacle that will send you on a great environmental ride into the future.

During the 2015 election, Trudeau predicted Canada would have three years of "modest" deficits under his leadership followed by a $1 billion surplus in 2019-20.

Saudi minister says Khashoggi killing a 'grave mistake'
What happened to Khashoggi on Oct 2 remains open for debate in part because of how details have become public. Ankara has vowed to reveal all the details of a two-week inquiry. "He was killed in the consulate".

"What we heard today is that this is not about the environment".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau didn't just announce a carbon-tax rebate plan on Tuesday; he also launched a political messaging war that will see Conservative and Liberal politicians battling over the money that will soon start flowing on tax returns. The rest will be parceled out to small businesses, colleges, schools and hospitals in a special fund that has yet to be worked out. While nearly everyone would certainly escape from the path of a flooding river, people commonly build in low areas known to flood every few decades despite the inevitable future cost. "There is an argument to be made for putting a price on carbon".

However, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has said that province's carbon levy will not increase as planned until the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is built, and opposition leader Jason Kenney has vowed to scrap the carbon tax if he is elected next year.

Five things you need to know about how the national price on carbon affects you.

Premier Scott Moe railed against the plan, saying it is "most certainly not an environmental policy at this point in time".

Scheer has said repeatedly that carbon prices do nothing for the environment. The rebates will ensure families don't suffer and can further increase their savings if they do find ways to reduce their emissions.

The payoffs of a carbon tax, meanwhile, are remote and speculative. The government doesn't say who that will be.

Starting in April 2019 carbon pollution will initially cost $20 a tonne, rising by $10 a year until it reaches $50 in 2022.

Trudeau believes Canadians will be on the side of pricing pollution in order to ensure emissions are cut and climate change is kept in check because they have seen the impacts from forest fires and floods to droughts and heat waves.

In Saskatchewan the carbon tax rebate for a family of four will be $609 in 2019, increasing to $1,495 in 2022.

"The carbon tax imposed on SaskPower will not change one iota of the way that SaskPower is going to reduce emissions", Duncan said. It said it would provide reimbursements for small -and medium-sized companies, but did not specify what mechanism would be used, promising instead to release details in early 2019.
