To The Editor,

I have a news story to share with you.

Last spring, an environmental group for which I volunteer, Citizens’ Climate Lobby Canada, launched a Parliamentary e-petition to improve Canada’s carbon pricing policy. One shortcoming of Canada’s pollution pricing system is that people get their carbon pricing income or dividend as a tax credit rather than as a cheque or bank deposit. The result is that, while most people are aware that the government is collecting money from carbon taxes on fossil fuels, not so many are aware of how much of that money they are getting back.
The e-petition was sponsored by the Member of Parliament for Nickel Belt, Marc Serré.
Late last week we received a response to our petition from Canada’s Environment and Climate Change Minister, Jonathan Wilkinson.
