Manitoba Premier warns Ottawa to show some flexibility

BY , Jan 20, 2020 10:28 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is warning Ottawa it will have to show some flexibility if it wants him to continue helping build bridges to Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Pallister made the comment after a meeting in Winnipeg with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, where he said Manitoba will include a carbon price of some type in a new green plan aimed at exempting the province from the federal carbon tax.

His initial flat carbon tax was rejected by the federal government, which has called for escalating prices.

Pallister suggests he still wants a flat tax and repeated his demands that Ottawa must give Manitoba credit for steps it's already taken to reduce carbon emissions, such as investing in clean hydro electricity.
