Nova Scotia holds off on a Carbon Tax

In advance of the Nova Scotia Budget  on April 19, the  Nova Scotia Federation of Labour, CCPA-Nova Scotia, and clean energy groups issued an  Open Letter    calling for made-in-Nova Scotia carbon pricing, stating “The Nova Scotia government should immediately create a multi-sectoral working group on this issue, including environmental, anti-poverty and fair economy groups.”  Their concerns were not addressed in the Budget, as government policy focused mainly on  protecting the small budget surplus reported.  For a summary, see the CBC report here   .
