With the countdown to the July 1 long weekend well underway in the capital, Environment Minister Catherine McKenna drops by an urban micropark in the heart of her downtown Ottawa riding to reveal how her government intends to, as the advisory puts it, “allocate a portion of the proceeds collected as a result of carbon pollution pricing.”
Given the looming election, however, expect her to devote just as much time and energy during the ensuing media availability to emphasizing one of the key messages in her government’s ongoing campaign to promote that same pricing system, which is now in place across Ontario and much of Canada: namely, that a sizeable chunk of the cash will be refunded to Canadians via newly implemented tax refunds, with most families projected to get back as much, if not more, than they’re now expected to pay at the pumps.
