GNWT seeking public feedback on carbon pricing

The GNWT is asking residents for feedback on the future of carbon pricing in the north.

The online survey seeks feedback on how to charge residents and companies for carbon pollution (the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas).

This comes in light of the Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change that agrees to participate in carbon pricing Canada wide.

Premier Bob McLeod signed the framework in December 2016.

The Northwest Territories produces about 1,440 kilotonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year. Most of these emissions are from transportation (59 per cent) and industry (19 per cent) and heating buildings (13 per cent).
