Federal carbon tax to be imposed in Alberta Jan. 1

The federal carbon tax will be imposed in Alberta on January 1, 2020.

“I sent a letter to minister Nixon, he’s the minister of environment in Alberta, letting him know that as a result of Alberta’s decision to make it free to pollute in Alberta, that we will have the federal price on pollution,” federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said Thursday.

The new Alberta government officially repealed the former NDP government’s carbon tax on May 30 as part of Bill 1.
