The Northwest Territories' government has conceded to Justin Trudeau and announced plans to introduce a carbon tax that meets the federal Liberal government's demands.
Starting July 1, 2019, the N.W.T. will impose a carbon tax of $20 per tonne, rising to $50 a tonne by 2022.
Aviation fuel will be exempt from the tax, but not fuel needed by residents of the territory who need fuel to drive their cars.
It is expected that the average family living in the territory will pay an additional $950 a year as a result of the Trudeau carbon tax while rebates will be provided to corporations to offset the burden. Click here to read more.
