We’ll give carbon tax revenue back to Nunavummiut, George Hickes says
Nunavut tax filers will get a rebate that will put federal carbon tax revenues back into their pockets, Finance Minister George Hickes said in the Nunavut legislature on May 28.
That makes Nunavut the last jurisdiction to announce how it will use revenues raised by the imposition of the federal government’s backstop carbon tax, which kicks in on July 1.
The federal government is imposing it because Nunavut has not developed its own system for pricing the greenhouse gas emissions that cause global warming.
But at the same time, Ottawa has promised to return all carbon tax revenues to Nunavut.
