I am firmly against a carbon tax. A carbon tax will have absolutely no impact on reducing emissions, works against our interests and has a harmful impact on jobs and economic growth. Instead, we must pursue alternatives that recognize Saskatchewan’s contribution to global food and energy security and carbon sequestration.
We have done a lot of good work in Saskatchewan in reducing carbon. Our soils, grasslands and forests are natural carbon sinks. Our investment in Carbon Capture Technology. We have pioneered technologies like zero-till and have invested to improve animal nutrition and feeding. We have solutions to offer the world. We have a good story to tell and we need to tell it.
