Provinces not on board with Liberals’ climate plan to lose funding: McKenna

OTTAWA — Environment Minister Catherine McKenna says the federal government will withhold money from a $2 billion fund for any province that doesn’t get on board with the Liberals’ climate plan.

Federal officials have been reviewing $420 million slated for Ontario from the low-carbon economy fund after that province’s newly elected Tory government scrapped a cap and trade system and rejected imposing a price on carbon.

McKenna said the federal government is committed to providing money from the fund to those provinces that show a commitment to seriously tackling climate change.

Provinces have until the weekend to submit their climate change plans for federal scrutiny.
