Purple farm fuels exempted from Manitoba carbon tax

Purple farm fuels exempted from Manitoba carbon tax: The Manitoba Climate and Green Plan points to grassland preservation and restoration to store and reduce carbon emissions – something the Manitoba Grassland and Forage Association (MGFA) supports. Quoted in this Manitoba Co-operator article: “We are enthused with the Manitoba Climate and Green Plan, especially with potential for forages and grasslands to be such proactive solutions within the plan going forward,” MGFA executive director Duncan Morrison. “We realize there’s work ahead and we’re ready to do what we can to help this Made-in-Manitoba plan take shape and activate for the betterment of our province.” Read the full Manitoba Cooperator article.
