The provincial government released their climate change strategy on Monday, and as expected it didn't include a carbon tax.

In the 13-page document that was released, called 'Prairie Resilience: A Made-in-Saskatchewan Climate Change Strategy', chose not to follow the federal governments guidelines of applying a taxation on emissions starting in the New Year.

The motion was brought to a vote on Wednesday, where it passed with only the NDP voting against it.

MLA Warren Michelson explained what the new climate change strategy means for residents of Saskatchewan;

"There wont be a tax on your power bill, there wont be a tax on your energy bill. What we are doing is protecting the consumer from this tax situation and working with industry and business to creative a plan to reduce emissions without imposing a tax on the people".

Michelson went on to tell us what the next step of the process will be;

"We will continue working with industry and making sure that they are reviewing their plans and making their plans to make emmisions less. This just formalizes it a little bit more. We want to be a little more agressive and make sure that we are achieving less emmisions".

According to the province's environment minister, Saskatchewan produces about 10 per cent of the nation's emissions, and Canada produces 1.6 per cent of the global emissions.
