The early morning bus had 20 people on it, with room for many more, as vehicles with solo drivers whizzed past in herds. I walked from my stop a few blocks to the Legislature, dodging lines of heavy morning traffic.
It set the stage for the workshop last week on a carbon tax for Manitoba, demonstrating both the problem and what to do about it.
Of course, my taking the bus and walking is not the answer to global warming. Neither is a carbon tax.
But both are places to start, which is how I approached the government’s offer to sit down with an eclectic group of stakeholders and discuss our options for a Made-in-Manitoba solution.carbon
