The federal government will unveil a carbon-tax plan this week that would provide breaks for major industrial emitters, while ensuring most Canadians families get rebates to offset higher energy bills.

Environment Minister Catherine McKenna will release a “technical paper” outlining the federal proposal for a levy that would only apply in provinces that refuse to implement their own tax or cap-and-trade system. The Minister will invite feedback on the plan before introducing legislation later this year.
