PR02 - (Pallister-Carbon-Tax)

WINNIPEG. x-05s. Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister says he's prepared to take the federal government to court if it imposes a higher carbon tax than the one he's planning. Ottawa has demanded the provinces adopt a tax this year of 10 dollars per tonne, which would rise by each year until it hits 50 dollars in 2022. Pallister is planning to impose a 25-dollar per tonne carbon tax later this year and keep it there. He says the federal government should not step in.
