Minister Squires reviewed the Carbon Tax issue, our made in Manitoba Plan a projection on direct costs to consumers and intention of the additional revenues. Terry  discussed the continuing value of teh trucking industry, the realities of shipping goods and the innovations that have been researched and continue to be researched to reduce their primary cost - fuel consumption.
