Energy Minister Greg Rickford says Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau's plan to implement national targets for reducing carbon emissions would jeopardize the financial security of all Canadians. Trudeau said in February that a Liberal government would set national targets for reducing carbon emissions but allow provinces to design their own policies to meet them. Rickford says that plan would hurt the economy. (Rickford says Canadians could look forward to higher taxes or a government running an ongoing deficit.)
