The Conservati­ve government is designing a plan to offer incentives for cities and organizati­ons that take their own initiative­s to reduce greenhouse gases, Environmen­t Minister Rona Ambrose said yesterday. Ms. Ambrose said many cities are not getting credit for their existing investment­s on energy efficiency plans for the environmen­t. She wants to set up a system that would allow them to profit from their efforts on an emissions trading market. “ It’s just another way to get people involved,” Ms. Ambrose said in an interview.
