TORONTO -- Ontario's action plan on climate change will include financial incentives to get cleaner, more efficient cars and trucks on the roads and to convince homeowners and businesses to lower their carbon footprints, The Canadian Press has learned.

The plan, scheduled to be released Wednesday, which calls for government spending of $5.9 billion to $8.3 billion on climate change initiatives over the next five years.

The money would come from the $1.9 billion the Liberal government expects to raise each year by auctioning off pollution emission credits when Ontario joins a cap-and-trade market with Quebec and California next January.
