The federal environment minister stopped by her local hardware store to highlight items Canadians can purchase with their carbon pricing rebates to reduce their energy usage and their effects on the climate.

As the federal government pushes its carbon pricing plan, the environment minister stopped by an Ottawa store to give examples of ways Canadians can reduce their energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions.

The federal carbon pricing plan will make some things -- like gasoline -- more expensive, but the government says that will be offset in Ontario, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan by a Climate Action Incentive payment. The payments will be given out when Canadians file their taxes; the government says a family of four in Ontario will receive at least $307 in 2019.
