a timetable for the implementation of tax credits for investments in the clean economy. According to the province, this schedule does not provide enough detail, particularly regarding carbon capture, utilization and storage (CUSC).

Danielle Smith added that her government will publish details of the programs online CUSC, next week.
Scott MacDougallSpokesman of the institute Pembinaalso reiterates that the lack of details in the federal communication is a problem.
I think the government needs to be aware of the pressures it faces and the importance of citizens' expectations regarding these investment tax credits.
Danielle Blacksmith adds that his government hopes Ottawa will follow through on its commitment to legislate on the issue before the end of the year. A point that she considers essential to create a functioning framework. According to the economic report, the submission of legislation is for the CUSC and clean technologies will take place in the fall.
