Province Accused Of Passing Up Clean Energy Jobs

New Brunswick is missing the boat when it comes to funding clean energy projects according to Mark D'Arcy of the Council of Canadians. 

He tells CHSJ News the provincial government could create jobs by following the lead of other jurisdictions in giving tax credits for investing in such things as a community economic development fund and co-ops along with payback loan programmes for residential energy retrofits to make your home more energy efficient.

D'Arcy says this is happening right now in Nova Scotia, P-E-I, Ontario, Vermont, Massachusetts, Germany and Scandanavia but not in New Brunswick.
