Just got my $100 ‘Climate Action Dividend‘ cheque in the mail today.
What are you planning on doing with yours? Me personally, I’m depositing into my home fund. I already do a lot to help the environment so I figure it should just go into the account I have for household related expenses. This will undoubtably go towards buying more CFL’s, more energy efficient appliances or something similar for my house.
It’s not really going to make too much of a dent in my gas expenses since I commute a fair distance to work (it equals about two weeks worth of gas for my car) and it’s purpose is to partially offset the forthcoming carbon tax that will be added to gasoline in BC starting July 1st.
I’m not sure this dividend is the best way to deal with carbon offsets but I’ll take the money anyways.
