Ontario greenhouses could lose $10M because of new cap-and-trade rules

Ontario, Canada has 2,900 acres of greenhouses, and export over $1 billion of cucumbers, tomatoes, and green peppers to the United States.

Their plants absorb carbon dioxide, but unlike in British Columbia and Alberta, Ontario growers won’t receive a rebate for the carbon consumption, which could cost them around $10 million a year.
