Ontario, Canada has 2,900 acres of greenhouses, and export over $1 billion of cucumbers, tomatoes, and green peppers to the United States. But greenhouse growers are saying they'll suffer under the province's new climate action plan. 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.
