Editor, The News:
In the MacDuff’s Call article, “Individuals must make real green changes, Oct. 25, The News), Cheryl Ashlie mentions how one company offered to contribute a sum of money to each employee who decides to purchase an electric vehicle.
Good idea, very progressive.
I think, however, that idea would go over much better if people would also talk to their MPs to lobby Parliament to make that contribution from the employer non-taxable.
There really is not much point in making a contribution to an employee for that purpose if it is going to be treated as taxable income and possibly boost me into a higher income bracket.
