Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe released a video on social media this afternoon, dealing with the current carbon tax from the federal government.
In it, he details the latest exemption for home heating oil, a measure that is primarily practiced in Atlantic Canada.
Moe also cited Liberal Minister of Rural Economic Development Gudie Hutchings, who stated that "perhaps they need to elect more Liberals in the Prairies so that we can have that conversation as well", saying that "this is no way to run a country."
In his statement, he called for the same carbon tax exemptions to be extended to all forms of home heating.
He also said that if that exemption was not put into place, Saskatchewan would no longer be collecting Carbon Tax costs from natural gas starting January 1st, 2024.
Trudeau has provided a carbon tax exemption on home heating for families in one part of the country, but not here.— Scott Moe (@PremierScottMoe) October 30, 2023
