A recent survey by a small business advocacy group has revealed growing discontent among small businesses towards the federal carbon tax.

Data by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) shows that 85% of businesses now oppose the federal carbon tax and want it removed, a significant increase from the 52% opposition recorded just a year ago. The majority of small firms find the tax unfair, especially in light of the federal government’s recent decision to exempt only one heating fuel, heating oil, from the tax.

“Small businesses have been raising their concerns with the carbon tax for years,” said CFIB president Dan Kelly.

“They pay about 40% of the costs of the carbon tax, but the federal government has promised to return only 10% to small businesses.”
