Cabinet must cancel a planned 23 percent increase in the carbon tax, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe yesterday testified by videoconference at the Commons government operations committee. “We don’t need to accept this,” said Moe, who launched a February 29 carbon tax strike on natural gas for home heating.

“Next Monday we are going to see the carbon tax measure increase to a level that was previously never committed to achieve at its introduction,” said Premier Moe. “Our overarching goal is to keep taxes as low as possible, in particular taxes that are ineffective like the carbon tax,” he added.
