Prime Minister Justin Trudeau yesterday rejected a carbon tax break for homeowners heating with natural gas. “There will absolutely not be any other carve-outs or suspension of the price on pollution,” Trudeau told reporters.

The remark followed notice by Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe that SaskEnergy Incorporated, the provincial natural gas distributor, will suspend its collection of the 12¢ per cubic metre federal carbon tax effective January 1. The Saskatchewan tax strike followed the federal cabinet’s suspension of its 17¢ per litre carbon tax on home heating oil effective November 10, a tax holiday mainly benefiting householders in Atlantic Canada.
