Five premiers have sent a joint letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau urging him to remove the carbon tax from all forms of home heating.

Alberta Premier Danielle Smith, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe, Ontario Premier Doug Ford, New Brunswick Premier Blaine Higgs, and Nova Scotia Premier Tim Houston signed the letter calling for equitable treatment for Canadians.

The letter, which was posted on social media by several of the premiers, comes after Mr. Trudeau put a pause on home heating oil—a move that largely benefits Atlantic Canada where 30 percent of homes rely on oil for heat.
