‘I cannot accept the federal government giving an affordability break to people in one part of Canada, but not here,’ said Premier Moe.

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says if the federal government doesn’t extend the carbon tax exemption to all types of home heating fuels, his province will stop collecting the tax.

“I cannot accept the federal government giving an affordability break to people in one part of Canada, but not here,” Mr. Moe said in a video posted on X on Oct. 30.

Last week, the federal government announced a series of changes to its carbon tax policy to address affordability issues, including putting a pause on the tax for home heating oil. This type of heating is primarily used in the Atlantic provinces.
