The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) released a Leger poll indicating that 77% of Atlantic Canadians favour removing the carbon tax from all types of home heating energy.“The poll is crystal clear: more than three-quarters of Atlantic Canadians don’t think the government should be taxing people for heating their homes,” said Franco Terrazzano, federal director of CTF. “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tried to buy off MPs in the region with his carbon tax carve-out, but Atlantic Canadians are demanding relief that’s fair for everyone.”The federal government plans to eliminate the carbon tax on furnace oil for three years.
