An Abacus Data poll shows that the majority of Canadians want the Trudeau Liberals to provide more carbon tax carve-outs, like they did with home heating oil. 

72% of Canadians want more cuts to Liberal’s carbon tax, poll shows

The November 9 – 12 poll done by 2000 adults reveals that 72% of respondents think more cut outs should be given to home heating other than the narrow exemption the Liberals recently provided.

This comes amid terrible polling numbers for the Liberal Party compared to the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC), and just a few weeks after Trudeau backtracked on his carbon tax scheme with a three year “pause,” but only for home heating oil — something that mostly only Atlantic Canadians use.

According to the poll, 72% want more carve outs than what the Liberal’s are willing to give — and 65% said they think the policy change on home heating oil was a good idea.

The Trudeau Liberals have said that no more carbon tax carve-outs will come. In the House of Commons last week, Trudeau stuck to climate change talking points, in justifying the tax despite the one-off backtrack. 

CPC leader Pierre Poilievre proposed a motion last week to pause the Trudeau carbon tax for three years on all forms of home heating, but his motion lost by a vote of 186 – 135.

Moe to instruct Sask Energy to stop collecting carbon tax 

With many struggling to pay their home heating bills in Saskatchewan, Premier Scott Moe recently said that he will instruct Sask Energy to stop collecting the federal carbon tax on January 1 if Trudeau doesn’t scrap it before then. 

Subsequently, Liberal Finance Minister Chrystia Freeland suggested that it’s possible Moe will get criminally charged if he follows through on his carbon tax ultimatum. 

Along with Saskatchewan’s Premier Moe, Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick have also called for the Trudeau Government to at least pause the carbon tax on all forms of home heating. 

“The federal government has decided that one part of Canada with one type of home heating is worthy of a carbon tax break, while those living elsewhere using another type of home heating do not,” Alberta’s Premier Danielle Smith said earlier this month.

“Further, after telling Canadians for years that rebates covered the costs of the carbon tax for every day consumers, the Feds now admit with this one-region-one-fuel-type-only tax break, this claim is not true.”
