The premier of Saskatchewan said “No” to his citizens being charged carbon tax and so now Saskatchewan and eastern Canada are not paying carbon tax.
To add insult the rest of us not only pay carbon tax on home heating, we also pay GST on that tax. Tax on tax!
In April 2016, the Canada Revenue Agency said provincial carbon taxes would be subject to GST.
As much as $150 million in GST in Alberta and B.C. is generated for the feds on taxing carbon tax.
Carbon tax in Alberta amounts to over $1.7 billion going to Trudeau.
