Brady again petitions Ontario to axe carbon tax on home heating

For immediate release:
April 12, 2024

QUEEN’S PARK – MPP Bobbi Ann Brady yesterday stood in the Ontario Legislature to read in more petitions that would ensure Ontarians don’t have to choose between heating and eating.

“Speaker, I have several names here on a petition that calls on the government to provide relief to families from the federal carbon tax,” Brady said. “The petition asks for the government to stop collecting the carbon tax on home heating by following Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe’s lead. I fully support this petition and thank all those who signed it.”

This is the same petition Brady launched on January 12 and originally read into the House late February. The petition regularly arrives in her office with fresh signatures and continues to gain traction throughout Haldimand-Norfolk and across Ontario.

Brady has been encouraged but cautious of provisions of Ontario’s Get It Done Act that requires a referendum before a provincial carbon tax can be introduced. The federal Conservatives maintain their vow to eliminate the carbon tax and keep climbing higher in the polls, so the possibility of a complete elimination of the tax is possible. Nothing above does not, however, prohibit a province from ushering in their own carbon tax, such as was done in British Columbia.

“I will continue to be vigilant on pushing the government to make life more affordable for Ontarians and the hard-working folks of Haldimand-Norfolk,” Brady said.
