At the Saskatchewan legislature this week, the
Government of Saskatchewan passed a motion to oppose
the federal carbon tax and propose an alternative to
invest instead in research and development.
The Sask. Party government is sending a message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his Liberal government opposing the carbon tax.
“It (a carbon tax) would hurt the economy of Saskatchewan and especially to bring it in at a time when the economy is struggling, it’s just wrong,” said Moose Jaw North MLA Warren Michelson. “It’s the wrong tax to be imposed on Saskatchewan people at this time and there are other alternatives that would make more sense."
