New, Watered-Down Carbon Tax Changes Nothing

August 9, 2018 - 8:46am

A Made-in-Ottawa Carbon Tax will impact Saskatchewan’s economy to the tune of $1.8 billion each and every year while only marginally reducing carbon emissions.

After two years of telling us that a carbon tax would not affect Canada’s competitiveness and hurt our economy, the federal government has finally admitted that it will.

The Trudeau government recently announced that they will now reduce the amount of tax companies are required to pay on their greenhouse gas emissions.

3 Year Plan to Balance Budget on Track

June 28, 2018 - 11:03am

Our government’s three-year plan to balance the budget is on track at a time when Saskatchewan taxpayers are also helping to balance the budgets of other provinces, such as Quebec.

Through the federal equalization program, taxpayers in Saskatchewan are funding programs and services in other provinces, even when those other provinces’ economies are strong.

Just last year, equalization made up 10 per cent of Quebec’s revenue – over $11 billion. This was a year in which that province posted a $2 billion surplus.
