Amendment to the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act (qualifying farming fuel) passes

Introduced by Northumberland-Peterborough South member of parliament Philip Lawrence, the bill extends current exemptions to include natural gas and propane used by farmers.

Lawrence said in his press release, “The support of the NDP and Bloc shows that whether you agree with the Carbon Tax or not, this is a necessary change to support the livelihoods of Canadian farmers … Unfortunately, the failure of the Liberals to support this critical legislation proves again that they are more interested in playing partisan games than helping farmers across Canada.”
