Sean Weir, Conservative Candidate for Oakville North-Burlington, announced the next step in Andrew Scheer’s Conservative plan to help Canadians get ahead by reducing their home heating and energy bills.
“In Canada, heating your home is a necessity – not a luxury,” said Weir. “Residents in Oakville and Burlington keep telling me they’re just getting by and not getting ahead, partly due to their home energy bills.”
That is why a Conservative government, led by Prime Minister Andrew Scheer, will remove the GST from home heating bills, including electricity, natural gas, heating oil, wood pellets and other heating sources, to put more money back into the pockets of hardworking Canadians. This will save the average Ontario household $113 per year.
“Of all the things Canadian homeowners need to worry about, heating and powering their homes should not be the first thing,” said Sean Weir. “Today’s plan, along with our promise to cancel Justin Trudeau’s Carbon Tax, will help make life more affordable for Canadians.”
Life is getting more expensive. The soaring cost of energy is especially difficult for seniors and those living on a fixed income.
“We are proud of this plan because taking the tax off home energy makes sense,” said Sean Weir. “It will put money back into the pockets of hardworking Canadians. This is yet another way a Conservative government led by Andrew Scheer will help Canadians get ahead.”
