Members of Parliament will Vote on a motion from the federal Conservatives today, which calls for the carbon price to be exempted from all forms of home Heating, not just heating oil. Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre criticizes Prime Minister Trudeau for engaging in regional favoritism with the temporary heating oil exemption. Trudeau argues that heating oil is more expensive than natural gas and that households in Atlantic Canada need more time to replace their furnaces with heat pumps. The New Democrats plan to vote in favor of the motion, after failing to convince the Conservatives to remove the GST from home heating instead.
