Whereas, in Ontario, we don’t have a choice but to heat our homes in the winter;
Whereas, the MPP for Orléans was the first to call on the Government to remove the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) from home heating in Ontario;
Whereas, by taking the HST off home heating, families will receive a direct financial benefit every time they pay their bills;
Whereas, this is a simple and sensible measure that will make life more affordable and fairer for Ontarians;
Whereas, the Ontario Government has had countless opportunities to save Ontario families money, but instead, has continued to ask other levels of government to act;
Whereas, families are facing an affordability crisis and Ontario has tools to provide savings to families this winter, Ontario is choosing to do nothing;
We call on the Premier and the Government of Ontario to Cut the HST from Home Heating.
