No Trans Mountain, no payment: Alberta rancher refuses to pay carbon tax portion of heating bill

A woman who runs a ranch with her husband west of Calgary is refusing to pay the carbon tax, arguing the province should remove the tax after repeated setbacks to expanding the Trans Mountain pipeline.

In a tersely worded letter to the Superior Propane company based in Mississauga, Ont., Sheila Griffith explains that she won’t be paying the $101.90 carbon tax portion of her heating bill, addressing both Premier Rachel Notley and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about their failure to get more Alberta oil to tidewater.

Good for her.
