LETTER: Excessive tax charged on natural gas

Concerned about the carbon tax

Regarding your Viewpoint article in Friday’s paper, my concern is the carbon tax, specifically the carbon tax on natural gas, the “environmentally friendly” fuel.

While gas and diesel have a levy between approximately six and seven per cent of the cost of a litre, natural gas is assessed a carbon tax of 70 per cent to 130 per cent, depending on usage, on the cost of the amount of natural gas used.

This is excessive. It would appear neither political party will address this issue.
