North Bay councillor Mike Anthony is again taking up the cause to fight the rising price of gas. This time Anthony is introducing a motion opposing the province’s plan to introduce a cap and trade gas tax. The tax amounts to 4.3 cents a litre but Anthony says the final amount could be higher than this.
It’s because the cap and trade tax may also have the HST added to it, essentially creating a tax on a tax. Anthony will introduce his resolution at the August 8th meeting of council.
