The #HarvestFromHell Campaign will help inform the government just how much the carbon tax is costing farmers. Grain growers need to tell their story, and we are going to take our united message straight to the policy makers in Ottawa.
Minister Bibeau has stated that she needs more data on how much farmers had to pay in carbon taxes to dry their grain, before she will consider compensation or an exemption for next year. We want to help her. Please submit what the carbon tax portion of your natural gas or propane bill was for the 2019 harvest.
As an added bonus, you got to pay a tax on a tax! Please tell us how much GST you had to pay on the carbon tax specifically as well.
We will be compiling, analyzing and anonymizing this data to present directly to the Minister during Grain Week (February 17-20th) so that she can know exactly how much farmers had to pay, and why they are not better off with a carbon tax.
Please Share this page across your social media platforms so we can provide the Minister as much evidence as possible!
