NDP Reacts to Budget Effects on Northerners

- Advertisement -

The NDP is shocked by the provincial budget, saying there are essentially no impacts for Northerners.

That comment comes from the provincial New Democrat leader, Andrea Horwath, who says the government did nothing to mitigate costs on low impact families or northerners.

One of the biggest areas of concern is the cap and trade plan, which Horwath says the NDP was looking for fairness.

But, Horwath says the Liberals didn’t bother to do that. She also points out that there is also no alleviation for low-income families.

The average household is looking at a 13-dollar increase in energy and fuel costs by 2017 under the cap-and-trade plan.
