Mr. Speaker, while the Prime Minister was the finance minister the northern allowance tax credit for most of northern Manitoba was cut in half in an arbitrary decision that made no sense. The allowance for Grand Rapids was cut completely. Communities in Quebec as far south as Winnipeg receive a full northern allowance.
At a time when increased fuel costs are having grave impacts for all Canadians, those in remote and northern areas are hit even harder.
Will the government now move to right a wrongful decision and implement the full tax credit?
