The removal of the carbon tax on home heating has been a huge relief for many southwest residents, even pushing Saskatchewan to the second-lowest inflation rate in the country. 

According to Statistics Canada, Saskatchewan's CPI saw a 1.5 per cent increase in May 2024 compared to May 2023, while the national average sits at a 2.9 per cent increase.

Additionally, the province is currently second in the nation when it comes to real GDP growth, with a 1.6 per cent increase of $1.2 billion.

Jeremy Harrison, Minister of Trade and Export Development, is keen to "tackle inflation" and secure future growth and development in the province.

"The federal carbon tax negatively impacts the interests of this province and the people who live here," noted Harrison. "Our priority will always be the defence of our economic well-being."
