Scheer promises to scrap clean fuel standards alongside carbon tax if elected

Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer is promising to scrap new standards that will force cleaner-burning fuels in addition to eliminating the federal price on carbon if his party wins the fall federal election.

In a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday, Scheer surmises the new standards could increase the cost of gas by at least four cents a litre over and above the government’s carbon tax.
