March 2024 I wanted to respond to letter writer Annabelle Groves, particularly her statement questioning Canadians “… who parrot the phrase “axe the tax” not regularly receiving rebate cheques from the federal government?” Well, I receive a carbon tax refund, but I still believe in “Axe the Tax.” A carbon tax is a tax and …
