NEW DEMOCRATS WILL REMOVE THE HST ON RENEWABLE ENERGY

SUMMERSIDE, PE – New Democrats will remove the HST on renewable energy goods and services.

“Islanders deserve a government that will help our transition to renewable energy,” said Redmond. “An NDP government will remove the HST from renewable energy goods and services.”

Redmond also announced that NDP’s Environmental Partnership Agenda will benefit Summerside and its residents. Summerside has its own electrical utility. Its residents will benefit from rewards and incentives under the Environmental Partnership Agenda.

“A community like Summerside should be rewarded for its efforts in support of sustainability,” said Redmond. “With strong voices like Olivia Wood and Scott Gaudet in the Legislature, Summerside will get the quality representation it deserves.”
