REGINA – The minister responsible for Saskatchewan’s energy utility says the province will not be remitting the federal carbon levy on natural gas to Ottawa.

Premier Scott Moe posted a video on X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, of Dustin Duncan making the announcement outside the Parliament Buildings.

Duncan says the decision wasn’t made lightly and the provincial government recognizes there will be consequences.

More coming.
