November 9, 2023 | The federal government has announced carbon-tax exemptions for household heating and Chris Ragan joined Power & Politics to talk about these exemptions. Chris Ragan has stated that carbon-tax exemptions might not be the way to energy affordability, usually because exemptions are often extended and there is no end to these exemptions due to political pressures. 

"This exemption threatens the future of the policy to reduce emissions," said Chris Ragan. Affordability is a growing issue in Canada in general considering the increasing inflation rates and Chris Ragan talks about initiatives to make life more affordable including grocery rebates. "I think there was an option to scale up the rebate and leave the carbon-pricing price", he adds.
