United for Lower Costs
BC United Leader Kevin Falcon unveiled the first batch of affordability-focused policy initiatives, ready to roll out under a BC United government, all aimed at easing the financial load on people across the province.
BC United’s key priorities include:
End the Pain at the Pumps
People need to get to and from work and school, but they’re stretched thin. They need a break from the pain at the pumps. Kevin Falcon and BC United will permanently eliminate the provincial fuel tax, saving drivers up to 15 cents per litre on gasoline and diesel.
Cancel Eby’s Carbon Tax Hikes
Kevin Falcon and a BC United government would end David Eby’s planned carbon tax hikes, recognizing British Columbians can’t afford further NDP tax hikes during a cost-of-living crisis.
Provide Affordable Home Heating
Heating our homes is essential, and budgets are tighter than ever. Kevin Falcon and BC United will immediately remove the carbon tax from all home heating fuels to ensure a level playing field with other provinces.
Lower Food Costs
Groceries have never been more expensive, and British Columbians need relief. Kevin Falcon and BC United will remove the carbon tax from on-farm fuel use, reducing operational costs for farmers. In conjunction with the elimination of the provincial fuel tax, this will make groceries more affordable for everyone.
