(July 15, 2022) – Tony Wakeham, PC Official Opposition Shadow Minister of Finance and MHA for Stephenville-Port au Port, is looking for details about the delayed Home Heat Rebate Program, noting that the delay demonstrates the Liberal Government is continuing to ignore the cost of living crisis in this province.

“Months ago, in response to public and political outcry regarding the increasing cost of living, the Liberal Government promised a Home Heat Rebate Program. Since that time, no more details have been made available,” said Wakeham.

“I have received numerous calls from people who are wondering how to apply and when they will receive their rebates. Everyone is wondering ‘where is the promised Home Heat Rebate Program?’”

Wakeham continued to note that the cost to live in Newfoundland and Labrador keeps rising, while the Liberals sit by and watch.

“The people of this province struggled through a long cold winter, with rising fuel costs, without any help from the Liberal Government to heat their homes. Government needs to get this rebates into the pockets of the people of our province who are still feeling pressure of costs from last winter. As mortgage rates increase, the cost of food and goods continue to rise, there’s a snowball effect of cost increases facing every single person in Newfoundland and Labrador. The Liberal Government thinks it can wait. The people of our province know they cannot,” said Wakeham.

“It shouldn’t cost residents this much to live in Newfoundland and Labrador. For over a year, while I have been advocating for relief on the cost of living, the Liberal Government have been ignoring the cries of residents. The Liberal Government must finally open the Home Heating Rebate Program.”
