The Debate: Carbon tax pause, NHL gambling suspension and $10 for a rural lot.

The Debate with Mike Le Couteur

Oct 28 2023 • 41 mins

In this episode Deirdre Mitchell-MacLean and Andrew Perez debate:

  • The federal government is pausing the carbon tax on heating oil where the fuel charge is in effect. The move could save households an average of $250. Is this a smart policy or just playing politics?
  • The NHL suspended Ottawa Senator Shane Pinto 41 games for violating the league's gambling rules. It comes as the NHL has formed close sponsorship ties with gambling websites. Is it hypocritical for the NHL to suspend a player for gambling?
  • A town north of Timmins, Ont. is considering selling property for $10/lot to attract more families. Opponents warn the deep discount could have an negative impact on current taxpayers. Would a $10 lot convince you to move to a remote community?
