An Angus Reid poll suggests some in Saskatchewan are changing their mind when it comes to the carbon tax after hearing of the federal government’s plan to give taxpayers a cheque.
The poll says since that plan was announced by the government on October 23, support in Saskatchewan for the tax has risen by 18 percent which is the largest amongst the provinces.

On a national level, the support for the plan remains quite close with 54 percent of Canadians saying they support the tax.
The poll was conducted across the country between October 24 and 29th with 1500 Canadians who are a part of the Angus Reid Forum being asked a variety of questions on the issue.
