Conservative Party of Canada has pledged to reduce Federal Fuel Excise Tax on Aviation Fuel



    OTTAWA, Sept. 9 /CNW Telbec/ - The Air Transport Association of Canada
(ATAC) is gratified to learn that the Conservative Party of Canada has pledged
to reduce Federal Fuel Excise Tax on Aviation Fuel from 4 cents a litre to
2 cents a litre. The reduction will amount to a savings of approximately
$50 million annually to the industry.
    Interim President Michael Skrobica noted that "the savings proposed by
Prime Minister Harper will aid air transport operators who have been hard hit
by significantly higher fuel costs this year".
    Mr. Skrobica added "this reduction in the Fuel Excise Tax would amount to
the first reduction in the tax since it was introduced in 1985 and would serve
as an example to the provinces who levy similar fuel excise taxes at varying
rates".
