Sidewalk Tax? You Must Jest?

Yes, the www.sidewalktax.ca is a jest, it’s poking fun at the Saskatchewan Governmenet in a way that might pique your interest if you’re just an average driver going about your day. They’re running radio ads, and there’s less than a week remaining in the campaign where they’ll refund the EV tax for Saskatchewan drivers who’ve registered an EV. It’s a bit of a fund raiser for the Sask Environmental Society, and Lung Association of Sask also.

And is the EV tax fair? No, it’s completely unfair. It’s a stab at EV owners who are doing more about the climate crisis than the entire Government of Saskatchewan, which is owned in part by the fossil fuel industry. The math shows the government is collecting a lot more in payments from EV owners than ICE car drivers. Even so, it’s still a better idea to get an EV than a gas-burning car or truck, and saves you money in the long run.
