STOP NB Power! STOP Taxing Basic Needs!

This petition had 19,572 supporters

During the past month, electricity bills have sky rocketed in New Brunswick. Some residents have shared their monthly bill on social media and you can see a clear increase of over 700$!!

On top of these increases, we are being taxed on a basic human need as if it were a luxury. While I do understand some countries are not as lucky as we are, we are blessed to have the chance to have electricity in every home. 

Every NB resident has the right to have a warm home during the cold winter months. I have seen some residents in distress as they are on a limited income. Nobody should have to choose between warmth or food for their family.

Please help me get 20 000 signatures to show the Government of New Brunswick that we have had enough of NB Power. We need a utility company that serves the people, not the CEO. We should also NOT be taxed on this basic human need in Canada. 

We are lucky to have power across the province, however enough is enough!!!
