Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says a government led by him would scrap what he has dubbed a "secret fuel tax" — a plan by the Liberal government to improve fuel standards through regulatory changes that have not yet been finalized.

In addition to the existing carbon tax regime, the Liberal government has said it wants to make the fuel supply (like gas for autos or home heating fuel) cleaner, to reduce carbon emissions and help Canada meet targets set under the Paris climate change accord.

"While you have never had to worry about paying more at the pump, for some families living paycheque to paycheque, an extra $100 a month matters," Scheer said in a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
