NDP CALLS ON GOVERNMENT TO ELIMINATE OR REDUCE UNNECESSARY USER FEES

 

 

The Nova Scotia NDP is calling on the Houston government to eliminate or reduce what it is calling unnecessary user fees, including vehicle fees.

 

The party wants the government to completely scrap vehicle licence renewals.

 

“This is the most expensive sticker you’ll ever buy, and the government requires you to spend this money,” says Leader Claudia Chender. “In the face of the current affordability crisis, the premier could give everyday Nova Scotians a break and waive these fees.” 

 

The party is also calling on the government to reduce Motor Vehicle Inspections to every five years from the current two-year requirement, which it says will bring Nova Scotia more in line with other provinces. Depending on the weight of the vehicle, current biannual vehicle inspection fees in the province can range from $150 to more than $300.  

 

In addition to vehicle-based fees, that NDP wants the government to eliminate fees for basic identification cards and name or address change requests.
