The Manitoba government has introduced a bill to temporarily lift the provincial tax on fuel.
Premier Wab Kinew promised the measure during the recent election campaign as a way to help people with the rising cost of living.
The bill proposes lifting the 14-cent-a-litre tax on gasoline, diesel and natural gas used in motor vehicles from Jan. 1 to the end of June.
Finance Minister Adrien Sala has said the tax suspension could be extended if inflation remains high.
The fuel tax brings in roughly $340 million a year for the province.
The NDP government is hoping to have the bill passed by the legislature before the winter break starts on Dec. 7.
