The Liberal Official Opposition has learned that Island Waste Management
Corporation (IWMC) is attempting to increase fees for household garbage
removal this April.
Dennis King and the Conservative Government are allowing life to get more
expensive in PEI. Amidst a severe cost of living crisis, Island residents don’t
deserve to bear the burden of another rate increase.
Previously, the provincial government provided low level subsidies to IWMC in
2022 and 2023, but now they are abandoning this commitment and passing the
cost on to Islanders.
When will Dennis King and his government understand that
Islanders’ financial well-being needs to be a priority?
It’s time for responsible and compassionate action to ease the strain on PEI
households. As the Official Opposition, we are calling on this government to help
Islanders by maintaining IWMC rates at 2021 levels. Islanders do not need to face
any more increased costs.
