Provincial governments giving rebates

In Alberta, the government has reduced gasoline taxes, and is giving a one time rebate of $150 off their hydro bills.
After seven years, the Saskatchewan government is the first province in Canada to return to a balanced budget.
As the budget is balanced, all Saskatchewan taxpayers will be receiving a rebate cheque of $500.
The Manitoba government has stated that Manitoban taxpayers will also be receiving a rebate cheque.
The Ontario government has also reduced the tax on gasoline.
The New Brunswick government is lowering the income tax rates to help out New Brunswick taxpayers.
