Provincial fuel tax is supposed to help pay for public roads and highways by charging the vehicle owners who use them. The Nova Scotia government gives other resource industries a tax rebate for fuel used in vehicles that do not go on public roads, such as fishing boats, farm tractors and forestry harvesters.
The Mining Association of Nova Scotia (MANS) is pleased the new provincial government budget provides funding to establish the Mineral Resources Development Fund (MRDF).
