As the city heads into the new year, Mayor Peter Kelly says he wants to build a stronger relationship with the province. He also wants a portion of the gas tax.

In an interview this week, Kelly said it’s time for the Nova Scotia NDP to follow the lead of other Canadian provinces.

“(The province) should be looking at rebating or giving back as they do elsewhere in the country,” he said, noting that Edmonton and Calgary receive five cents on every gas-tax dollar from their provincial government, Vancouver receives 12.5 cents and Montreal receives 1.5 cents.

A spokesman from the Finance Department was not available for comment yesterday.
