It introduced an oil export tax to finance this policy (which, in effect, subsidized consumers, most of whom lived in central Canada) at the expense of the western provinces. Furthermore, to ensure that Ottawa, and not the provinces, had access to the major share of tax revenues generated by the oil boom, the federal government provided additional regulations that prevented oil companies from claiming royalties paid to the provinces as federal income tax deductions.
