Manitoba's finance minister says the N-D-P government's planned fuel tax holiday will apply to everyone who fills up at gas stations.

Adrien Sala was responding to Tory concerns that the temporary suspension of the 14-cent-a-litre fuel tax won't include snowmobiles, boats, or A-T-Vs.

He says no one will crack down on off-road enthusiasts for using the fuel discount, as long as they fill up at a gas station.

If his bill is passed, it would suspend the fuel tax starting on January 1st for at least six months from farm trucks, firefighting equipment, and vehicles used on roadways
