Today, Premier Scott Moe announced the Saskatchewan Government is asking a court to rule on the constitutionality of the federal carbon tax.
In response, Ontario PC Leader Doug Ford issued the following statement:
“The Ontario PC Party supports Saskatchewan’s court challenge. I have always been very clear; the people of Ontario can’t afford a carbon tax in whatever name or form. Not now. Not ever.
“Kathleen Wynne’s cap-and-trade carbon tax is nothing but a slush fund that takes money out of the pockets of hard-working people and kills jobs here in Ontario. This expensive scheme ships hundreds of millions of dollars to California, and raises the price of everything from gasoline to groceries.
“The Ontario PCs will scrap Kathleen Wynne’s cap-and-trade carbon tax, and fight any effort by Justin Trudeau and the Federal Government to impose a carbon tax on the people of Ontario.”
