Today The Ontario Government Goes To Court With The Federal Government Over The Carbon Tax

You’ve heard Premier Ford talk about it since the election campaign last Spring and today is the day the federal and Ontario governments will square off in court over Ottawa’s contentious carbon tax.  At issue is the validity of federal legislation that imposes a charge on industrial polluters, and on gasoline and other fossil fuels in the four provinces that refused to impose their own carbon pricing regimes. Ontario claims Ottawa overstepped its bounds in imposing the tax on provinces. But Ottawa says it’s reacting appropriately to the nationwide crisis presented by climate change. The hearing before the Ontario Court of Appeal is set to last four days and curious Canadians can follow along at home via livestream.
