Doug Ford Vows To Take His Carbon Tax Fight To Canada's Most Powerful Court - 2019-06-28
The Ontario Court of Appeal decided today that the federal government is within their rights to put a price on the carbon tax, as well as collect revenues from polluters in provinces that are failing to meet the national standards. However, after that verdict, Doug Ford's carbon tax fight is getting ready to go to the Supreme Court.
The court ruled that the carbon pricing scheme set up by the Trudeau government is constitutionally sound and has the critical purpose of fighting climate change.
Following the decision, Doug Ford announced that he will seek leave to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, the highest court in the country, saying that 'the federal government's carbon tax is making life more expensive for Ontarians and is putting jobs and businesses at risk."
