Environmental commissioner blasts Ford's PCs for gutting climate change policies - 2018-09-25
Ontario's environmental commissioner, Diane Saxe, has issued a new report slamming Doug Ford's government for gutting most of the province's climate change programs saying it's "bad for our environment, bad for our health, and bad for business."
The report sharply criticizes the Progressive Conservatives' decision to repeal the former Liberal government's cap-and-trade program to limit greenhouse gas emissions. Under the program, a cap was set on greenhouse gas emissions that allowed companies to sell credits if their emissions fell below certain limits.
Ford had campaigned to end carbon pricing, calling it a "government cash grab" that does "nothing for the environment."
