Premier Doug Ford will hose gasoline stations with fines of up to $10,000 a day unless they slap oversized Ontario government stickers on pumps warning about the cost of federal carbon-pricing measures.

The hefty cash penalties were buried in the 283-page budget bill tabled Thursday by Finance Minister Vic Fedeli when he unveiled the Progressive Conservatives' record $163.4-billion spending plan.

"We will be doing everything we can, including through the court system to fight this job-killing carbon tax. We will be putting stickers on gas pumps that show just how much Justin Trudeau is taking out of your pocket," Fedeli said Friday in Ajax.
