The Ford government is bracing for a sharply critical report from Ontario's auditor general that will cast doubt on its forecasts for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Auditor General Bonnie Lysyk has the authority to review the government's progress toward hitting its climate change targets, partially replacing the role played by Ontario's environmental commissioner, a position the Ford government scrapped this year.

Multiple sources close to the government tell CBC News that Lysyk's report will question whether the measures in the Progressive Conservatives' "Made in Ontario Environment Plan" will be sufficient to meet the province's commitments on cutting carbon emissions by 2030, in line with the Paris Accord.
