QUEEN'S PARK -- Premier Doug Ford's government spent $4 million on anti-carbon tax television, radio and online commercials as part of an ongoing campaign against the federal regulatory price on carbon emissions.

Ontario's Auditor General's review of the "One Little Nickle" commercials found the primary objective of the ad campaign was to foster a "negative impression of the federal government and its carbon pricing policy.

Bonnie Lysyk also notes the taxpayer-funded commercials were designed to present a "positive impression of the provincial governing party."
