It's too early to judge Ontario's climate change plan, Premier Doug Ford insists in the wake of a sternly worded independent report warning the province is not on track to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets under the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Ford took issue with the conclusions reached by provincial auditor general Bonnie Lysyk, who devoted a separate 180-page volume in her annual report to the Progressive Conservative government's handling of environmental matters.

She found Ford's climate change plan is not based on "sound evidence" and is likely to fall as much as two-thirds below the target of lowering greenhouse gas emissions to 30 per cent below 2005 levels by the end of the next decade.
