Hamilton retailer sent mandatory Ontario gas pump stickers even though he doesn't sell gas - 2019-09-01
Jennifer Keesmaat, the former chief city planner and one-time Toronto mayoral candidate, tweeted a photo of a peeling decal on a gas pump Saturday afternoon. "Even the gas pumps themselves are rejecting these ridiculous anti-carbon tax stickers," Keesmaat wrote.
The government initially threatened fines of up to $10,000 per day against stations that did not post the decals. It has since changed course and now suggests that businesses that don't co-operate with the legislation will be subjected to "written warnings" and potentially fined. In the letter provided to business owners, it is not specified what the fines might be.
