TORONTO – A law requiring gas station owners across Ontario to post anti-carbon tax stickers on their pumps came into force Friday, but the province said it won't be issuing fines right away for those who don't comply.

A spokeswoman for Energy Minister Greg Rickford said inspectors who will be checking for the mandatory blue decals won't create a burden for businesses.

"For the first few months, inspectors are focusing on education and helping gasoline retailers come into compliance," Sydney Stonier said in a statement. "After this initial period, inspectors could issue warnings and lay charges as they deem necessary."
