TORONTO — Ontario's government sought the pulse of the public on environmental issues shortly after releasing its climate plan — and the results were not a ringing endorsement.

The Progressive Conservative government cancelled the cap-and-trade program introduced by the former Liberal government to lower greenhouse gas emissions and is fighting Ottawa's carbon tax, which comes into effect Monday.

Their climate plan, unveiled in late November, establishes a fund called the Ontario Carbon Trust, which aims to entice companies to invest in initiatives that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and proposes to make large industrial companies pay for pollution if they exceed certain emissions standards.
