Ontario's top court will release its ruling on the constitutionality of the federal carbon tax on Friday.

The Court of Appeal heard arguments over four days in April after the Progressive Conservative government challenged the levy, arguing it allows Ottawa to step into areas of provincial authority, undermining co-operative federalism.

The court case is just one of the ways in which the Ontario government has gone after the tax.
