The Ontario government has filed an appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada to re-examine a ruling by the province's top court that found the federal price on carbon is constitutionally sound.

In a statement released Wednesday, Ontario Environment Minister Jeff Yurek said the Ford government remains committed to "using every tool at our disposal" to fight against the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, enacted by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Liberal government in April.

"We have seen the very real costs on the people of Ontario," Yurek said.
