The threadbare climate and environment policies of Doug Ford's Ontario government are insufficient to meet Ontario's 2030 emission reduction targets and are riddled with errors and omissions, according to the province's fiscal watchdog.

The Progressive Conservative government calculated some reductions based on green policies it scrapped when it came to power last year, double-counted other savings, and failed to properly estimate costs for more than half of the initiatives in its Made-in-Ontario environment plan, Auditor General of Ontario Bonnie Lysyk said.

"Our audit concluded that the emission-reduction estimates in the plan are not based on sound evidence or sufficient detail," Lysyk said in her 2019 annual report, which was released on Wednesday.
