TORONTO – Premier Doug Ford says gas station owners who don't put his government's anti-carbon tax stickers on their pumps will be fined but won't be handed the maximum penalty available.

Ford says his government will enforce a law passed earlier this year that makes the stickers mandatory, but the fines will be less than $500, not the $10,000 maximum.

The law lets the government send inspectors to see if gas stations are properly displaying the stickers and sets out penalties for non-compliance.
