The new institute, called the Pan-Canadian Expert Collaboration, is meant to hold Ottawa to account on its policies to reduce carbon pollution. The eligibility requirements for the competitive process that established it were that Ottawa would play "no role" in its governance, operations, board or activities.

But on Tuesday, David Tarrant, Ford's executive director of strategic communications said that description was all "Liberal spin." In a tweet, Tarrant cast a skeptical eye on the institute's independence, calling it an "elite pro-carbon tax 'institute'" that contained "puppets."

Ford's office declined to cite any evidence to back up its claim that the new climate change accountability institute was biased.
