A day after Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer made a pre-election pledge to cancel Team Trudeau's plan to impose new clean fuel standards and two more provinces governed by small-c conservative parties joined the legal fray over the constitutionality of the federal carbon pricing regime, the soon-to-be-campaigning Liberals have convened a mid-morning media briefing to highlight "the challenges raised by Conservative politicians working against climate action."

As per the advisory — which, it's worth noting, was issued by the party's caucus research bureau — Ottawa Vanier MP Mona Fortier will hit the stage at the National Press Theatre later this morning to "provide an update on our fight against climate change."

Joining her at the microphone will be Prince Edward Island Liberal MP Sean Fraser, who serves as parliamentary secretary to Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.
