In Ottawa, the Canadian federal government reports it will spend more than $40 million of federal carbon tax revenue to help 172 schools in Ontario improve energy efficiency, cut energy consumption and costs, reduce emissions, make learning environments cleaner and healthier and improve air quality -- a hot-button issue during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ontario Files Top Court Challenge to Fed. Carbon Tax (Ind Report)
Ontario Carbon Tax
Date: 2019-08-30
Reporting from Queens Park, Ontario Premier Doug Ford's (C) government reports it has filed a challenge with the country's top court against the Canadian Federal government's carbon tax.

The province, Canada's most populous, argues that Ontario's Court of Appeal was wrong to find the carbon price was "constitutional and within the federal government's right to impose." Federal lawyers had argued that the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act -- under which the carbon tax is imposed -- was a legitimate response to potentially catastrophic climate change.

Recently released research from the University of Toronto has found that the vast majority of Toronto area commuters favor the Liberal federal Government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's imposed new carbon tax and tax rebate plan, despite the impending hike in gas prices.

The plan was rolled out by the Canadian Government today, Monday, April 1. In the initial study, 28 pct opposed the pricing plan and 13 pct were undecided. But when told about the rebate aspect of the carbon tax program, the number of Ontarians in the GTHA who actually support the plan rose to an unexpected 70 pct majority.

Notable Quote from Ontario Premier Doug Ford
Carbon Tax
Date: 2019-01-24
"I'm here today to ring the warning bell that the risk of a carbon tax recession is very, very real. A carbon tax will be a total economic disaster, not only for our province (Ontario) but for our entire country Ccanada). There are already economic warning signs on the horizon." -- Ontario Premier Hon. Doug Ford (C)

The freshman Ontario Premier, not unlike the populist US president Donald Trump, ran a campaign and was elected on promises. Premier Ford promised to cut the price of beer to $1.00 a can and to scrap the preceding Liberal govenment's carbon tax, cap-and-trade system. Contact: Office of Ontario Premier Doug Ford,
