Statement from Minister Yurek on Appealing the Federal Carbon Tax Decision to the Supreme Court of Canada

Published on August 28, 2019

Our government received a strong mandate to bring to an end to the expensive and ineffective cap-and-trade carbon tax. We have delivered on our promise and brought forward our Made-in-Ontario Environment Plan that will help us meet the federally agreed upon targets without a burdensome Carbon Tax. In June, we were disappointed to learn that in a split decision, the Ontario Court of Appeal did not accept our position that the federal carbon tax is unconstitutional. Today, our government filed our appeal of the decision on the carbon tax to the Supreme Court of Canada.
