Premier Scott Moe announced Saskatchewan intends on intervening in Ontario’s legal fight against the federal government’s carbon tax.
Ontario is doing the same in Saskatchewan’s carbon tax case.
Premier Moe called on the Trudeau government to delay implementation until the court cases are resolved and not make infrastructure funding conditional on support for Ottawa’s so-called carbon tax.
“They should respect the courts, do what they said they would do and move forward.” Moe added.
The announcement was made today (Thurs) after Moe and Ontario Premier Doug Ford held a meeting in Saskatoon.
Ford used the occasion to send a message to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
“You either stand with families, and businesses and hard-working people across this great province or you stand with the carbon tax,” Ford stated. “But I can tell you this, you can’t sit on the fence, because when you sit on the fence you get splinters.”
The list of provinces opposing the carbon tax continues to grow. Yesterday (Wed) Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister announced the province is rejecting the tax as well.
