The Saskatchewan Government finally has a date for when their constitutional reference case regarding the federal carbon tax will be heard by the provincial Court of Appeal.
The province says they’ve been informed the case will be heard on February 13th and 14th by the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
At the end of April, the government had announced they were intending to go to court to find out if the federal government’s law to impose a carbon tax was constitutional.
The federal government contends the carbon tax is in the national interest, therefore they have the right to charge a carbon tax.
A report released in September by the Canadians For Clean Prosperity, argues households in heavy emitting provinces, like Saskatchewan, would benefit from a carbon tax.
