The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal has decided what groups and governments have been granted intervener status in Saskatchewan’s carbon tax case.
Out of all the 16 organizations that applied, all 16 have been granted the opportunity to present their thoughts on the tax in court next February.
Justice Minister Don Morgan says having all the groups present will bring various points of view to the table in two months time and Morgan believes it was the right decision by the court to allow all of the organizations that applied.
The justice minister adds once the matter has made its way through the Court of Appeal, he suspects it will come forward to the Supreme Court of Canada.
Some of the organizations granted intervener status include the Assembly of First Nations, the Athabasca Chipewyan and the Canadian Taxpayers Federation.
