QUEEN’S PARK — NDP Leader Andrea Horwath released the following statement on this March 25th,s 2021 Supreme Court of Canada ruling, which strikes down the Doug Ford Conservatives’ legal challenge against the federal carbon price:
“Doug Ford has been waging a war on climate action, wasting Ontario’s money to fight his basic obligation to try to leave our children and grandchildren with a livable world.
This ruling by Canada’s top court affirms that Doug Ford’s political game-playing to justify his anti-environment crusading doesn’t hold up.
Doug Ford wasted hundreds of millions of dollars ripping down wind farms and tearing electric vehicle charging stations out of the ground, and he wasted time and money on this court challenge.
We only have two choices: the federal price on carbon, or a provincial climate plan that benefits the people of this province.
Doug Ford chose the federal carbon tax. We choose our climate plan to tackle the climate crisis and create hundreds of thousands of jobs right here in Ontario.”
