Tax is constitutional says Ontario court.
The federal carbon tax is constitutional says Ontario’s top court, rejecting the argument put forth by the Ford PC Government.
It was a split decision.
The majority of the court says the federal government has the authority to impose the tax, and that doing so is respectful of provincial jurisdiction.
It’s the second court win for the Trudeau government recently, as the Saskatchewan Court of appeal also sided with the federal government.
What this makes clear is that the courts are not the path to defeating the carbon tax. That will have to happen through the electoral process, with ensuring the defeat of the Trudeau Liberals and scrapping the highly unpopular tax through legislative repeal.
