TORONTO — The Ontario government says it has taken the next step in its legal challenge against the federal government’s carbon tax plan.
Environment Minister Rod Phillips says the government has filed a statement in court outlining its arguments that Ottawa’s carbon pricing plan is unconstitutional.
The province argues the federal government does not have the power to put a price on greenhouse gases because provinces are able to regulate them themselves.
