Provincial Government of Ontario Introduces the Cap and Trade Cancellation Act

Published on September 27, 2018


The Hon. Rod Phillips, Minister of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks has opposed the Federal Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act, which would have been set to impose a carbon tax on all major polluting activities that Canadian citizens engage themselves in. Phillips believes that the recent provincial election is indicative of Ontarians’ desire to avoid this new tax, saying, “We heard the people loud and clear: Ontario cannot afford a carbon tax”.


The Conservative Government of Ontario's decision to introduce the Cap and Trade Cancellation Act will cancel the Liberal Government of Canada’s carbon tax, yielding approximately $260 in savings per year for the average family. This decision has been in the works for some time now, with the promise of fighting this specific tax being a significant part of the Conservative Government's platform during the provincial election this year.
