Ontario Premier Doug Ford today
confirmed that, as the first order of business of Ontario’s Government for the
People, his cabinet revoked the regulation that punishes Ontario residents at
the gas pump through a wasteful cap-and-trade carbon tax regime; this measure
comes into effect July 3, 2018. In order to fulfill this election commitment,
the Government of Ontario will immediately begin an orderly wind-down of all
programs funded out of cap-and-trade carbon tax revenues.
