QUEEN’S PARK — Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to the provincial government’s carbon tax appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada:
“I, like many Ontarians, am frustrated that the Premier continues to waste our tax dollars on his politically motivated legal challenge to undermine climate solutions.
We are facing a climate crisis that is costing us more each day.
Instead of working on solutions, the Premier continues to use our children’s future as a political wedge issue to attack the federal government. This is wrong and reckless.
I urge the Premier to put his time and our money towards delivering climate solutions, not wasting his time fighting a hopeless legal battle.
Our children and grandchildren deserve a Premier that is focused on embracing the clean and caring economy, so they have a livable planet and prosperous future.”
