Ford Government Unveils Top Legislative Priorities, Including Definitively Striking Down Cap & Trade Carbon Tax Law

Three top priorities for upcoming legislative session.

The Ford government has unveiled their top three priorities for the upcoming legislative session.

“We have decided to recall the house because it is clear there are areas of public interest that require urgent attention,” said Government House Leader Todd Smith. “The people of Ontario cannot afford to wait, and they won’t have to.”

As noted in a release, here are the top three priorities:

  • Protect the students at York University and their families by ensuring that the ongoing labour dispute is quickly and fairly resolved
  • Strike Ontario’s cap-and-trade carbon tax law from the books so that a future government would not impose another cap-and-trade carbon tax under the law
  • Cancel the White Pines Wind Project, effective today, which received notice to proceed during the election period before the government had a chance to make any decision on the project for the benefit of the people of Prince Edward County

While the government has already struck down the regulation imposing the cap & trade carbon tax, scrapping the law is a more permanent solution.

“These three priorities send a clear and serious message about what you can expect from our government,” said Smith. “We are prepared to act. And we will always put the best interests of the people first.”

The puppet Lieberals are attacking Doug Ford repeatedly, just as they did with Mr. Harper and any one who does not follow their propaganda agendas, common sense or looking after Canada is not part of the puppet master agendas, but we love Doug Ford he will make Ontario better fighting a battle the whole way. Doug Ford you’re my hero of common sense, go Conservatives save us! thank you for caring about our country, and all this work needed to clean up… Read more »

The media HATES any government that is conservative. Look at what they have done to PMSH, and now Trump and now Ford. Their hatred will turn on them one day.

Another urgent energy project to kill THE BALA FALLS PROJECT. Physical damage irreparable has been done but the $200 million contract can be killed. Let them sue us if they have the guts.
