Saskatchewan and Ontario reject most cost effective way to reduce carbon pollution

Pembina Institute reacts to the joint statement from Ontario and Saskatchewan on carbon pricing

OTTAWA — Isabelle Turcotte, interim federal policy director at the Pembina Institute, made the following comment in response to the joint statement released today from Ontario and Saskatchewan.

“It is deeply irresponsible of the Saskatchewan and Ontario governments to reject carbon pricing. Canadians expect their governments to address climate change, one of the most serious issues facing us today. It is a failure of leadership to reject the most cost effective way to reduce pollution. This move undermines Canada’s obligations to do its fair share to protect our communities from a changing climate.  Read more about Saskatchewan and Ontario reject most cost effective way to reduce carbon pollution
