Taxpayers Federation committed to continuing the court fight against the carbon tax

SASKATOON, SK: Canadian Taxpayers Federation Federal Director Aaron Wudrick released the following statement in response to the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal’s decision on the constitutionality of the federal carbon tax:

“As interveners in Saskatchewan's court fight against the federal carbon tax, we are disappointed with the outcome, but we are encouraged by the split decision. Carbon tax advocates had long argued this was a ‘slam dunk’ case but the robust dissent offered by two justices proves otherwise.

"The dissenting justices determined that the carbon tax is indeed a tax, that regulating emissions is provincial jurisdiction, and that Parliament cannot intrude upon it.

"Taxpayers are standing with Premier Scott Moe as Saskatchewan continues this fight by appealing to the Supreme Court of Canada. The CTF is committed to seeking intervener status in opposition to this tax.”
