  • Premier Doug Ford Announces the End of the Cap-and-Trade Carbon Tax Era in Ontario

Those decisions will take into account his overall plan for the province and the results of an upcoming value-for-money audit of government spending, he said. That law sets climate change targets and earmarks cap-and-trade revenues for green initiatives, among other things, he said.

"The provincial regulations need to align with Health Canada's stance on vaping as a less harmful alternative to smoking to ensure the industry is clear on the legal expectations from both levels of governments", Shaun Casey, president of the Canadian Vaping Association, said.

"We know that the premier. promised to get rid of cap and trade and we understand he's moving quickly to fulfil that promise but I think that there's some problems here because there's some questions that haven't been answered", he said. Analysts have said they expect ditching cap-and-trade will ease the burden on businesses in the short-term. We'll give you an update when we hear back from the Premier's office.


"Every cent from the cap-and-trade slush fund is money that has been taken out of the pockets of Ontario families and businesses", Ford said in a written statement, adding he was fulfilling his election promise to scrap the Liberals' "cash grab" created to fund "big government programs" that "do nothing for the environment". "We have paused the implementation of this section until we can review this provision in full to make sure it is in the best interest of Ontarians", he says.

Michael Berends, managing director at Toronto-based cap-and-trade advisers ClearBlue Markets, said the pace of the government's move leaves many unanswered questions.

According to the official document published on the government website on Friday, June 29, when Doug Ford was sworn in as Prime Minister, expected adjustments of salaries to members of management, senior and middle managers, and employees who are not covered by the employment contract, will not happen as long as "the new government will not be able to implement its strategy for managing the costs".
