The SaskParty government and the NDP are battling over the issue of a federal carbon tax.
Opposition leader Ryan Meili accuses the Moe government of embarking on a pointless costly crusade to fight Ottawa in court over a proposed carbon tax.
He says the Manitoba government spent 40 thousand dollars on a legal consultation to determine such a battle could not be won.
Premier Scott Moe says the NDP is waving a white flag and willing to give in to a costly carbon tax, but his government is prepared to fight Ottawa over the issue.
Moe says a federal carbon tax would take billions of dollars out of the provincial economy.
