Another Canadian premier is threatening to take Ottawa to court over the carbon tax.
Manitoba’s Brian Pallister said Friday he would do so if the federal government forces his province to charge a higher carbon tax.
Manitoba has a plan that sees a flat tax of $25 per tonne.. The feds have said the provinces must impose a rate of $30 dollars per tonne in year three, 40 in year four and 50 in year 5.
Pallister says a court battle will happen if Ottawa tries to go above the $25 dollar per tonne level.
He adds that he thinks the proposal is an empty threat and he believes the action won’t be needed.
Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe has already indicated they are taking the federal Liberals to court over the contentious carbon tax issue which is one the province has no intention of signing on to.
