A majority of Canadians seem to be backing the fight Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe is having with the federal government over carbon pricing.
An Angus Reid poll shows 64 percent of Canadians asked think the provinces should be the one deciding how to reduce emissions and not the federal government.
72 percent agree with Moe’s decision to have the province’s own plan in place with that number sitting at 88 percent in Saskatchewan.
A new poll from @angusreidorg shows overwhelming support for SK’s court challenge of the Trudeau carbon tax.
88% of Sask, and 72% of all CDNs, support our fight of the federal carbon tax in court.
We will keep standing up for SK against the costly and destructive carbon tax. pic.twitter.com/dhZHz3wD7G

Looking at the numbers on a national level, support for a federal carbon plan overall has dropped from 56 per cent in 2015 to 45 per cent now.
1,500 people across Canada who signed up to respond to Angus Reid polls were surveyed. The Angus Reid Institute reports a margin of error of 2.2 percent 19 times out of 20.
