This House believes that provincial governments in Canada should have full authority over environmental legislation.

Cette assemblée accorderait aux législatures provinciales du Canada la juridiction exclusive de faire des lois relatives à l'environnement.

Info Slide: On April 1, 2019, the Canadian government implemented the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act which imposed a federal carbon tax on four provinces who did not meet federal requirements for carbon pricing. This legislation has been constitutionally challenged in two provinces and is currently before the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal.
