Why Quebec’s intervening in Saskatchewan’s carbon tax challenge | Power & Politics Why Quebec’s intervening in Saskatchewan’s carbon tax challenge | Power & PoliticsNews of 550 Bombardier layoffs in Thunder Bay has bumped into the ongoing printers meeting in Saskatoon want to do something about it, but when it comes to the constitutionality of a federal carbon tax or seems to be a consensus earlier, this week announced it would join. Saskatchewan legal challenge of the carbon tax that we see appeal to the Supreme Court that is first provinces to Institute its own carbon pricing program. Has the federal government imposing won all over the country decided to go with the Supreme Court to contest the jury? Dick of the federal government to choose the week we will reduce greenhouse gas. We disagree with the federal government trying to impose his way of a taxing carbon and the Parliamentary assistant to the premier for relations with English speaking Christopher again news. Obviously, over the last 24 hours involving at this point about these layoffs off the presses or you’ll. Forgive me if I don’t have any comment for now, but will be speaking shortly about that. I believe the premier had a couple things to say during a scrum recently I’ll. Let him take the lead on that and the court case that involves another Premiere, that we were seeing speak with yours as Scott mild, Saskatchewan. meter status in that appeal. Why is that? This is about the potential for federal overreach, so we share that desire to say that jurisdictions within Canada, different provinces should have a say as to how the federal government pursues on its territory. So for us we have a little bit to say about our view on that on that, from the federal government’s point of view is about a national set of Standards, a national Target that they want to reach – and I know you’re province’s – talked a lot about the Effects of climate change in the actions that your Province to province is taking other provinces aren’t complying with that aren’t doing what needs to be done to get up to the Target. So we believe that we should be taught taxing and putting a cost to carbon. So we’re already there – this is more fundamentally about whether or not the federal government should have the right to impose its will on the provinces, and I think that’s more the discussion that we were and that’s why we’re seeking intervener status in this regard, give you a Quick example that she hear about the federal government deciding to spot-check an audit, the provincial governments with regards to the current plans that creates best rate of Burden. It creates duplication of effort. So we believe that in some ways that the federal government should just across the provinces to do what’s right – and I believe in in us – going away of our various International obligations in terms of climate. But what we don’t like is this idea that we micromanaging doing it. What evidence supports the idea that the federal government should just trust the province’s to do what’s right for years, the provinces did not meet their own targets as well. I believe twink as a Pioneer in cap and trade in North America. We think that we should be allowed to enact their own laws that get us to the Target and I think which are falling even more in ensuring that they actually do need those play in ensuring that kinda hits its Target. Wall2Wall application of rules impose on us from the central government. Let me give you another example: Justin c69 c69 would have the federal government tell us how to enact the remaining in our Province right Quebec been whining since the dawn of time, and I we have our own environmental assessment process. Is the federal government would have us duplicate that at the at the federal level as well, which we believe will slow down the economy, so we’re already doing a really good job and we’re currently our energy to our American and Ontario Partners, we’re doing we’re selling more Electric cars in Quebec than any other Province. I believe that the amount now is that 1200 a month of new electric cars that are coming on the market, so we’re already doing a lot when we don’t like reach and using their spending power to sort of tell us how to go forward. Well, you know I I can understand that that causes a problem for the federal government. However, I think the wider application here is whether or not probably should have the right to enact their own legislation so as to how the strategy would go for the federal government. I really don’t. I really don’t think that’s my ways to say. I believe that the courts have already established in Canada that we have shared jurisdiction in matters of environment and we’re just trying to make that hurt at the Supreme Court level.
