Cap and Trade and Carbon Tax.
Ontario’s Minister of the Environment and Climate Change has been mandated by the Premier to develop an updated Ontario Climate Change Strategy to meet the Province’s greenhouse gas reduction targets.  The Premier has also noted that Ontario will introduce a price on carbon emissions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the province.
