Cap-and-Trade Puts Ontario Industry at Competitive Disadvantage


Queen’s Park– PC Critic for the Environment and Cap-and-Trade Lisa Thompson released the following statement today regarding Ontario’s climate strategy:

“The Premier’s comments on climate change today are another stunning example of Liberal hypocrisy.

Kathleen Wynne claims she wants to balance the needs of the environment and the economy, yet her Liberal government pushes ahead with a cap-and-trade scheme that will impose significant new costs on manufacturing and put Ontario industry at a competitive disadvantage.

We can’t afford risky schemes that will put the jobs of hardworking men and women at risk. Ontario needs a government that will address climate change through innovation and conservation while protecting and growing our economy”.
