Poll: Most Favour Ford's Carbon Tax Fight

Ontario | by Fadi Didi  

57% of respondents to Bayshore Broadcasting News Poll favour plan to combat Ottawa on tax

Premier Doug Ford is vowing to take the federal government to court, over a soon-to-be-imposed carbon tax that will take effect January 1st in Ontario.

This follows Ford's scrapping of the cap-and-trade plan on carbon emissions, brought in by the previous Liberal regime.

In our latest online poll, we asked whether the Premier's challenge of a federal carbon tax was right or wrong.

57 per cent of respondents feel challenging Ottawa is the right move, with most citing the price of energy and gasoline as unaffordable.

Nearly a quarter of those voters feel dropping the carbon tax will be better for business.

Meantime, 43 per cent of respondents say challenging the carbon tax is a poor move, with more than half of voters saying a carbon tax is the best way to curb emissions.

Roughly a quarter of carbon tax proponents feel greenhouse gas emitters should have to pay for their pollution.
