Trudeau government's carbon price is constitutional, Supreme Court of Canada rules

CA, 26 Mar 2021
The Supreme Court of Canada on Thursday has given the federal government the constitutional green light to impose a carbon price on the provinces.

In a split decision, the judges on the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) found that climate change poses a real, serious threat to the world — one that’s serious enough to allow the federal government to step on some provincial toes.

The court also noted that the price on carbon, often referred to by its detractors as a “carbon tax,” isn’t actually a tax in the constitutional sense.
