ONTARIO INTRODUCES BILL TO REVOKE CAP AND TRADE PROGRAM
The Ontario government has introduced a bill that would revoke the Canadian province's Cap and Trade Program. The bill, referred to as the Cap and Trade Cancellation Act, would repeal the 2016 Climate Change Mitigation and Low-Carbon Economy Act, which introduced the program in an effort to mitigate climate change. The new legislation focuses on putting an end to the program, but also includes provisions concerning how the province intends to address greenhouse gas emissions and climate change in the future.
