EDMONTON — The federal carbon tax comes into effect in Alberta on Wednesday, but the provincial government insists it’s nowhere near done fighting against the Liberal attempt to cut down emissions, saying Albertans voted against the tax in the election last spring. On Tuesday, Justice Minister Doug Schweitzer told the National Post that the government is doing “everything in our power” to fight in court against the carbon tax. “With the current divisions in the country, the courts are not living in a bubble, they see what’s happening across our country, and they know how divided things can be,” Schweitzer said. “Hopefully they hear that as well in our submissions, that we (can) start bringing this country together.”
