LILLEY: Supreme Court sets dangerous precedent with carbon tax ruling

DM

Is there anything that could stop the federal government from imposing its will on every province in the country on any given issue? The most truthful answer would be only the whim of the Supreme Court. Thursday’s 6-3 decision from the Supreme Court upholding the legality of the Trudeau government’s carbon tax may be cheered by those who support the policy but the way the court got there should worry everyone who values Canada’s federation. This decision sets the stage for an ever-expanding federal government taking over areas of provincial jurisdiction.
