Cap and trade, a carbon tax by another name, raises prices on goods and services rather than the taxes on them.

It was unclear what, if anything, the Ontario government would implement in contrast to curb resale prices.
"Canadians expect us to protect the environment and grow our economy, and we are taking action". "We know that the premier. promised to get rid of cap and trade and we understand he's moving quickly to fulfill that promise but I think that there are some problems here because there are some questions that haven't been answered", he said.

"The Ontario government will need to find billions of dollars to buy back those permits, or risk being sued".
