CBC: Ontario’s premier Doug Ford slammed the new federal carbon tax hike on Tuesday April 2, at a news conference in East Gwillimbury, Ont.

“We stand against the carbon,” said Ford. “We know Ontario businesses can’t afford this costly burden.”

Drivers will pay extra 3.3 cents per litre at the gas pumps.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that while the price of pollution is rising, so is the Canada Carbon Rebate.

The increase will also mean larger cheques to help families offset the higher cost of fuel.

In Ontario, a single-person household will receive $140 and a family of four will receive $280 every three months, said Trudeau. Families are next set to receive a cheque on April 15.
