The province got a lot of support for its court case against the Federal Government’s Carbon Tax.

Yesterday, representatives for the Provinces of New Brunswick and Ontario spoke in support of Saskatchewan’s case before the Court of Appeal.

Saskatchewan is arguing the carbon tax is unconstitutional.

APAS was among the interveners in the case, President Todd Lewis says their lawyers made their presentation yesterday (Wednesday).

“Our story’s always been that farmers and ranchers have done a great job of managing carbon without a carbon tax. We put that story forward again today with the hope that it gives the court some pause to think about how a tax like this will affect everybody.”

Lewis says it will probably take weeks or even months before there’s a decision, adding that a case like this will probably end up at the Supreme Court.
