MPP MONTE MCNAUGHTON SAYS GAS PRICES WITH GO DOWN WITH CAP AND TRADE PROGRAM SCRAPPED 7/5/2018 8:52:41 AM
On Tuesday Premier Doug Ford announced that the first order of the Progressive Conservative government would be to get rid of the cap and trade program.
Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton has been a clear supporter of getting rid of the program.
While the program is ending McNaughton says contracts will be honoured.
According to the Auditor General who conducted an audit of the program, it cost Ontarians and businesses $8 billion dollars.
All initiatives supported by the cap and trade fund will be decided on a case by case basis moving forward.
