Recap. Ontario’s top court struck down the Ford government’s case against the tax back in June. The top court said the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act was in fact “constitutionally sound.” That was followed up with an announcement from Ford, saying his government would appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada and were willing to spend $30 million to do so.
