Premier Doug Ford says the Ontario government will remove the cost of the now-repealed cap-and-trade system from natural gas bills.
Ford says the change means families will save 80 dollars a year and small businesses will save 285 dollars annually.
Ford says the carbon tax is needlessly driving up costs for Ontarians.
The Tory government canceled cap and trade last month and had launched a court challenge of Ottawa’s ability to impose a carbon tax on the province.
The change will go into effect on October 1st.
