Consumers Council of Canada Attacks Constitutionality of Ontario’s Green Energy Taxation

Tom Adams Energy

Today the Consumers Council of Canada filed a motion before the Ontario Energy Board challenging the authority of the Ontario Energy Board to levy the Green Energy Act taxes imposed under Ontario Regulation 66/10. On April 23rd, the OEB wrote to electricity distributors ordering them to initiate accounting procedures required to collect the tax.  

If the Ontario government is successful in implementing taxes through regulation on electricity consumers, similar taxes on natural gas customers are expected soon.

  1. McGuinty and Gang are so desperate for money to replace the scandalous spending and unscrupulous dealings of OLG, Cancer Care not to mention E Health and the billions spent on foreign companies that anything is possible. If this challenge ever gets off the ground it could lead all the way down to the Wind Industry executives that would be implicated as well.
