The Canadian Civil Liberties Association says the Sticker Act violates the Constitution. Premier Doug Ford’s PC government brought in the legislation as part of its battle with Ottawa. The province argues it wants consumers to know what the federal carbon charge will cost Ontario drivers.The liberties group says in its filing that it has not found a gas station willing to fight the law, that took effect on August 30th.
