Saskatchewan Environment Minister Dustin Duncan says it’s disappointing and wonders why Ottawa can’t wait for a court ruling before bringing in the tax.
The federal government’s given provinces until January to get onboard with the tax or have it imposed on them.
Ontario supports Saskatchewan’s constitutional challenge of the levy as well as launching its own legal challenge.
