‘Defending Saskatchewan’: Moe prepared to take legal actions over pollution laws


1 minute read

NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask. — Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe says he is prepared to take legal actions over federal regulations on pollution.

“The situation has been exacerbated in recent years by the current federal government’s continued interference in the province’s jurisdiction over natural resources under the guise of federal environmental regulation,” Moe said Tuesday.

“It is time to defend and assert Saskatchewan’s economic autonomy by ‘drawing the line’: taking a number of steps including the introduction of provincial legislation to clarify and protect Saskatchewan’s constitutional rights.”

A cost analysis from Saskatchewan’s Ministry of Finance says the province could lose $111 billion by 2035 through federal environmental policies.

Saskatchewan previously challenged the federal government on the constitutionality of the price on carbon, but lost after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled Ottawa is acting within its jurisdiction.
