Doug Ford meets Andrew Scheer as carbon tax fight heats up

By Mike Crawley, CBC News, October 30, 2018

Ontario Premier Doug Ford will take another step in forging a national alliance against the federal Liberal carbon tax when he meets Tuesday with Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer.

It will be the first time Ford and Scheer have met since August, when the premier was greeted with wild enthusiasm at the Conservative Party of Canada convention.

With a fresh mandate as premier of Canada's largest province, Ford now plays a key role on the national political scene, and is inserting himself into federal politics with growing frequency as next year's election creeps closer. His primary targets are Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his carbon pricing plan.
