Ontario’s environmental commissioner says fewer than one percent of people who weighed in on the government’s decision to scrap the province’s cap and trade system expressed clear support for the move.

Dianne Saxe says her office reviewed most of the 11,000 comments submitted as part of a public consultation on a bill introduced last year to dismantle the carbon pricing system brought in by the previous Liberal government.

Saxe says almost all respondents wrote to voice support for decisive action on climate change, and many were dismayed that cap and trade was being canceled — particularly before a replacement plan was announced.
