The federal government used a favorable court decision on its carbon tax Friday to put pressure on premiers who don’t like it to stop fighting it.

The Saskatchewan Court of Appeal ruled in a split decision that the tax imposed on provinces without a carbon price of their own is constitutional.

“Today’s decision is a win for Canadians and for future generations,” Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said in Ottawa. “This decision confirms that putting a price on carbon pollution … is an effective and essential part of any serious response to the global challenge of climate change,” she said.
