Toronto Life - - The Fifty Most Influential 2018 -

doug ford stormed into Queen’s Park wag­ing war against the fed­eral cli­mate change plan, and Phillips, his en­vi­ron­ment min­is­ter, is his first line of of­fence. Phillips has held top po­si­tions at Post­media, CivicAc­tion and the OLG. In his new role, he’s re­spon­si­ble for scrap­ping On­tario’s cap-and-trade sys­tem, and will spend up to $30 mil­lion fight­ing the feds over it. If the car­bon tax is a high-pro­file is­sue in the 2019 fed­eral elec­tion, it’ll be due in part to Phillips, who’s ap­peared on CTV and Metro Morn­ing to preach the anti-car­bon tax gospel. friends in high places: Post­media CEO Paul God­frey, TIFF’s Cameron Bai­ley, TD exec Tim Hockey, for­mer mayor Mel Last­man.
