"I'm disappointed to see the new government in Ontario has no plan to help families, schools and businesses reduce emissions, save money and create good jobs,"  Federal Environment Minister Catherine  McKenna said in a statement after the meeting. "Climate change doesn't stop with a change in government."
Phillips said he offered to discuss the Tory government's opposition to carbon pricing but said the federal minister would not address the subject.
"I was hoping that she would be open to discussion, to listening to our plans around climate change, and of course our intention to get rid of the carbon tax," he said. 
"I was disappointed. The minister was not open to that discussion, and unfortunately made it clear that only the Trudeau carbon tax solution is the solution that government is going to be interested in."
