This week, The House focuses on what came out of the tense first ministers meeting in Vancouver. 

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the country's premiers emerged from their meeting this week to say they are working toward a national climate change plan that includes an agreement in principle for a carbon-pricing mechanism — although they did not offer specifics on how it would work.

They agreed to meet again in six months.
