Canadian climate change plan starts taking shape... slowly
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.
From putting a price on carbon to pipelines to new emissions targets, we talk climate change politics with federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, British Columbia Premier Christy Clark and Quebec Environment Minister David Heurtel.
Then, In House panelists Rosemary Barton and Alex Boutilier weigh in on this week's meeting and Justin Trudeau's visit to Washington next week.
