Trudeau ‘open’ to other carbon pricing systems as premiers set to testify

Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe appeared at a House of Commons committee Wednesday morning to testify against the carbon price increase, while Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is calling on premiers opposed to the increase to present their ideas for addressing climate change.

Trudeau sent a letter to seven premiers who are calling for a pause on the upcoming carbon price increase, including Newfoundland and Labrador’s Liberal Premier Andrew Furey.

Global News obtained a copy of the letter from a government source.

“Yes, people need to fight climate change, but any province that wants to put forward a similarly robust way to fight climate change, but do it in a way that works for them is more than welcome to and has been from the very beginning of our price on pollution,” Trudeau said at a press conference in Vancouver Wednesday when asked about the letter.
