Kerry, Wilkinson talk U.S.-Canada climate work

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 24 Feb, 2021 10:33 PM
  • Kerry, Wilkinson talk U.S.-Canada climate work

The spirit of cross-border co-operation is lingering as Canada's environment minister talks climate change priorities with presidential envoy John Kerry.

Jonathan Wilkinson says he expects Canada and the United States to push each other to reach more ambitious climate targets as they work together over the next few months.

Today's conversation follows a virtual meeting Tuesday between Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Joe Biden.

The two leaders vowed to move "in lockstep" in a shared North American effort to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

Wilkinson says Canada hopes to set a new target for emissions cuts by 2030 — somewhere between 31 and 40 per cent of 2005 levels — before Biden's April 22 climate summit.
