Canada’s only two NDP premiers are teaming up to fight climate change by signing an agreement to work together on the issue.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley was in Winnipeg Friday to meet with Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger.
Their day ended by signing a memorandum to co-operate on various energy initiatives.
Selinger calls the agreement a good first step.
“It’s a partnership that will benefit not only Albertan’s and Manitoban’s, but we believe the whole country. It will create good jobs, good economic opportunities for the future and ensure your communities are sustainable for the future.”
Notley and Selinger have taken different paths to fight climate change.
Alberta will be introducing a carbon tax in the coming years while Manitoba will be using a cap-and-trade system for the province’s largest emitters.
