Environment ministers meet in Toronto.
TORONTO - The federal environment minister met with her Ontario counterpart in Toronto on Thursday, where they discussed the province's new plan to address climate change. The Progressive Conservative government's plan, unveiled last week, replaces the cap-and-trade system brought in by the previous Liberal regime and does not put a price on carbon. The new plan will use taxpayer dollars to spur private investment in clean technologies and create performance standards for large emitters. Federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has urged Ontario to enact a carbon pricing plan, a federal requirement that Premier Doug Ford has consistently pushed back on.
