Canada ratifies Paris climate accord

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau proposed a minimum price of Can$10 (US$7.60) per tonne of carbon pollution in 2018, rising incrementally over five years to Can$50 per tonneCanada ratified the landmark Paris climate accord on Wednesday despite significant domestic pushback over Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s carbon price proposal for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The 207-to-81 vote in the House of Commons came 30 days before the pact comes into force globally, and brings the total number of nations that have endorsed it to 74. Parliamentarians split along party lines, with Trudeau using his Liberal majority to push through ratification as the opposition Tories accused the government of heavy-handedness and betrayal.
