Premier Brad Wall says he’s very pleased with his time in Vancouver for the first ministers’ meeting this week.
He says he didn’t want the meeting to end with a nation-wide carbon tax, and to make sure any future climate initiatives have a thorough economic impact assessment done first.
Wall says the evaluation needs to be rigorous for the sake of all Canadians.
“We need to be telling Canadians here’s how it will impact your household budget, here’s what might happen at the pumps, what could happen in respect to jobs.”
Wall continues to push for the Energy East Pipeline, saying the federal government should be championing the project.
