Global News published this video item, entitled “COP26 summit: Trudeau says pollution pricing key to lowering emissions during leaders’ address” – below is their description.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau used his speech before world leaders gathered for the COP26 climate summit on Monday to call for the creation of a global price on carbon.

“Just as globally we’ve agreed to a minimum corporate tax, we must work together to ensure it is no longer free to pollute anywhere around the world,” he said.

Trudeau also announced his government’s latest effort to reduce Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions by committing to a cap on emissions from the country’s oil and gas sector.

Such a cap had been promised in the Liberals’ recent election platform, with plans to force emissions down until they hit net zero in 2050. A lack of regulations for the sector has long been a sore spot between environmental groups and Ottawa.

Monday’s summit was the first time Trudeau had been at a COP meeting since the Paris agreement was signed just weeks after he first became prime minister in 2015.
