Carbon incentives would help Keystone bid, Canada's Liberal Party leader says


Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau says he would boost Canada’s case for approval of the Keystone XL pipeline (TRP -0.2%) by introducing financial incentives to curb greenhouse-gas emissions in the oil and gas industry.

Canada should establish a price for carbon emissions to show it is addressing climate change and to give Pres. Obama political cover to approve the pipeline, Trudeau says.

Trudeau’s call to action contrasts with Prime Minister Harper’s position that he won’t regulate oil and gas emissions without similar U.S. measures because it would put Canadian producers at a competitive disadvantage.

    Unfortunately Trudeau is long on ideas and short on experience. Putting Canadian industry at a disadvantage does not do anyone in Canada any good.

    It's scary to think that an empty suit like that may become prime minister. Canadians are not supposed to give cover to any American president. Americans should deal with their own mess.
